Austin Stained Concrete and More addresses your flooring needs while we look for ways to solve future issues. We ensure our work covers moisture remediation and floor leveling, by removing and prepping every floor surface properly. We take our time to create the best possible floor while hoping to prevent any future problems down the line. Our work is of the highest standard.
We test your concrete for moisture content and vapor emission prior to installation. Any moisture present can result in adhesive failures, mold buildup, or mildew growth, which ultimately can lead to product delaminating, curling and or bubbling
The testing method used for moisture is ASTM F1869 to check for calcium chloride and ASTM F2170 to check for relative humidity. These tests measure moisture emitted and contained in the concrete. The test takes approximately 60-72 hours and requires the environment to remain at 75°F (± 10°F) with a relative humidity of 50% (± 10%) for 48 hours prior to and during each test.
Our product and installation warranties require a minimal moisture content, contamination, and emission levels to be maintained before, during, and after installation and if these conditions aren’t met, then your warranty is voided. Because of this we work to ensure there are no moisture problems.
