Concrete and Masonry Waterproofing Benefits Explained
For all types of stone or brickworks, we have waterproof coating and sealers that will not only prevent water from being retained and degrade the structure, but will also prevent bacterial growth and microbial activities. They are also capable of resisting wind-driven rain and freezing / thawing, are permeable to water vapor, and do not trap moisture below the surface of such stoneworks. Apart from that, we also make sure that all the corners around your windows, expansion joints and other sensitive areas are completely sealed.
Sealing Brick and Masonry Advantages
It is necessary that your brickwork and masonry of your commercial or residential space receive the respective sealing so that it can last for decades. However, you may have doubts as to whether it will maintain its regular appearance.
Do not worry about it, since the sealants that we use will not affect it. After application, the sealant will:
- Prevent efflorescence
- Reduce moisture penetration
- Limit mildew growth
- Protect from de-icing salt attack
- Reduces spalling
Flexible and DurableIf you need any exterior waterproofing with opaque finishes, we can do it by using elastomeric coatings. These films, apart from being flexible and durable, can cover even the smallest of cracks and thus protect concrete, stucco and masonry from the elements. We also use a siloxane sealer in case the brick or block surfaces on the outside need a good finish.
Environmentally ResponsibleThe products we use are characterized by being low in VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and do not produce hazardous waste.
UV StableThe waterproofing products that we use in our work will not break over time or fade when exposed to the sun.
