Concrete slabs can emit large quantities of moisture, making it difficult or impossible for proper bonding of flooring good. Moisture mitigation/remediation is a viable remedy to excessive moisture emission. GBL can properly prepare a concrete slab, apply the moisture mitigation coating, and pour the required topping of self-leveling product in as little as a few days. Some products offered by GBL are approved for 100% RH readings.

Sound-Mat

Underlayment

Sound Attenuation

Sound insulating systems greatly reduce impact noise transfer between floors and stop flanking sound. This can be extremely important in the construction of multi-family buildings, hotels/motels, and dormitories. The system consists of the installation of a sound mat onto the floor, a perimeter isolation material is installed around the seam between floor and wall, and then a topping of gypsum underlayment is poured. Generally, LevelRock 2500 is the preferred underlayment to be used, however is not a requirement. Many other underlayments that GBL offer will work.
