Partner Profile: STEGO

by A.H. Harris

For A.H. Harris, one of our greatest accomplishments as a company is the strong relationships we have built with our vendors. Within our 40 locations, our branches have established connections with various companies that create many business opportunities. We want our construction community to learn more about our vendors and let them share their story.

Featured in this blog, we put the spotlight on Stego Industries, the leader in below-slab moisture vapor protection. Stego Industries has recently launched Beast™ Screed, a patent pending, fixed-elevation, point-to-point guide screed system that allows you to maintain floor levelness during the screeding operation.  Beast Screed was named “Industry Choice” by Concrete Construction magazine in the 2016 World of Concrete Most Innovative Product Awards in the Slab Tools/Equipment & Materials category. A.H. Harris offers our congratulations on this achievement and we look forward to our ongoing partnership.

Northeast Regional Director for Stego Industries, Mark Prosser, gave us more information on the history of the company and their vapor barrier products and accessories.  Let’s hear it from Mark.

Stego Industries brought Stego Wrap Vapor Barrier to the industry in 1998. Our products are protecting billions of square feet throughout North America and beyond. The Stego team strives to provide product availability and technical support that is second to none. We know that projects can move quickly and you depend on accurate information and timely delivery.

EPA mandated water-based adhesive products, new energy codes, and the growing liability for mold and contaminants have forced the building industry to re-evaluate, and switch to cost-effective, solution-oriented products which will help control moisture, moisture vapor, radon gas and other contaminants. Stego Wrap helps eliminate major moisture sources that can lead to flooring failures, poor indoor air quality, and delayed construction schedules.

Stego Industries recognizes the complex and controversial nature of these moisture/contaminant-related problems facing architects, engineers, flooring installers, contractors and building owners. We are dedicated to providing innovative solutions and the highest level of customer support possible. Our goal is your complete satisfaction.

Stego Wrap Vapor Barrier (15-mil) is a low permeance under-slab vapor barrier engineered to exceed ASTM E1745 Class A Standards and provide long-term moisture vapor protection. Stego has the accessories you need to complete an ASTM E1643-compliant installation.  Stego® TapeStego MasticStego Crete Claw® Tape and StegoTack® Tape enable efficient vapor barrier installations, saving time and resources.

Our company is a leader in industry education. Stego Industries provides thousands of continuing educational programs (AIA approved) each year. We will be pleased to share our expertise with you, as well as to help you reliably address any aspect of our products’ selection, location and installation.

Stego Wrap has become the most widely specified Vapor Barrier in the United States by earning the respect, trust and recommendation from the design and construction community.

If you’d like any additional information about how to protect flooring from moisture related flooring failures, we would be more than happy to have a quick chat over the phone.
