If your new build is not yet built - you could confirm that they will be putting poly under the concrete floor (which I believe is code these days). That would prevent a lot of moisture from wicking up through the concrete.
a vapour barrier is still required ,, due to many reasons, big one being is concrete sweats, no mater what is under the slab

I opted for the larger width rolls of Delta MS. It's not on sale but the per ft. cost is almost the same anyways. If you have larger spaces to cover this lets you do it faster with less seams. Just a thought. This membrane plus 4X8 sheets of OSB makes quick work of most basements.

Good find OP! Finally brings it back to the prices when I bought this stuff 2 years ago before prices for everything skyrocketed. I need 6 more rolls.

For those installing, make sure you put some landscaping fabric underneath this stuff or else you'll hear a clicking sound as you walk on it.

That does sound strange, but I did find some install videos of people doing that. I thought since the delta-fl basically is the vapour barrier, you wouldnt want anything underneath it.

Snap, this is really cheap. I'm at the flooring stage in finishing my basement and was planning on doing DMX airflow. I got part of a roll for free from a co worker and it seems like quality stuff, but I still need 3 more (at $110 each!). Now debating going with this delta stuff...

Great deal. We used this, direct on concrete, and then the Costco laminate https://www.costco.ca/Golden-Select-Tol ... 58267.html
Love it.
Easy to install, and really warm.
Highly recommended

I used Delta FL in my basement right after I took possession in a new build. There shouldn’t be any issues with doing that.
I also recommend a landscape fabric under the Delta FL. It is breathable and will quiet any clicks.
On top of the FL I used 3/4” tongue and groove plywood tapconned to the concrete and then added laminate flooring.
No moisture issues and it feels warmer.

If using this on concrete and with laminate, what else do I need? Originally I was planning on using DMX airflow and laying laminate directly on top. But with delta being about 1/3 of the price, it's tough to ignore.
I'm assuming I need some sort of padding between the delta and laminate to keep it warmer and quiet?

go with what the manufacturer of your flooring recommends ... i prefer the foam underlay for laminate, makes for a much more silent floor

with delta and laminate no need for a osb or plywood subfloor ,,

This will do very little for cold. If you want to finish your basement properly and live in the space wait for a sale and save the tax and buy Dricore or barracarde.
I used this stuff in my first home knowing I wouldn't stay and installed laminate over top. Floor was cold.
In my new home we have used Dricore and sprayfoamed the walls, it's the warmest area of my home.

This product is good to keep moisture down but imo is only good for a home you aren't staying in permanently

Seems weird to me to need landscaping fabric for clicks even when securing it down with tapcon screws into the concrete.

I was looking to buy DMX foundation wrap and OSB tongue and groove. May need to look at this Delta and compare prices and quality.

Doing the basement and my framing is already up though. Wood frames on tar paper. Can I still get this delta and lay it flush against the frame? Scared that it will evacuate moisture directly towards the wood frame..

Same. If your planning to DIY, Dricore is a great option. Much easier to maneuver than a large OSB board.

I used Dricore on my basement and I totally recommend.
