Floor Waterproofing Investigations

Commercial Flooring Waterproofing In Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont

Floor Waterproofing Inspections Throughout New England

Imagine you’re an apartment complex manager in Boston. You arrive for work one morning, park in your usual spot and then you see it — mold growing on the concrete floor.

Mold is only one of many indications that your floor waterproofing measures may no longer prevent structural damage. Other signs of failing waterproofing include:

  • Warping: The surface curls either concavely or convexly, creating dips or bulges.
  • Scaling: The surface is flaking or peeling.
  • Discoloration: Rust stains, in particular, can indicate that moisture has reached the reinforcing steel supports.
  • Delamination: Wood floors that bubble or peel may need delamination repair.

Rest assured that the specially trained experts at Vital Structures LLC can help. We’ll prepare a comprehensive solution to treat the underlying cause, not just the symptoms, with a thorough review and floor moisture testing. Vital Structures identifies the root of the issue to complete the job right the first time.

Investigation Scope

Floor moisture mitigation begins with a complete examination of any irregularities you’ve noticed in your flooring. Public safety is the most significant concern, so your Vital Structures engineer will observe the evidence you noted and assess the level of any potential threats. During the initial investigation, the engineer also searches for additional signs of structural compromise.

Whether your floor coating waterproofing is failing or other structural challenges like ground shift are in play, you’ll receive an honest and transparent assessment from Vital Structures. The inspection informs required testing procedures and is the basis of a successful resolution.

Testing Procedures

After the foundational inspection, we’ll begin testing on the irregularities. Vital Structures uses a variety of techniques designed to identify and diagnose the cause of the issue, including:

  • Material testing: We appraise the performance of specific materials to determine if deterioration has occurred.
  • Field testing: We observe the performance of your materials in your unique environment to establish their continued value.
  • Destructive testing: We push material to the failure point to recognize precisely what’s not performing and the circumstances that create the issue.

Vital Structures uses in-depth forensic analysis based on the data we gather through testing to develop your customized solution.

Once we’ve identified the cause of the moisture issue, Vital Structures develops a comprehensive resolution plan designed to resolve the challenge entirely. You deserve more than stopgap measures.
