Insulating basement carpet pad into?

Posted by jb on November 27th, 2001 09:56 AM

Does anyone have any thoughts regarding what to use under a carpet on a basement concrete floor. My basement is nice and dry - I'm turning one room down there into a finished space for a playroom for the kiddies. I don't want the floor to be ice cold but I am trying to avoid having to do all the rigid insulation, sleepers, plywood, etc. and also losing ceiling height. I think I would settle for some sort of insulating pad, heavier and more R-value than regular pad. This should take the edge off I think. My question is, what is this stuff called and where do I buy it? I saw something on the web but it was pretty esoteric and made in some ferin country, etc. Thoughts?... I'm JB that posts regularly so I'm not a complete simpleton, just a regular simpleton...
