I am finishing a basement which has lots of windows and good headroom (8').
The floor is bare concrete which I painted with drylok. The basement has been
very dry since I have regraded the land around the house. The only problem is
in the full heat and humidity of summer, when the basement windows are open
there is a bit of condensation in some spots of the cool concrete floor.
Can I just have a pad and carpeting installed over the concrete? Will the pad &
carpet provide a bit of insulation between the cold floor and the warm air to
prevent condensation? Is a special carpet pad needed for basement areas?
If I really need to put in a subfloor, has anyone heard or used "dricore"?
