Your properties rely on expansion joints to take on the stresses of thermal expansion and contraction during normal weather or emergencies. Without properly installed expansion joints at the right points on your property, every day of intense heat or night of intense cold can cause lasting damage to your building — even if it’s not always immediately obvious.
Expansion joints are a normal part of any construction project, something that will be included by default even if you don’t retain any specialists or put much thought into them — but if you want to fully meet standards within budget or exceed them for improved safety at an affordable cost, you’ll want to work with a team with the right experience and expertise.

Expansion joints are typically needed for walls and flooring to protect the concrete and keep the building structurally sound. Depending on your building, joints are also used for parking decks, flat roofs, tunnels and any brick or block façades. An experienced contractor can assess your building to determine where expansion joints are needed and which type will work best for your needs and budget.
Concrete will expand and contract as the temperature changes outside, and if your building doesn’t have expansion joints, this movement can make it unstable and cause structural issues. Expansion joints also stabilize your building as it settles naturally over the years.
The damage your building sustains from expansions and settling may not be immediately obvious, but it will add up over the years and result in serious structural problems. If your building has walls without expansion joints, you should retrofit them. Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing can install expansion joints to prevent any problems from getting worse.
