If you are a commercial building owner or property manager, it is essential that you protect the investment with annual waterproofing assessment, maintenance and repair / replacement services. Buildings of all types (i.e. historic and contemporary) are susceptible to water infiltration and resultant damage due to finite resistance capabilities of building materials.
Instead of deferring repair efforts and risking deterioration and ultimate loss of one’s assets and prized possessions, there are a myriad of preventative measures available for implementation. Building components with undressed deterioration will exhibit compounding damage in relatively short periods of time; rotten exterior trim/siding quickly translates to rotten structural framing. By focusing on basic, forward-thinking waterproofing services, property owners and managers can retain property value and building envelope integrity.
