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. What happens beneath and above a floor matters, in ways that aren’t always anticipated or well understood.

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.
