June Happy Hour/Slab Vapor Protection DiscussionOpen in a New Window

 

Sponsored by Stego Industries, LLC
 
The presentation by Stego Industries provides an in-depth look at below-slab moisture and vapor protection. The seminar will examine how below-slab water vapor migration has become the leading cause of floor failures, as well as potential contributor to mold growth, efflorescence, and other building envelope concerns. Moreover, the seminar is designed to update attendees on current standards and recommendations from ASTM, ACI, and PCA, as well as flooring and concrete experts from the industry. Questions about vapor retarders vs. vapor barriers, the use of poly/visqueen, the location of the vapor barrier, radon gas, sustainability, crawlspaces, etc. will all be addressed. 

Stego Industries, LLC is involved in the research, design, development, production and marketing of proactive moisture solutions for use in various construction-related applications. Stego Wrap has become the most widely specified vapor barrier in the United States by earning the respect, trust and recommendation from the design and construction community.
