    Re: Basement Subfloor Questions

    I can bring some of the samples (leftovers) to the next Board Meeting - we should have one soon, BTW. That picture looks close but as Mike mentioned there are channels to let water flow under the foam in mine. The channels are just a bevel in the foam towards all 4 edges. It is 2'x2' T&G interlocking pieces. It is a floating floor - you leave a 1/4" gap around the edges and use some molding (1/2" quarter round) on top the edges and let it float underneath that.

    The OVRX tolerates slightly uneven floors, but the Dri-Core has to be shimmed level - another advantage.

    Here's the thread from back when I installed mine.

    You can't make the same mistake twice. The second time it becomes a choice, rather than a mistake.
