Saturated Felt Blocks Dampness When the concrete fiooi- of a basementless house rests on the ground, a waterproof membrane of asphalt saturated felt will help keep the interior of the home dry and comfortable. The ground, should be covered first with a coarse granular fill about 6 inches deep. This should be topped with a thin coating made from 1 part portland cement, 3 parts screened sand and water. To apply the waterproof membrane, mop hot asphalt over the cement coating. Place a layer of 15-pound .asphalt saturated roofing felt over the hot asphalt. Then mop with hot asphalt again, place a 2nd layer of felt and apply a final hot asphalt coating on top. The 'concrete floor slab goes over the protective asphalt felt.
