Forum Title: Carpet in Basement
Hello! I've been reading up on your forum and finding all the information extremely helpful. Now I would like to get some job specific input from the pros... I have a partial basement in my house that currently has ceramic tile over slab on grade. The slab is below grade on one side, on grade at the other (live on a hill) It USED to get a small amount of water (a few spilled drinks' worth in two spots) during heavy rainfall, but I have corrected this issue by diverting water away from the house and have not seen any water in about a year. We have high humidity in the south (Alabama), and working HVAC (of course) I would like to put down carpet, but before doing so I need to level the floor as there are peaks and valleys throughout. I would like to do this over the existing tile, as I really don't want to scrape up over 400SF of tile on concrete. That just sounds like a nightmare. I plan on leveling the floor myself and then hiring out the carpet installation. What method and what materials should I use to level the floor? What carpet and pad would you recommend for this situation? Any info you can provide would be a big help! Marc W.
