Twenty years of leadership and innovation in concrete slab moisture testing
The prevalence of moisture-related flooring problems in new construction has led many design firms, contractors, and building owners to view moisture mitigation not as a contingency, but a necessity.
IFTI developed a Risk Management System that allows you to cost-effectively reduce your risk.
150 Years Of Experience In The Industry
The moisture testing professionals at IFTI know that any design team, building owner, or contractor that chooses to omit moisture testing from the construction schedule is committing a serious error. In fact, the prevalence of moisture-related flooring problems in new construction has led many design firms, contractors, and building owners to view moisture mitigation not as a contingency, but a necessity.
Please find below case studies that describe IFTI’s success stories.
New Construction – Fitness Gym
Within a month of a flooring installation at a new Fitness Center, the tenants were experiencing moisture-related flooring problems.
The owner of the building called an all-hands meeting with the construction team to find out why the floor failed, and who was responsible. Everyone who had been involved pointed fingers at the others, including the architect, general contractor, and flooring installer. To get a third-party, unbiased opinion, they called IFTI to conduct a forensic floor analysis to determine what happened and why.
New Construction – Housewares Chain
A moisture-related evaluation of the concrete sub-floor prior to the installation of flooring is a requirement of every major manufacturer of flooring material.
Our client is a major housewares chain with 1,180 stores throughout North America and retails spaces of approximately 30,000 sq. ft. per space.
A corporate executive contacted IFTI to perform moisture testing as a part of their new store rollout. The client has experienced a lack of moisture testing information, fluctuating costs and no recommendations if moisture was detected.
Based on the reports, the contractor was able to cross-reference the specifications with IFTI’s moisture test data to verify that the treatment solution for each location was appropriate based on the data.
The expert solutions provided by IFTI saved the client thousands of dollars in mitigation costs per location, and at the same time, freed the Construction Manager’s time, since IFTI’s team took responsibility for recommending the appropriate treatment solution for each location.
IFTI has developed a concrete floor moisture testing program for commercial remodel projects that has been specifically designed to provide you with the information you need.
Client: A major retail chain with 1,200 stores and 15,000 sq. ft. of retail space.
The flooring contractors were conducting moisture testing and providing change orders for moisture mitigation. The customer had experienced an increase to 4 out of 5 of their stores requiring moisture mitigation. The customer felt they were unnecessarily over-mitigating which cost them additional time and money, and sought a better solution. The retail executive contacted IFTI to perform concrete floor moisture testing as a part of their remodel program.
