Concrete Pouring

Moisture levels can stress a project just as much as temperature. Overly dry concrete pouring can lead to rapid moisture evaporation. Overly moist concrete pouring can affect the texture and hardness of your slab and increase chances of cracking. The weather can add unpredictable variables into a project’s timeline without the proper precautions.

Pouring concrete in extremely hot weather can result in:

  • Concrete shrinkage
  • Cracking of the slab
  • Curing too quickly
  • Concrete strength reduction

Pouring concrete during extremely cold weather may lead to:

  • Weaker concrete
  • Unstable concrete slabs
  • Longer setting time
Temporary Humidity Control

Too much moisture leads to fungus, which in itself is harmful. Fungus and other types of rot are also great food for corrosive insects.

Construction Site floods

The fluctuation in moisture can cause shrinkage in drywall and framing which in turn may eventually lead to nail pops and cracks. Excessive moisture can cause wood to rot and swell leading to loosening of nails and fastenings. When the lumber used in framing fluctuates in moisture it may shrink causing ​nail pops.

Plaster can be heavily compromised by water and cause cracks that are not only unsightly but can result in further complications down the road. Floods can even be detrimental to your foundation.

Drying Wood Floors

Water is a major threat wood flooring due to the danger of structural damage and mold growth. It is important to react quickly to increase the chances of saving the floor.

Drywall Drying

Moisture-related problems are some of the most common reasons for delayed construction schedules and increased project costs. Humidity has a detrimental effect on drywall materials because it readily absorbs and retains moisture. This can cause drywall to shrink, grow mold, and crack.
