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"? http://www.dricore.com /
