Walking on a cold floor is something everyone wants to avoid especially during those cold months. No matter what you choose for flooring it’s important that you install a basement sub-floor. A sub-floor provides insulation as well as resistance to mold and moisture damage. If you go with the traditional wood sub-floor you run the risk of rot and mold if the sub-flooring takes on water or water vapor. Innovative Basement Authority’ Insulated Floor Decking is great option for sub-flooring when installing wall-to-wall carpeting or padding in a finished basement.
Flooring has interlocking tiles that create a vapor barrier on your concrete floor that keep humidity away from your carpet on top. floor tiles have a special design that lifts them off the basement floor. This creates a thermal break underneath that will make the surface of your tiles 8-10 degrees warmer than the cold concrete below. It contains no organic, moisture-absorbing material, so it won’t grow mold or be damaged by moisture. The layer of rigid foam insulation ensures that your finished flooring will be comfortable and warm. Decking is also versatile,and can be used beneath all types of finished flooring.
Decking is made of ExTremeBloc rigid foam insulation mixed with magnesium oxide under-layment board. Sub-flooring comes in 2-ft x 4-ft panels that interlock without fasteners.
