Always remind customer to make sure to mark out location of piping before covering!! The infrared below was taken on a new home construction project where the plumbing from boiler was covered before anyone bothered to make sure of location. Needless to say, when they were done and wanted to finish the floor, there was a problem! I had to spend time marking out locations to be avoided during finish work.

Thanks.  I have always installed tubing over 2" foam, not 4".  With optimum soil conditions (mostly what I deal with where I am) there is little need to go with anything over 2" foamboard insulation in the floor.  Perimeter insulation is, in my opinion, as important if not more than the floor.

Eric:  nice photos of your quality work.  questions for you on your radiant basement floor, pls confirm 4" pinkboard (nicely taped), what type of clips? and what underlayment(s)?
