January 15th Chapter Meeting

Moisture in Concrete Symposium
Moisture emissions from concrete slabs cost our industry one billion dollars per year. In this session you will learn where the moisture comes from, what kinds of problems it causes, how to properly quantify how much moisture is present. The symposium will take you through the issues you need to address from a specification and concrete placement standpoint and drying, and also offer recommendations on how to remediate should excessive emissions be present at the time the floor covering is to be installed.
