(the real objective is anti floor covering industry to drive spec writers to polished / stained concrete - but flooring people are too busy fighting for table scraps)

Anyway it is valid. But always remember that moisture movement does NOT mean that it is still not a wonderful environment for mold.

I'm just glad I do residential. I never appreciated spec writers, architects and GC's who don't understand moisture issues.

The adhesive would be affected by the alkalinity over time."



I understood what he said but that applies to anything really.
