Wood Subfloor over concrete not penetrating the vapor retarder

#4
Some of the older flooring guys have showed me some amazing uses for asphalt impregnated felt.. I bet it would work just fine as you said.

I saw an old tile installer use it as a slip sheet over a crack in the slab. He put his ceramic right over the top. I was upset as all get-out because it was my job (I was the QC rep for the builder) but he assured me this would work. I of course wanted to use the latest and greatest crack membrane on the market.

I checked that restroom for 5 years and never saw any hairline crack at all. Now was it because of the felt or because the slab never moved?

I can confidently say I know next to nothing in the grand scheme of things.... Tongue
