Many times, NST is called into either an existing facility or a refurbishment where petroleum, cooking fats, grease, sewage or other contaminants have contaminated the floor. NST refinishing systems eliminate these issues, restoring the slab to a useable condition..
Placing tile or hardwoods over concrete floors requires a very flat surface. Often, the floor is not flat and requires additional materials to self level these areas. NST has installed over 20 million feet of leveling underlayments…we are capable of placing any size project.
Moisture in concrete is not necessarily a bad thing as concrete can take up 50 years to fully cure. Rising moisture vapor, however, is a frequent concern. When it exists, it must be addressed or subsequent floor coverings will fail. NST has completed many moisture mitigation installations utilizing the most well known products in the industry.

Light Weight Self-Leveling Underlayment was the need at CHSS in Columbia, SC when the application of over 2.5″ of SLU was required to level out the elevated floors and eliminate the deflection in the concrete structure.
NST was able to check the contamination levels in the concrete and prescribe a warranted solution to solve all of the customers needs and requirements. When we were done renovating the interior substrate of the old maintenance building the owner was pleasantly surprised with “the flattest floors we have ever seen.”
