Problem Solving Forum (7)


How can you determine the moisture content of a concrete block (CMU) wall, and how can you judge when the moisture level is sufficiently low to paint?


If the walls of single-wythe CMU with core fill insulation become saturated, can they be adequately dried out for painting? If so, how?


What is an acceptable level of moisture in concrete walls before painting with an acrylic system, and how should the moisture level be measured?


What are the common moisture tests for vertical, below-grade concrete structures scheduled to receive a high-build, protective lining system?


When is it necessary to install sealant between the base of building walls and concrete sidewalks or pavement to prevent moisture from wicking up the wall? How does the climate affect this decision?


What is the optimal moisture content for masonry before painting can begin?


When moisture permeates concrete slabs or walls below grade, how can this problem be solved and does it require excavation?
