Concrete slab moisture is a significant factor to consider when selecting a floor coating or covering. Some coating systems are not tolerant of high moisture in the concrete. Similarly, many adhesives used for carpets, laminates and tile used today are not as tolerant of high moisture content in the concrete slab as their predecessors a decade ago. Stains and dyes used with polished concrete are also affected by high moisture content. Accordingly, specifiers must consider moisture content when designing a floor coating or covering. The moisture content of the slab will influence selection of materials used.
