Pre-Installation Floor Prep
We want to replace the floor in our basement TV room. The floor is a concrete slab on dirt that currently has carpet and pad on it. The house has always felt/smelled musty even though we've not seen water coming in, and we think this carpet is part of the problem. I also think that the slab itself may be an issue.
We're looking at a vinyl plank flooring product, probably Karndean loose lay tile. Would it make sense to apply something like Drylok masonry waterproofer or Drylok floor paint before we install our flooring, regardless of what we get?
