Sealant Replacement

Got leaks? Water intrusion is more than an inconvenience for property owners and tenants. Left unchecked, it can damage structural elements and shorten the useful life of buildings, parking garages, and plaza decks.

Masonry Restoration

The materials that give masonry structures their character and beauty are vulnerable to age, moisture, pollutants, building movement, and deferred maintenance.

Parking Garage Restoration

An ineffective maintenance routine on a parking structure can quickly lead to costly repairs and restorations that can be disruptive to tenants and cause unexpected costs and safety concerns.

Waterproofing & Coatings

From below grade waterproofing to deck coatings to roof coatings, any waterproofing system is only as effective as the caliber of installation.

Concrete Restoration

Concrete is economical and durable — the backbone of modern construction. But time, water, and weather take their toll and diminish its strength.

Historical Restoration

We can restore the exterior features regardless of composition or age without damaging either the building or its historical charm.

Practically every building requires caulking and sealants to prevent water from reaching interior spaces.

Caulking and sealants are not only the most commonly used waterproofing materials, but they’re also the most incorrectly used. This quick cheat sheet will help you decode any jargon you encounter for caulking and sealants.
