It depends on a few factors, like the overall size of the building and the dimensions of the concrete slabs used. Expansion joints are typically needed for walls and flooring to protect the concrete and keep the building structurally sound.
Expansion joints stabilize your building during movement. In addition to the safety issues that can occur when a building doesn’t have the right number of expansion joints, there will also be serious structural damage over time as the building sways and settles.
Determining how many expansion joints you need and how far apart they should be can be complicated. It depends on the size of your building, the thickness of the concrete slabs and the materials used. An experienced contractor from Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing can make sure the walls in your building have the appropriate number of expansion joints per foot.
