basement subfloor question


I have a quick question...If I decided to put down a subfloor in my basement such as osb with a rigid foam and moisture barrier underneath what do I do about floor drains and clean outs? Obviously I just can't cover them up. Thanks.

you'd need to leave access to them. cover with same material, just leave it like a "hatch" to get access as needed.

Does that just thread into the existing cleanout and what about for floor drains with just the grate sitting on top?

you can dress it up as much as you want or leave it looking just like it does now.

you just have to leave access. whether that means just trimming around the existing grate or cap or covering it with an access panel or something similar, its up to you.

you would have to look at your existing cleanout and match something up. the link was for reference only as to one idea.
