Campaign Targets How to Save Hundreds of Millions Each Year in Flooring Projects Gone Awry
Rogue River, Oregon – April 16, 2015 – www.AIAspec.com (an initiative of Wagner Meters, the world’s leading manufacturer of moisture meters) announced today an important new educational campaign that’s intended to help architects, engineers, and others in the building industry.
“Over the years, we’ve seen too many architects and engineers suffer catastrophic flooring failures on their projects simply because they specified an unreliable method to test moisture levels in concrete,” says Jason Spangler, Spokesperson for AIAspec.com. “It’s important that people understand what the latest science reveals about concrete moisture testing.”
AIAspec.com has put together several new educational resources, each specifically designed to help architects and engineers avoid the significant project delays, costly repairs, and even lawsuits that can occur because of mold, mildew, buckles, blisters, discoloration, de-bonding and other moisture related problems.
AIAspec.com is making all of its new resources available free of charge, including:
- A one-hour AIA-approved course, led by Howard Kanare, a nationally recognized expert specializing in the interaction of concrete floors and floor coverings.
- A detailed report that explains how to choose among the many available methods for testing moisture in concrete.
- A series of short videos about the latest science, clearly showing why many moisture test methods can lead to inaccurate or misleading results.
The one-hour course, Moisture Testing of Concrete Floor Slabs, which architects and others can take online for one full credit through AIA Continuing Education, forms the centerpiece of AIAspec.com’s educational campaign.
“When architects complete the course,” says Jason Spangler, “they’ll be armed with exactly the information they need to know when it comes to specifying moisture testing in concrete slabs. Without question, it will serve as a valuable resource for many people.”
