PROTECTING YOURSELF FROM WATER DAMAGE

Whether you’re looking for preventative waterproofing like coatings, glazings, sealants and caulking or restorative waterproofing like EIFS repairs and retroactive caulking, our team is ready to provide predictable outcomes for any upcoming project. We serve a broad range of industries and use top-of-the-line products to protect your building for years to come.

WATERPROOFING CONSIDERATIONS

  • Waterproofing your property is no simple task. There are a number of considerations our team reviews on every single waterproofing project to ensure precision and accuracy of the project. The most common factors include:
    • Joint Width
      This may sound like common sense, but no two joints are exactly the same size. This can inadvertently leave your building exposed to water or moisture. Different width joints could even require different materials types or sizes used on the project. Our team of skilled experts knows how to ensure your building is going to be protected from leaks by properly identifying the problem areas and then knowing the correct material to apply to fix it.   
    • Exterior Insulation & Finish System (EIFS)
      EIFS is a multi-layer insulation board — made up of a foam insulation board, a coat of synthetic stucco, fiberglass mesh, and then a topcoat. EIFS are a non-load-bearing cladding system that provides exterior walls with an insulated, water-resistant finished surface. It is also less likely to crack than traditional stucco because of the mesh netting that reinforces the base layers. 
    • Commercial Painting & Waterproofing Products
      Every commercial painting project should include some level of waterproofing consideration. Outside of the obvious water stains and mildew, using specialized coatings like Elastomerics on a commercial painting project can help protect your property from water penetration and structural damages caused by moisture intrusion. 

COMMON PITFALLS ON WATERPROOFING PROJECTS

When it comes to protecting your buildings with waterproofing services, our team is keenly aware of the common challenges that arise for property managers. The specialists at Renovia have experience supporting all of the following conversations and pitfalls:

 

  • Partial replacement vs. full replacement
  • Tracking joints completed
  • Potential warranty claims if coatings are applied 
  • Property appearance vs. different substrates used
  • Difficult to reach joints that require additional access
  • Warranties considerations (new vs existing coatings)
  • Adhesion/pull test lead time (min. 10 days)

Renovia completed both interior and exterior projects for us this past year. These projects were completed within the timeframe allotted and there were no issues in execution. Communication, service and execution exceeded our expectations. Based on their performance in our portfolio, I would highly recommend Renovia for consideration in a national paint program for retail establishments.
