Reader Question: Warming Up Concrete Floors

One objective I have for useful spaces is to answer any questions you might have about kitchen design or other topics I write about.

After posting about concrete floors I received this question:

"Can you use Nuheat under concrete?"

Nuheat is an electric heating pad that is typically installed under tile floors. There are many other varieties of this type of heating system, but they all essentially work the same way.

Gary at Colormaker Floors supplies the answer:

Hi Arne. Yes the electrical type is pretty straight forward....we would bury the matt with a layer of Pterra (a concrete overlay) at 1/4 inch deep then put another layer of one of our Micro toppings for the coloration process.
