Understanding Moisture Issues

Moisture from Above

Moisture from sources such as rain, sprinklers, and condensation can affect concrete surfaces. It’s crucial to address these surface moisture issues to prevent damage to the coatings.

Moisture from Below

Moisture from below the concrete surface is another significant concern. All concrete contains moisture, but excessive moisture can lead to coating failures. We use a Tramex moisture meter to test moisture levels and ensure they are within acceptable limits before applying coatings.

Mitigating Moisture Issues

Identifying and Testing for Moisture

Our process includes thorough moisture testing during initial assessments and on the day of installation. Accurate readings help prevent future coating failures due to excessive moisture.

Moisture Mitigation Systems

When we detect high moisture levels, we use moisture mitigation systems. Our latest product allows us to apply a moisture barrier quickly and efficiently, reducing the overall project timeline.

Dealing with Excess Moisture

Addressing High Moisture Levels

If we find high moisture levels, we apply a moisture mitigation system to prevent problems such as peeling and delamination. This step ensures the longevity and durability of the coatings.

Cost Implications

Applying a moisture barrier incurs additional costs. We aim to be transparent in our quoting process and inform customers about any unexpected moisture issues that may arise during installation.

Ensuring Safety and Slip Resistance

Non-Porous Top Coats

Our non-porous top coats prevent moisture penetration and ensure that surfaces remain safe and slip-resistant. However, wet surfaces are naturally more slippery, so we take additional measures to enhance safety.

Slip Resistance Additives

We use Gator bite and silica sand to improve slip resistance, meeting ADA standards. This ensures that our coated surfaces are safe for all users.

Post-Installation Slip Issues

If slip issues arise after installation, we can address them by adding additional slip-resistant coatings. Our team is well-trained to handle any post-installation issues, ensuring customer satisfaction.
