You can get this product at Lowe's. They can special order if it's not in stock. I would still recommend etching and sealing your floor prior to applying the dimpled membrane. Yes' it will allow for air circulation but if you have an issue with hydro-static pressure you will still get some moisture and possibly mold.

We have a tiled basement floor, I would like to install carpet on top of it. We don't have any water issues in the basement but about a year ago we got molding in one particular portion of the basement and it used to smell moldy too. This was just one time occurrence, it has not spread and it did not happen to any other area. What are the suggestions for installing the carpet??

I thought about doing this project but having an older home I don't have a level floor. There is not huge dips but I didn't want to start the project with this consideration.

I'm in the process of doing this project and looking for input. What do you do around the floor drain?
