What is a sub-floor?
A sub-floor, especially important for New England homes, is a rough floor that is laid under popular basement flooring materials like hardwood, laminate, tile, stone, vinyl, rubber, or carpet. It protects against damage from moisture that could seep up from the ground through your floor and destroy flooring materials. In locations where there is a lot of rain and snow, sub-flooring is essential to improving the quality of your basement, warmth of your home, and general foundation. Basement Solutions of New England, Inc. recommends that all basements have a sub-floor, despite where your home is located.
Sub-flooring increases the value of your home, your number one investment. It is an inexpensive step to take when converting a basement from a simple storage area into a livable space. Add an extra game room, family lounge, or work space with the comfort, warmth, and dryness of a new sub-floor. Basement Solutions of New England, Inc. installs:
In a conventional basement, dry air in the living space acts as a magnet for water vapor seeping up through the concrete. But with the DELTA®-FL system, the space between the dimples provides a sufficient air-gap to equalize the water pressure above and below the concrete slab.
Though the air in the living space is completely isolated from the system, DELTA®-FL is designed to allow small amounts of water vapor into the room to maintain a healthy humidity level.
The membrane also provides a thermal break that generates instant comfort and warmth for your basement. DELTA®-FL is an inert material. The air-gap membrane has an outstanding compressive strength of > 250 kN/m², is extremely tough and rugged and can withstand heavy loads which allows for any finishing on top of the membrane.
The reduction in head room is minimal and the product is extremely easy and fast to install. DELTA®-FL comes with a 20 year product warranty.
