US Exterior Maintenance and Repair
The waterproofing of building walls is a complicated and complex process. Buildings are designed and built without input from a waterproofing specialist and can be doomed to endure years of water intrusion problems. Older buildings are often in need of constant upkeep to prevent water migration to the interior. This could be due to inadequate flashing systems, poor drainage and weep systems or materials that have deteriorated over time. This water intrusion will damage interior finishes, further degrade the exterior substrate, adversely effect living or working conditions and these, in turn, will diminish the value of the property.
Waterproofing techniques and materials differ substantially depending upon the type of construction and the substrate that is to be waterproofed. There is a large variety of facade building components on the market each having specific repair materials and products.
