If you are “the management” of one of these buildings, take a few minutes to read the following. It could save your group tens of thousands dollars and hours upon hours of “people relation” problems.
Today, the upper floors of many of these buildings are crumbling beneath the feet of the residents. The original material used to cover wooden subfloors is typically gypsum based, lightweight concrete. Originally designed for sound and temperature regulation, this product has been breaking up and unraveling at an accelerated rate. Unchecked, it will continue to expand and cause serious health hazards and building deterioration.
“This is news to me” you may be thinking. If it is, let me offer you a suggestion. As a manager you might want to take a survey. Draw up a form asking three questions and submit them to residents or building tenants.
Is the flooring in high traffic areas loose or lifting?
Can you feel and see an uneven or “crumbled”
Is there a slight moving sensation when walking through the structure? Once again, specifically high traffic areas.
Is there a pattern? Are some of the positive reports in the same building?
Are they of the same type of problem?
Contact the occupants who have reported a significant flooring problem and ask for an appointment to inspect the floor. If the subfloor is deteriorating, chalking, and/or cracking, or if the tiles in the kitchen or bathrooms are separating, splitting, or are uneven, you have a decision to make.
The decision should be a permanent and guaranteed system of repair and resurfacing. One that is simple and easy to apply. One that causes little inconvenience to the occupants. One that has proven results. One that is cost effective.
Before spending any money or taking any action, there is a state of the art system you need to know about.
