The construction crew completed installation of the underslab insulation today. This insulation, 2 inches of extruded polystyrene (XPS), will keep heat from escaping the concrete floor slab into the ground, and it will help to keep the concrete slab dry. Below the insulation is a layer of crushed stone to ensure that all water is able to drain away from the slab, keeping it dry and free of cracks. Before Envinity pours the concrete slab, they will lay down overlapping sheets of 6 mil polyethylene as a final layer to protect the concrete slab from water and moisture. All of this protection will make the slab warmer but will also keep it lasting for decades without issues of cracking or breaking.
