This course will discuss moisture in concrete slabs and solutions to end slab moisture issues such as flooring failures, mold, warping or curling, and excessive drying times. One solution to these moisture related problems is utilizing a rapid drying concrete. Rapid Drying Concrete is a ready-mix concrete solution for preventing moisture-related floor covering failures, an industry-wide problem that costs millions of dollars annually in damage, downtime, repair and replacement.
