Choose a Contractor You Can Trust
Traffic coatings are designed to lock out harmful moisture. Traffic-bearing waterproofing systems, whether for vehicular or pedestrian traffic, significantly lower maintenance costs, prolong the life of substrates, and prevent scaling and spalling by providing excellent crack-bridging capabilities to prevent leaks in parking garages, stadiums, balconies, pedestrian walkways, plazas, and mechanical rooms.
In the Upper Midwest, using traffic coatings to provide waterproofing and crack-bridging protection is particularly important given the extreme climate conditions. In this region, moisture, combined with chlorides used in deicing chemicals, can leak into or soak through the concrete. Once it reaches the steel, the salt causes expansive corrosion and rusting of re-bar that will result in unsightly, destructive, and costly deterioration of the structure. During freeze/thaw cycles, water can also cause damage to concrete decks as it expands and contracts.
