We are graveling the basement floor of the cottage this weekend 4″ high and would like to know if it is necessary to poly the gravel once we are finished or can we use tarps for the winter. We have alot of black tarps and wondered if we could use this instead of the poly.
We will not be pouring the floor until next year and thought if we gravelled it it would help with keeping the heat in and the moisture down. We will also be pink insulating /vabour barrier the front wall which is the only wall that is not block.
We are in Ontario so the freeze thaw is an issue.
