How can I tell if I need subfloor work?
When you look at the floor, if it looks uneven, or there are dips in the floor, you may need subfloor work. A floor which crunches when you walk on it or feels hollow also may be a sign subfloor work is needed. The best way to tell is to have an experienced professional assess the situation and make a recommendation for repairing the floor with properly graded materials which will withstand repeated traffic.
We have vinyl tile on our floor now, and it's bubbling and warping. How can I tell if I have a moisture problem and what do I do with that information?
Moisture is a leading cause of failed resilient flooring. Even a new concrete slab can emit mositure. We recommend performing a moisture test, and if you have a moisture issue, we can help to bring the moisture pressure to acceptable levels.
