WATERPROOFING

 

There are a number of waterproofing methods that can be implemented to prevent structural interiors from being compromised by water penetration.

CPS applies various liquid and self-adhering sheet membrane systems, urethane or epoxy injections and/or grouting designed to provide waterproofing protection for below-grade foundation walls, tunnels, plaza decks and parking structures. The cured membrane prevents water migration on both vertical and horizontal applications.

Crack Repair

Lean on our expertise repairing spalling and cracking in concrete floors for more than 30 years. Routing and sealing is the most common and effective method to minimize water leakage through cracks in parking garage floors. CPS utilizes specially-designed crack chasing equipment that provides an effective and environmentally-safe procedure for cutting cracks while keeping the air free from dust. Structural repairs using epoxy injection are also available.


Joint Sealants

Joint sealants help protect structures from moisture damage caused by rain, wind, gravity, capillary force, and surface tension.

CPS installs polyurethane and silicone sealants developed specifically for concrete expansion and control joints in parking structures to minimize water leakage. We apply materials designed for those conditions that require exceptional adhesion in facilities that exhibit extreme movement due to the volume changes in concrete.


Traffic Membranes

Vehicular traffic-bearing coating systems are designed to protect reinforced concrete parking structures, stadiums or plazas where moisture intrusion cannot be tolerated.

CPS installs a variety of traffic coating systems designed to provide long-term protection for new or existing concrete structures. Fluid-applied membranes are flexible, skid-resistant and have excellent crack-bridging capabilities. The application of a traffic coating will prolong the life of a structure and reduce future maintenance costs by preventing costly rebar deterioration due to moisture and deicing chemical penetration. Applications include parking structures, stadiums, balconies and mechanical equipment room floors.


Expansion Joints

Concrete expands and contracts with changes in moisture and temperature and as part of the curing process. As it shrinks, the stresses become greater than its tensile strength resulting in cracks.

CPS installs a commercial line of exterior expansion joint systems designed to meet the unique demands of a parking structure or stadium. The waterproof expansion joint systems incorporate flexible winged glands that are mechanically fastened to the deck using impact-absorbing elastomeric concrete. Each seal has a unique web configuration that is designed to accommodate expansion, contraction, shear, vertical and rotational movement. We also install a broad range of architectural expansion joints for interior building applications.


Plaza Decks & Green Roofs

When a surface needs to be absolutely water-tight, we install hot-applied, rubberized asphalt membranes. The systems provide waterproofing protection for plaza decks, planters, roof terraces and split-slab parking.

CPS also installs fully-adhered waterproof systems for green roof assemblies. A garden roof is a plant filled rooftop garden that offers an attractive and energy saving alternative to conventional roofing. It keeps buildings cooler and extends the useful life of the roof, while adding beauty and usable space. Our experienced staff will work with the local landscape architect to custom design the garden roof.


Below Grade Waterproofing

CPS applies various liquid and self-adhering sheet membrane systems designed to provide waterproofing protection for below-grade foundation walls, tunnels, plaza decks and parking structures. The cured membrane prevents water migration on both vertical and horizontal applications.


Concrete Sealers

CPS installs a variety of concrete sealers designed to provide economical protection for concrete and masonry surfaces. A quality sealer applied at the correct coverage rate will minimize premature deterioration as a result of water absorption, freeze thaw damage and deicing chemical penetration.
