I am a new DIY and I am looking for a surface to put over indoor
asphalt. I have looked all over for some info but can't locate any
info on indoor asphalt.
Here's the problem:
The surface is indoors - an old shed that was converted by the
previous owners into an aviary which I would now like to turn into a
music rehersal space.
The floor is asphalt and gets very damp especially in the summer. At
first I had an indoor/outdoor carpet over the asphalt and used the
space this way ....uintil the mod grew. Got rid of the rugs and now am
down to asphalt.
The room is damp and also very reflective so sound is bouncing all
over the place.
I was thinking of laying Dri-Core over the asphalt and then laying
rugs over top the dri-core for sound absorption.
Can dri-core be used over asphalt in this manner? Becasue of the
moisture in the asphalt, do I need a moisture barrier first?
If not Dri-Core, is there anything that *can*
be used over indoor
asphalt to finish the flooring so that I can lay come carpeting down.
Thanks for any advice.
