If you are running your a/c it won't matter and you won't even see it, right?

This spring, slabs were sweating like crazy as we went from cold temps to hot temps overnight.

Putting a lot of rock under it will help, as will a vapor barrier and/or insulation.

Keeping the doors closed will do the most good, as this will allow the building to heat up slowly.

It's just difficult to run a lot a of warm, wet air over an ice-cold surface and not expect it to pull the water out of the air.
