Concrete Sealer or Latex Screed?

Postby supersteamer » Fri Apr 12, 2019 3:51 pm

I have some old, bare suspended concrete floors that I want to put underlay and carpet on. They are a bit dusty but seem completely dry.

I'm not sure how to proceed.

Can I just paint on concrete sealer? Or should I lay a latex screed? What is the difference - pros/cons?

(Somebody also suggested I put DPM and plywood over the floor first.)

What I'm looking for is least dust and longest lasting solution. Any advice much appreciated!
