Hello Matthew,

Thank you for posting the link to the article on "Where to place the vapor 
retarder".  It was interesting to read the cases for the two conditions.  I 
 helped me think about weather conditions in the east a bit more.  Where I 
mostly practice, we get less than 12 inches of rain a year and it's mostly 
in the winter months, when concrete work is almost non-existent due to 
costs to heat the base before placement and during the curing of the 

The article did leave me wondering about the best way to determine when a 
slab can be placed directly on the base or native soil with no barrier.

liked Misters Suprenant and Malisch to have covered that a little more.
