Preparing Sub-Floor Slabs That Have Been Submerged for a New Flooring System.
Mother Nature holds nothing back when it comes to storms.
It can sometimes take years for people to recover from hurricanes and tropical storms and the resulting flooding. Some of the most difficult installation challenges arise in the wake of natural disasters. And when water is present, these projects must be approached carefully and sys- tematically. If not, subsequent failure is highly likely.
The general rule of thumb is: no two restoration projects are the same. Each project must be inspected and dealt with according to individual circumstances. This issue of Starlog highlights some of the considerations of installing commercial flooring on slabs that have been submerged. For any of the following steps, Starnet Members are here to help.
