How 'dry' do you think a concrete slab has to be for a successful loose-lay installation of Tarkett Fiberfloor? I know the manufacturer's guidelines about moisture vapor emissions and I know from experience what to expect with excessive moisture, but any anecdotal stories you have to share about failed installs due to high moisture?

RE: FiberFloor

We use air-step (any of the three types) loose lay styled on concrete quite regularly. We have never had on fail and we do not check for moisture. They all say take a calcium chloride test prior....but we never do. Never had one fail. I am sure it will happen tomorrow now that I have made this statement. Good Luck!
