Dry and Comfortable Floors in Existing Basements
Applying any kind of floor finish over a basement concrete slab can be a challenge due to the potential of water migration and leakage, either through the slab itself or the walls. This research examines various options that can be used, depending on the degree of moisture present in the basement. The least expensive, safest floor finishes for wet basements are bare concrete or painted concrete. There are alternatives that can be used judiciously, but the possibility for moisture retention and mold growth remains.
