Joints are primarily added to concrete construction as a way of preventing cracking.
Joints provide a relief in pressure over time as concrete shifts due to changes in ground soil as well as expansion and contraction with heat and moisture throughout the day and year. Joints offer relief for that pressure.
Unfortunately, these joints also create opportunities for ground water and other in-compressible material to seep into the system. By sealing joints, we are able to prevent this weakness, and ensure long term protection against groundwater. A variety of methods may be used, including hot or cold sealants along with a backer rod to control the flow of sealant. We have a variety of materials that can be used depending on the job.
Our highly trained team is able to determine the best materials and practice needed for your particular joint job, getting it done right the first time - every time!
