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.

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.
