carpeting on basement floors

Posted by wayne on March 1st, 2003 11:22 AM

I have a bare basement floor that I want to cover for a new living area. The basement concrete floor is dry and well drained outside but I fear any smells, moulds and carpet damage from moisture migration after new carpet installation. Tile is a non issue and lino only in the bathroom area on a sub floor.

Is vapor barrier plastic under underlay and carpet a good idea. I'd like to hear of your experiences if you've tried this. It sounds like the cheapest method of covering a bare concrete floor.
