Waterproofing of building walls, site walls, floors, exterior planters, basements. Keeping a building watertight is critical to the preservation of any structure. Water is, after all, the single most damaging element to a building facility. In many cases, facility managers and building owners are faced with water problems that plague a structure from initial construction. As time goes on, these problems become even more severe. Give us the opportunity to solve these problems for you, and to provide a maintenance plan for the future so you can avoid costly repairs and upset tenants. We waterproof building walls, site walls, floors, exterior planters, basements just to name a few.
There are vast numbers of waterproofing methods. Each tends to be well-suited to some applications and has drawbacks that make it a poor choice for other applications. The application or the purpose of your waterproofing, including the materials you’re attempting to waterproof, generally dictate the best methods. Each method creates a water barrier, only in different ways.

Sealants are used to seal joints and openings in various architectural applications, which include:
What may seem to be a simple and mundane re-caulking job on the exterior elevations of a structures is, in fact, a complex combination of different products and application methods designed to seal the building envelope.
W S Caulking will assess your building, analyzing existing leakage from both window, door and other building openings. We will look for structural cracking, failure of joint materials, and porosity of the vertical walls. This will allow us to determine the work necessary to properly seal the building.
There is both a science and an art to successful completion of a functional sealant joint. We take into consideration the joint design, adhesion and compatibility testing while planning installation. Sealants cannot make up for poor substrate conditions or improper or poor joint design. They must have: Proper joint design especially for joints that experience movement.
Selection of a durable sealant product appropriate for its function and environmental exposure
Proper sealant, sealant backing, and joint filler installation.
Sealants are often the least thought about and contribute the lowest percentage to a project’s overall cost (less than 3%); however, they can become a serious problem and account for expensive damage if not sealed right the first time.
Long-term remedies pay for themselves many times over and should be the manner necessary to approach a project.
