Water Protection

There are many different types of waterproofing materials and processes, each designed for specific surfaces and/or applications. Brick, natural and precast stone, concrete, EFIS, wood, or aluminum surfaces can benefit from water protection. Whether it is caulking, coatings or repellant applications, they are all designed primarily for one purpose – to prevent water infiltration without acting as a vapor barrier. Landmark has experienced trained professionals who possess a keen understanding of the uses and applications of these products.

Caulking

Sealing exterior cracks and seams is an important part of building maintenance. It reduces entry of air, dirt, and moisture and contributes to lower heating and cooling costs. Among the most important exterior areas requiring attention are:

  4Windows
  4Door Frames
  4Control Joints
  4Exterior Penetrations
      (i.e. air condition units, vents)
  4Epoxy injections for unfilled cracks and gaps in foundation


Coatings

High quality masonry coatings allow for vapor permeation, allowing the masonry to respond naturally to vapor and salts. They are generally color fast, retard corrosion and biological growth and provide resistance to weathering. Elastomeric coatings are crack bridging. Coatings enhance the visual and aesthetic appearance of the structure. Most coatings are applied by brush or roller.

Repellants

Water repellants provide a deep-penetrating treatment for most brick, natural stone, terra cotta, concrete, stucco, wood and cast stone surfaces. They are usually applied by spray, brush or roller. It is important that repellants allow for the treated surfaces to breath, not trapping moisture. These products afford long lasting protection against deterioration caused by water, salts, carbon, mold, mildew etc.
