Hello Everyone - I was trying to anchor some pressure treated wood to my basement slab (home built 1965) for the base of a bar. I was planning to use Tapcons & Loctite PL. The other day I put down the wood with the PL and a day later I noticed it hadn't stayed in place. I believe the primary reason is because there is a layer of mastic & carpet glue adhesive on the floor, and the PL bound to the mastic and separated it from the concrete slab (you can see that in the pic). So I pulled up the wood today to scrape off the PL where I could and noticed a lot of moisture on one side and this has me concerned. Could this be from the pressure treated wood ? My slab has been exposed for a long time and I have done moisture tests and have never had an issue with moisture from the slab - The pressure treated wood was wet when I put it down and it's pretty dry now, so I'm not sure if the slab extracted the water from the wood or what ? Anyone have any thoughts? Not sure if this should be in the flooring forum. Thanks in advance.
