This workshop provides an in-depth look at below-slab moisture protection. It will examine how below-slab water vapor migration has become the leading cause of floor failures and a very real contributor to mold/mildew growth in the United States. Moreover, the workshop is designed to update attendees on current standards and recommendations from ASTM, ACI, and PCA, as well as flooring and concrete experts from the industry. Questions about vapor retarders vs. vapor barriers, the use of poly/visqueen, the location of the vapor barrier, radon gas, concrete moisture testing, concrete drying, installation, and product sustainability will all be addressed as well.
