At ECO Roofing & Waterproofing, we have a reputation for quality work like Damp proofing. When it comes to industrial buildings, commercial offices or your home, if it has to be done right it needs to be done by ECO Roofing!
Depending on the situation we employ various methods, either chemical damp proofing or damp proofing membrane systems. Either Damp proofing methods are reliable.
Caulking & Sealants
Above-grade waterproofing with caulking and sealants is a structure’s first line of defence against the elements. Caulking and Sealant products used are specifically for the protection that is needed.
Effective cleaning of masonry on building exteriors is critical for two reasons, it enhances the overall appearance of the building and it removes the source of potentially damaging elements. Building cleaning methods include pressurized applications of water, chemicals, wet aggregate and soda blasting.
Epoxy Injection is a bonding process used to repair a wide variety of concrete and masonry structures. The material not only fills cracks, but welds them together structurally with an epoxy that is forced through the crack under pressure and forms a bond that is stronger that the concrete itself.
Chemical grouts are materials which mix readily with water at the time of application. As such, chemical grout provides good penetration of wet joints, cracks and surrounding soil. Chemical grout reacts with the water to form a solid waterproof & damp proof barrier, stopping the water that is infiltrating the building or structure.
Expansion Joint Systems
Expansion and control joints are incorporated into a structure to accommodate expansion and contraction forces. Restoring expansion joint integrity is essential to the entire structure. Whenever joints are damaged, deteriorated or improperly sealed, eventually expansion joint systems fail to perform their intended mission.
Repointing is the process of replacing deteriorated mortar between masonry units. Once the old mortar is removed mechanically or by hand, fresh mortar is placed into joint cavity and then the joint is tooled.
Most stucco deterioration is the result of water infiltration into the building structure, either through the roof, around chimneys, window and door openings, or excessive ground water or moisture penetrating through, or splashing up from the foundation.
ECO Roofing & Waterproofing can determine the cause of deterioration and make any necessary repairs to the building before repairing the stucco. Such work is likely to include repairs designed to keep excessive water away from the stucco, such as roof, gutter, downspout and flashing repairs, improving drainage, and redirecting rainwater runoff and splash-back away from the building.
Parking Deck Restoration
Parking garages are significant investments that require care and maintenance. Each Parking garage is an integration of components functioning together as one. All systems must be in good repair in order to maximize the life of the structure. Restoration and waterproofing are key elements to extending the life of parking decks and parking garages.
Elastomeric coating is a thick, rubberized paint product relatively high in acrylic content. Generally water-based, it creates a waterproof membrane between stucco or masonry substrate and outside elements. With 300% elasticity, this coating can bridge cracks up to 1/8″ wide when applied properly.
This system employs a bitumen membrane of varying thickness. Ideal for use on concrete roofs, basements, cellars and parapet walls.
Board and Torch
This system is ideal for zinc / IBR roofs with little or no pitch. A masonite board is attached to roof sheeting and thereafter a waterproof torch-on system is applied.
