How do I insulate a concrete floor

Postby dchopp » Mon Jun 02, 2008 9:19 am

I have a brick built room in the garden with a concrete floor. There is PVC flooring on the floor but however much you heat the room your feet get cold.
To try and remedy this I have considered laying some form of insulation on the concrete with a thin panel of MDF board followed by re-laying the PVC. I did not wish to use carpet.

Is this an acceptable solution and can somebody help on advising the type of insulation material

Simply Build It

The best way is to, use a self leveling compound to get a level floor, then to lay Styrofoam over, followed by two layers of 9mm ply overlapped and glued.
This will give you a warm strong floor.
You will probably need to raise the door frame and door, or risk bumping someones head.
