I have a basement that opens to the backyard, thus only have infrequent water issues on the front side of the basement. I have sump pumps and drainage lines to take care of the basement and it works 99% of the time. After Hurricane Florence, I lost power for 8 days and get some water intrusion on the front side of my basement. I had installed DriCore subfloor many years ago which is a 2'x2', T&G subfloor with plastic feet and a vapor barrier under plywood. This worked well other than the area immediately adjacent to the front walls which have around 5' of dirt in front of them. I need to tear out about 3' of the DriCore in the front most room of the basement, as the plywood got wet and I do want mold issues. I was at Home Depot ordering replacement DriCore and got the idea of making this 3' section out of composite decking which would match up with the DriCore in height. It seems to be a good idea, as it works outside, but the only issue I am confused about would be potential smell issues if it gets wet. Being an outdoor product, smell is not an issue. Anyone have any expertise on this product?
