Correct basement slab poly install
Getting ready to start a new home and have a few questions about the basement slab. I understand I need the gravel put down first, then XPS, and then vapor barrier before the slab. I keep reading about many different kinds of poly to use as the vapor barrier. I have found this poly and was wondering if it will be suitable? It is Grip Rite 10 mil clear poly sheeting, and it is made from virgin resins. I have also read that it must be black colored poly under the slab. Does the color really make a difference? Thanks for any input/suggestions.
