I had some building plans prepared by an architect. He called for a
vapor barrier to be put under the carpeting that is on ground level
and has a concrete base. What type of product should I use? Just
clear plastic film?
Carpet installers don't do this type of work.
visquine.. the clear platic that the concrete workers put under the
concrete before pouring it.. i bough a roll of that stuff in a box, it
was like 10 ft. by 100 feet.. cost me about $12 about 15 yrs. ago.. got
it from the same company that sells rebars and wire mesh that goes into
the concrete when you pour a concrete slab..... look in the yellow pages
for concrete supplies, reinforcing rods, etc. and you will find the
companies that sell it......
its a vapor barrier and i cant remember the thickness of the stuff, but
it was alot thicker than the stuff they sell in the local hardware store
for a paint drop cloth.......

What? The architect's plans are about steel, concrete, rebar,
drainage, framing, windows, roofing, HVAC. He doesn't get into what
type of carpeting or flooring to use. It was his "recommendation" to
use a vapor barrier on the ground floor. When you have something
useful to say please respond then.
