    I am putting a new basement floor in because the current concrete floor is buckled and broken due to "soft wet/marshy" ground. The footings for the support beams for the house go down 4 feet to reach "hard pan" in order to support the house in this wet/marshy soil. I have the options of 1...

    I just had my basement waterproofed from the interior and need to seal the new concrete. I figured I would just do the whole floor, so I bought some behr floor stripper to remove what I assumed was regular adhesive. After two applications, the majority of the adhesive still remains.

    Hi, New home basement floor and I want to "cover" it. What do I use? Wife hates carpet. Rooms will be bedrooms, bathroom, safe room, family room, utilities room, and storage area. This floor has not been treated with anything and I really don't where to begin. Ideas are welcome. TS:eek:

    I have a house and I am in the process of finishing the basement. I just put down Allure Resilient flooring.
