Yes it is applied hot, and you do need a different pot than what the felt roofers use.
Maybe the Pilgrims forgot to take one on the boat

Hello All :-) I've gotten so much information that I'm now confused??? Should I put something on the Slab to bring down the 25% moisture reading?? Or should I just put down carpet with a pad that does not have a moisture barrier on it? Then the carpet over it. This house had carpet on the Slab for 15 years, and when pulled up it had no mold??? Just a lot of white salt on the slab?? Is letting the carpet breath the only solution??? Tks, Bob
