Addressing issues with concrete slab moisture is a never-ending topic in the flooring installation industry. You can say that Dean Craft, president and CEO of ISE Logik, is an expert on the topic. In his doctoral dissertation titled, The Fallacy of Current Industry Approach to Assessing Concrete Moisture before Flooring Installation, Craft’s research took him back nearly 50 years, to some of the industry’s earliest traces of concrete moisture-related issues. Based on his research, Craft is challenging us to look at new ways to address this hot topic.
