WATERPROOFING ISSUES IN BETWEEN PAINT CYCLES

IMPORTANCE OF IDENTIFYING & FIXING A WATERPROOFING ISSUE EARLY

What everyone needs to realize is that while Waterproofing is a preventative method of protecting your building, it is an ongoing process that must include both a proactive and a reactive building maintenance plan. With the harsh weather conditions Florida has; extremely high humidity for long periods of time; extreme sunlight which extracts moisture from even the best urethane waterproofing caulking material; most buildings are built with dissimilar materials (example: block and stucco base with the second or third floor being wood framed)


WHAT IS THE LEADING CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM (just to name a few)

1. Lack of having a Waterproofing Plan (Include waterproofing in your 7-10 year re-paint cycle)

2. Improper Materials Used (Ex: using a silicone caulk when a Urethane was necessary)

3. Not addressing the problem Immediately (Look for signs from your building: extreme white chalkiness present,

Excessive build-up of algae or mold, visible cracks in the stucco, reports of leaks, etc.…….)

4. Improper construction when originally built


IN SUMARRY

USE PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE & REACTIVE MAINTENANCE BOTH IN YOUR BUILDING ASSET PROTECTION PLAN

· Preventative Maintenance

· Inspect your building regularly

· Perform Repairs when they present themselves (Do not wait)

If you practice this, you will save the owners thousands and thousands of dollars over the years regarding damage caused by water intrusion.
