Gluing down the various materials used in tilt-up construction offers several major pluses over drilling and nailing down. One of those is reducing worker fatigue and strain. Another is maintaining the structural integrity of the slab, moisture barriers and other structures. All those represent potential cost factors for the job.
But perhaps the most significant advantage is the dramatic time savings and efficiencies that can be achieved by gluing down.
As they say, the proof is in the numbers. Below is a calculator to help you determine the comparative time involved with installing materials using adhesives vs. nails. We invite you to use it on your next tilt-up project to determine just how much of a difference that choice can make.
