All info/experience appreciated. Specifically R-value and durability on concrete slab.

Never used it but did take a look at the install pdf. You've no doubt done some more study so I'll ask this-

They show one single length board, with all the ends of the succeeding boards even. They all show a groove (I think) at the end-

Do they deal with end joining more than that one board and if so, why didn't they stagger the ends and complete the run shown in the pdf?

thanks.

Just took a look at an install video and see that they do in fact stagger and fill the width b/4 pulling the film.

Would be interesting to hear about it if you decide to use it. If you could do a photo log of your install and post here, all the better.

Best of luck.

Calvin, yours was the only response I got on three construction lists. Customer decided she wanted more r-value and tried and true method. I was concerned about installing it in an entry hall and water seeping through to the glue mat. Would have been easier, but I wouldn't trust it.

I only wish I could have been more help.

And sometimes the tried and true is the better way to go..........

Because like most things, the ease of the instructional video has often been edited to ease it a bit more.
