Installing a Garage Floor

Posted by Kurt Bower on April 28th, 1998 06:53 PM

We will be installing a concrete garage floor and I
have a couple of questions (Binghamton, NY):
1. We compacted the soil within the foundation in Aug
1998. We filled it with surrounding soil (some of
it is red clay) and compacted every 6". Any way to
assure it won't settle? It doesn't appear to have
settled so far. (I assume wetting it will just
cause a mess)
2. What is the minimum standard flooring components:
6" gravel; 6" thick slab with reinf. mesh; 4000 psi
3. Will putting plastic between gravel and concrete
eliminate swetting of the concrete?

Any other hints or suggestions? Thank you
