Why You Will Surely Regret Ignoring Concrete Moisture Mitigation

Posted by ARIDUS Rapid Drying Concrete on Jan 26, 2017 11:15:00 AM

When starting a project, you have to worry about the logistics of setting sub-contractors to work — often before the design for said project is finalized. It’s imperative, though, that you don’t ignore one of the critical components of construction that will severely impact your timeline and bottom line. Moisture mitigation takes many forms, some more effective than others, but it's necessary that you have some method of response to excess moisture in concrete slabs.

How Concrete Moisture Can Derail Fast Track Construction

Posted by ARIDUS Rapid Drying Concrete on Jan 23, 2017 8:00:00 AM

Though concrete moisture generally poses a threat in any construction context, it is especially problematic when a construction timeline is compressed. Fast track construction inherently has its fair share of advantages, speed to market and potentially lower overhead costs, to name a few, but does magnify the risk of flooring damage if concrete slab moisture precautions aren’t taken seriously. There is less tolerance for time delays between concrete and flooring installation, but designers, contractors and owners that are aware of the problem from the beginning are in a better position to execute a problem-free project.

Over the past 25 years, moisture-related problems with floor coverings and coatings have been one of the most frequent, costly, and troublesome problems faced by owners, general contractors, project managers and flooring installers. The problems stem from the inability of conventional concrete mixtures to dry to the moisture level required by the manufacturers of the flooring materials within the time allowed by the project schedule.

Moisture Mitigation: Excess Concrete Moisture Warning Signs

Posted by ARIDUS Rapid Drying Concrete on Jan 10, 2017 8:00:00 AM

When proper moisture mitigation precautions aren’t taken, or occasionally, even when they are, there’s a good chance your facility’s foundation or flooring could be compromised. There’s a reason concrete moisture mitigation exists on such a massive scale, and it’s because millions of dollars are at risk if excess moisture is left unchecked. We cover some of the early warning signs that, despite all efforts, excess concrete moisture could be an issue.

How Construction Design Impacts Speed to Market

Posted by ARIDUS Rapid Drying Concrete on Jan 3, 2017 8:00:00 AM

The benefits of fast tracking a project are attractive to say the least. Successful fast track construction gives owners an edge by allowing them to enter a target market sooner, launching immediate revenue streams and a chance to beat potential competitors to the punch. If, and this is an important if, a fast-track project can limit its mistakes so costs don’t match or surpass the savings from an accelerated construction schedule, fast track construction would certainly be worth the trouble
