Waterproofing and protection techniques are used to control deterioration of structures. These techniques alter service or exposure conditions, enhance physical properties, install barriers, alter electro-chemical behavior, or halt water infiltration.
Waterproofing and coating techniques prevent water from entering or exiting a structure through cracks, joints, or failed waterstops, while protection techniques extend the time duration between maintenance cycles.
Choosing appropriate techniques requires an evaluation of factors such as cause/effect relationships, useful life, constructability, environment, aesthetics, and cost-benefits. STRUCTURAL has the experience necessary to perform the best applicable waterproofing and protection techniques based on the particular project and service requirements.
