Waterproofing

Marzucco's Keeps Water at Bay

Leaky garages and planters are typical problems that arise when waterproofing substrates are compromised.   Move water away efficiently from structurally sensitive building features like expansion joints.

Water is a Diversion

We are experienced in working with both cold-applied and hot-applied waterproofing products including:

  • Balconies
  • Elevated walkways
  • Parking garages
  • Plaza decks
  • Planters

Cold-applied waterproofing products and Hot-applied products are available in both pedestrian and vehicular systems.

The selection of product is best made after a consultation with an engineer addressing the specific requirements of the project. The success of the installation is highly dependent on the details. Are the drain details specified by the manufacturer followed to the letter? Is every penetration of the deck fully addressed? Are the expansion joints a compatible system installed with a seamless interface to the waterproofing?

Expansion Joints

Expansion Joints are an Integral part of a complete exterior envelope, thermal movement & design movement are very important in making sure that the design of the expansion joint is suitable for the building.   Expansion and contraction take place during various states of weather this is why expansion joints are so important in high-rise and midrise construction.

Maintenance:

Expansion joints should be inspected on a yearly basis to evaluate the performance of the expansion joint.   If the expansion joint is not performing correctly some of the most common indicators of failing expansion joints is water intrusion and/or delaminating building materials such as concrete and stucco.

The following are the basic types of expansion joints:

  1. Fluid applied urethane
  2. Fluid applied silicone
  3. Pre-fabricated rubber & Composite systems
  4. Compression foam joints
  5. Mechanical joints

Warranties:

We offer 5, 10 & 20 year labor & material warranties.   All warranties are reliant on materials used.
