My basement was 2/3s insulated by the builder. Do I completed the framing/insulation to the floor. I decided to go on top of this wall with a Dri Core Smart Wall system and DMX on the floor. Is it better to put in the DMX 1st then the wall on top or but the DMX up to the wall. For the bathroom I'll use a bathroom recommended wall board for showers and floor (tiled).
Contractors I spoke to only wanted to do traditional walls, so I'm on my own this is my first time building anything. I've had the basement drawn up by a professional for electrical and wall placement. Electrical and plumbing will be done by professionals. Laminate floor 15mm with foam backing will go on the floor, bathroom is tiled.
Any guidance in doing basement would be appreciated.
Over the years we've installed thousands of floors in basements so I'm writing from the perspective of your flooring. Just a heads up with the laminate. The products with pad attached do not cover the joints so you have no protection again moisture. I just had a customer with that same problem and moisture got into the joints and as a result the laminate swelled and warped. The best way to is always to lay a sub-floor but to be honest, very few people can afford to do that, so just make sure you're covered, maybe buy a less expensive and thinner moisture barrier pad to lay on the concrete before installing your laminate.
Hope this helps.
