Joint Sealing & Waterproofing
It is a well known saying that any building or structure is only as strong as its weakest part. This is true even in the case of concrete, one of the toughest and most robust materials available, being used as part of a building project. Usually it is the case that corners and joints are the area most susceptible to being the weakest part on any concrete structure. The damage that water can cause to concrete means that joint sealing and waterproofing is vital in basement and ground level floors or aspects of any structure.
Despite remarkable advances in the technology of concrete and the technique of using it, it simply isn’t possible to build with concrete in a way that leaves it entirely impervious. At some stage every concrete structure is going to come into contact with water, or another form of liquid that will penetrate and cause erosion. Whereas waterproofing must be applied across the entirety of a structure, joints are naturally the weakest point and so require special attention and measures to be put in place. At Churchill we have a firm understanding of this and make sure the work we carry out incorporates this factor.
Our approach is one which always sees us gaining a complete and comprehensive understanding of both the concrete structure and the environment in which it is in before applying joint sealing and waterproofing measures. This is vital to ensuring that a lasting, sustainable solution is in place. With Churchill you always have the assurance that protection designed specifically for your unique circumstances is put in place.
