Balcony Waterproofing and Restoration:
Chicago Tuckpointing Inc. provides balcony waterproofing and restoration services. Balconies are a huge benefit for a property, both in commercial and residential settings. This is in part because they can be an attractive addition to a building’s architecture, but also because they are a strong selling point for many tenants or office-dwellers.
Unfortunately, however, balconies are also prime targets for the elements, being forced to stand up to wind, rain, and sometimes snow, therefore, is exposed to damages.
A Balcony Waterproofing comprises of a monolithic, fully adhered, fluid applied roofing membrane. It has elastic properties that allow it to stretch and return to their original shape without damage.
Typical balcony coating dry film thickness varies from paint film thickness (plus or minus 3 dry mils) to more than 40 dry mils. This means a roof coating actually becomes the top layer of a composite roof membrane and the underlying system. As such, the roof coating is the topmost layer of protection for the membrane, receiving the impact of sunlight (both infrared and ultraviolet (UV), rain, hail and physical damage.
Benefits of Balcony Waterproofing and Restoration:
Water will find its way into your concrete, pooling inside the cracks and crevices. When it freezes, it, unfortunately, expands causing larger cracks. This becomes a literally growing issue and can eventually damage the building. The waterproofing coating provided by us not only helps to preserve your balcony by providing the layer of protection and added durability, but it also promotes a safer environment thanks to its non-slip surface.
