Basement Remodeling articles and ideas for persons embarking on a home DIY project.
Posted on July 18, 2011 by adminModuTile manufactures two types of edges for the loop-to-peg interlocking floor tiles. We call them “Ramp Edges with Loops” and “Ramp Edges NO Loops”. The names refer to the loops on the long side of the ramp edge. Because the tiles are modular in nature, you have the option to select either type of edge for your installation. There is no right or wrong decision. However, depending on how you start your installation and the type of room in which you are installing the interlocking floor tiles, you may want to consider selecting one vs. the other. Let me explain what we mean by that.
Posted on June 21, 2011 by adminAccording to the US Department of Energy best practice, managing vapor and moisture on a basement is critical. Excluding an obvious water leak into the basement, water enters a basements through the concrete slab via a phenomenon called capillary action. Capillary action is the ability of a liquid to flow against gravity where liquid spontaneously rises in a narrow space. Because of this phenomenon, building assemblies should be allowed to dry to the inside of the room. Any material installation over the building walls or floors that prevents this is not recommended. Materials such as vinyl sheets, linoleum, rubber floors, Epoxy and other sealants do nothing to prevent the ground water from infiltrating the slab through capillary action.
