Removing Concrete Moisture from the Construction Process

Jerry DeWitt, Western Gulf States Regional Manager
with Barrier One, Inc. 


Thursday, March 12, 2015

Racquet Club at 5111 Sanderlin Ave

5:30p social, 6:00 dinner, 7:00 program



This presentation will provide an in-depth examination of the epidemic issue of new construction concrete slabs not being able to pass flooring and roofing field moisture testing guidelines in today’s compressed building cycle.

As well as the ramification of such, which equates to an additional and often unbudgeted, expensive, disruptive, and time consuming moisture mitigation systems.

The presentation will show that the root cause is embedded in the current flawed process for assessing slab moisture prior to final slab covering and is entrenched by the mistaken beliefs that:

 (1) new slabs can actually pass such tests within the construction schedule,

(2) and should the slabs pass, that a warranty against a future moisture failure is conveyed.

The presentation reviews the magnitude of the problem, discusses the various causes, and offers proactive solutions that enable project teams to remove concrete moisture from the construction process effectively, efficiently and with liability being truly mitigated.
