Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify and list some of the common flooring failures caused by moisture movement due to improper design, placement, and curing of the concrete.
  2. Describe the impacts of these flooring failures on human health, materials and labor costs, and delays and scheduling conflicts as remediation occurs.
  3. Discuss how improper water/cement ratio, mix design, placement, finishing, and curing can impact the moisture levels in concrete.
  4. Restate the importance of communication among all parties involved in flooring installation so that unhealthy, unsafe, and costly flooring failures can be prevented.

This course provides an overview of the considerations for specifying concrete to receive floor coverings, with guidance on proper specification of concrete mix design, placement, and curing methods to secure a warranted floor covering system for the project. Special emphasis on the environmental concerns of product choice application technique and time savings are combined in a systems approach for improved overall concrete placement.
