Concrete slab question


I have a home which is on a slab, no basement or crawlspace. Under normal circumstances, is there supposed to be any type of subfloor material laid on top of the concrete slab before carpet/padding is put down, or [any type] of tile is laid?

Concrete slab question


both tile and carpet can be applied directly to the slab providing the slab is and will remain dry.

Concrete slab question


Hello MUDPAWS its been awhile .As bob stated above you should be fine as long as the slab is dry. How did your sheathing and siding project turn out.
