Even though many of us think of buildings and structures as durable and permanent, structures can incur many different types of distress due to moisture, movement, airborne pollutants and general deterioration. The truth is that the only means for a structure to withstand the test of time is to provide it with constant protection.
Protection will not only enhance the appearance of your building but will also increase its value and marketability. In many cases, buildings or structures without proper protection and care will represent a liability to their owner.
Our staff and management have many years of experience with all facets of building protection systems. So, whether it’s a parking garage, hospital, hotel, condo on the beach or a major sports facility, we offer a wide variety of restoration services for the long-term protection of your facility.
Bick and stone repair provides both aesthetic and function to the exterior façade of a structure by updating the mortar joints or actually replacing missing, cracked or delaminated parts of the façade.
The purpose of thru-wall flashing is to export all moisture or water intrusion that enters the exterior wall system. Many water intrusion issues are exposed by actually removing the exterior façade and getting to the thru-wall flashing and making proper repairs.
Due to the dynamic movement or usage that many structures incur, the stress over time causes failures that can create water intrusion issues, substrate deterioration or safety hazards. Since the average life span of an expansion joint system is between five to 10 years at best, routine maintenance and replacement is a cost-effective method to avoid major repair costs. You can trust the expansion joint contractors at Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing to get the job done right.
Caulking and sealants provide important protection for structures against water intrusion, air infiltration, insect intrusion, glazing failure and slab control joint protection. Since all building sealants have a life span, some more than others, we offer complete building sealant removal and replacement services. Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing offers minor repairs on all building types and substrates for all joint sealant types listed below. We also offer glazing sealant repair and concrete sealant repair.
Roofing repair provides long-lasting protection and functionality to areas that are typically not used. The following types of roofing systems also provide credits toward LEED Building Certification.
Decorative coping coating provides watertight protection to one of the most vulnerable parts of a structure without completely removing and replacing the in-place coping. Instead, it simply covers what’s in place.
Coatings provide an architectural element to a structure and act as protection against moisture and airborne pollutants such as carbon and salts. In most cases, the addition or maintenance of a coating system will provide you with a high level of protection, considering the average life span of most systems is between five and 10 years. Alpha Insulation & Waterproofing also offers coating system repairs.
Structural repairs provide your structure with the integrity required for it to perform without possible catastrophic failure. We can provide minor or major repairs as needed.
Chemical grouts provide structural integrity and protection against water intrusion to cracks in substrates due to unforeseen conditions such as dynamic movement or substandard substrates.
Cleaning and sealing provide protection and help reduce efflorescence, atmospheric staining, and mildew. Ideal for use on precast or stone structures by providing a substrate that’s clean but maintains its natural texture
Waterproofing provides long-lasting protection to a structure from water intrusion by installing protection at the point of entry or from inside a structure. We offer repair or removal and replacement services on all building types and for all materials listed below.
