loor protection from ongoing construction activity should
be from wall to wall. Tape protection should be at the seams
and NOT to the wood floor surface. NFCA Floor Covering
Reference/Specification Manual states, "Installed flooring
shall be protected with heavy Kraft-paper or other suitable
covering as recommended by the flooring manufacturer.
Do not use non-breathable sheet or film that could cause
condensation to form. This covering must be maintained throughout the
remainder of construction period. The overall responsibility for the protection
of all installed flooring, from completion of work until the Owner's take-over, is
the responsibility of the General Contractor. The flooring contractor will not be
able to control the work or actions of on-site workers, or the actions of persons
causing damage from setting-up or delivering equipment, furniture, or other
items to the site." www.floorcoveringreferencemanual.com

CONCRETE DRY TIMES, RULE OF THUMB
NFCA Floor Covering Installation Standards state: New concrete
substrates must be properly cured and thoroughly dry before
commencement of any flooring installation. As curing depends on such
things as the environmental conditions, location of the slab and the time of
year, substrate surfaces may require more drying time than normal before
they may be considered ready for moisture testing. While curing to design
strength typically takes 7 to 28 days, drying time for floor coverings can
take many months. Allow a minimum 1 month of dry time per 1" of concrete
thickness. Knowing this a year in advance helps the planning process.
Finding out a month from project completion when the floor contractor is
scheduled to start work is bad news for all involved. www.nfca.ca
