Wet basement floor on 4 yr old home

In reply to Pouring concrete over existing slab by Deb C. on March 24th, 1999 04:25 PM [Go to top of thread]

My basement floor is wet., The house was built on a high water table and in silty soil. It appears that there is water trapped under the slab. It also appears that the vapor barrier was folded over in areas. I want to put a plastic vapor barrier down,over the existing floor, and then some gravel, then another vapor barrier on top of this...the cover it with a few inches of concrete. Does this sound like a good plan or not.
