Interior & Exterior Concrete Slabs

Flaking or scaling of exterior concrete slabs most often results from salts and de-icers being applied to the concrete surface either intentionally for ice melting or unintentionally from road salt falling off cars. Cleaning salt deposits off concrete surfaces is normal home maintenance. Surface deterioration due to owner-applied substances, improper maintenance, or normal wear and tear is excluded from the statutory warranty

Concrete floor slabs naturally crack during curing due to shrinkage. Cracks resulting from normal shrinkage of materials caused by drying after construction are excluded from the statutory warranty.

Moisture on basement concrete floor surfaces may be caused by capillary transport of water or condensation of water vapour on cold surfaces. Condensation is most common in the late spring and summer when concrete surfaces are cooler and the humidity in the outside air is high. Home owners should immediately reduce the moisture levels in the basement air to prevent damage to property. Moisture levels in the air can be reduced by using a dehumidifier, increasing the amount of ventilation to the area, and running an air conditioner. Damage caused by dampness or condensation due to failure by the homeowner to maintain adequate ventilation is excluded from the statutory warranty.
