“I don’t un­der­stand why the floorslab is so thin. The un­der­floor heat­ing was in­stalled just to con­ceal the build­ing’s low qual­ity.”

A lo­cal res­i­dent sur­named Wang re­cently pur­chased an ac­ces­sorized apart­ment in Baoshan dis­trict which in­cluded an un­der­floor heat­ing sys­tem. How­ever, he re­moved it and planned to cover the floorslab with sim­ple solid wood floor­ing. But the floorslab was so thin that the nails pen­e­trated di­rectly into his down­stairs neigh­bor’s apart­ment. Wang be­lieves the fancy heat­ing sys­tem was just to dis­guise the over­all shoddy con­struc­tion. Lo­cal au­thor­i­ties are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the mat­ter.
