Your Guide to Commercial Waterproofing
When it comes to the maintenance of your commercial building, you can only trust it in the hands of professionals. At Restoration Technologies Inc., we understand the importance of protecting your assets. Failure to invest time into waterproofing your building can lead to leaks and water damage.
Contact Contractors With Experience
Every waterproofing project deserves experienced contractors. The more experience your contractor has, the less likely he or she is to make mistakes. This can increase the longevity of the waterproofing sealant by ensuring appropriate application. Experienced contractors will understand the specific needs of your building and can identify leaks and reduce the risk of additional damage to the building. Additionally, when working with experienced contractors, you are less likely to have delays. When running your thriving business, you don’t have time to waste.
Ask Questions About Products
Most building owners do not know about the different products contractors use in waterproofing. Keep in mind sealants do break down and need repair over time. You need the right sealant for your building and its location. Most contractors use silicone or urethane sealants. Silicone is the most common because it protects against UV rays and is more durable. However, if you have masonry work, you may want to utilize urethane instead.
Ask About Testing Techniques
When choosing a contractor, ask about testing techniques. Many commercial waterproofing contractors use destructive testing. In destructive testing, they pull on the sealant to ensure it stays intact. If there is any dry rot, leaks, or mold, the process will reveal it.
After waterproofing, you should protect against leaks and further damage to your building. Our testing ensures that the waterproofing compounds will not fail and that the results will last.
