Tip #176. Do homebuilders use preventive measures to minimize water vapor penetration damage to flooring?

It is best to consult with the homebuilder and a certified foundation repair specialist prior to the construction stage to ensure all preventive measures have been applied according to local ordinances. Some homebuilders will only include basic protection to pouring foundations, basement walls, and concrete slabs. More details are available on pre-construction recommendations.
