Flooring Problems

Flooring in commercial and residential buildings can have a variety of problems, from moldy carpets to debonded vinyl tiles to movement in wood flooring. Understanding the causes and solutions of these problems involves understanding the building as a system.

The articles in this section examine a range of building practices and materials – and the interactions between them – that can lead to flooring problems and solutions.
