At The Aerial Companies, we have seen the serious structural and aesthetic problems water damage can cause. Considering what it costs to repair that kind of damage, it only makes sense to do everything possible to try and prevent it during the construction phase. That means starting with the best, time-tested, waterproofing products in the industry.
The four waterproofing products we trust our reputation to, during construction or water damage repair, are Sika®, BASF’s Sonoguard®, Tremco®, Wet Flash®, and Schlüter Systems®. Each product is used for different types of waterproofing. If you suspect water intrusion or structural damage due to water, call us for a complete inspection.
Sika’s liquid applied membrane systems have a 25 year track record of waterproofing protection for roofs, plaza decks, balconies, planters and similar applications. Systems are available for exposed, inverted, green and built up roofs as well as for refurbishment or existing roofs. Sika’s innovative “moisture triggered chemistry” (MTC) polyurethane technology resists gassing and foaming and is resistant to rain after application more quickly than traditional moisture cure technologies. It cures to a highly durable, seamless, fully bonded, waterproof, elastomeric membrane. Sikalastic RoofPro Systems incorporate high performance aliphatic base and top coats as well as a unique, highly conformable fiberglass reinforcement and are available in 10, 15, 20 and 25 year warranty configurations.
Sonoguard is a liquid applied moisture-cure polyurethane seamless waterproofing membrane system with an integral aggregate surface. Sonoguard’s tough, continuously elastomeric properties achieve long term protection against water ingress. High skid resistance with alaphatic top coat ensures long life and suitability for public locations.
Sonoguard is recommended for waterproofing exterior surfaces subject to light vehicle and pedestrian traffic loads. Skid resistant textures are incorporated for safety as required. Substrates include concrete, cement fiber sheet, plywood and incidental metal on car park decks. Provides durable attractive membrane to balconies, plaza decks, rooftops, plant rooms and overcoating old membranes and copings.
Tremco® is a leader in developing residential waterproofing, weatherproofing, sealants, and passive fire control solutions for residential and commercial construction and industrial applications. Our experts, at The Aerial Companies, use the TremcoVulkem 350/351 product and the TREMproof 250 GC with TREMDrain product.
Tremco’s Vulkem 350/351 is a cold applied deck coating system that cures to form an easy-to-clean, aesthetically appealing rubber membrane surface. The non-skid surfaces make it a popular choice for pedestrian walkways and other foot traffic surfaces.
TREMproof 250 GC is very versatile, commonly being used in construction below grade between slabs on plaza decks, and roof terraces, to waterproofing for foundation walls, tunnels, planter boxes, and more.
The Aerial Companies, Inc. is a Certified Applicator of Tremco® products. To learn more about our Tremco product solutions, please visit our Tremco® page.
WetFlash® was developed by Building Envelope Innovations, LLC (BEI) after years of investigating and repairing water intrusion damage around windows and doors. The method and flashing material BEI developed is not only a proven improvement in waterproofing window and door openings, it also simplifies the installation. WetFlash protects the building from new water damage, while saving time and material costs. BEI partnered with Prosoco and Wet-Flash® Systems now being sold as PROSOCO R-GUARD®.
Please visit our WetFlash page for more information about the product and a detailed report on how The Aerial Companies, Inc. conducts a WetFlash /R-Guard installation.
Waterproofing is not only about keeping water out. Just as important is the science and art of getting water to drain away! The Schlüter-DITRA-DRAIN MAT system is a product we use to maximize drainage of exposed exterior elevated stone and marble deck assemblies. Please read our Schlüter Deck Drainage Case Study page for detailed information about how our experts, at The Aerial Companies, Inc., installed this product in a beach front estate home in Naples, Florida.
Schluter-Systems is world renowned for their products. Each new product the company develops undergoes internal quality testing as well as testing carried out by reputable independent institutes, including the Tile Council of North America (TCNA), the Terrazzo, Tile, and Marble Association of Canada (TTMAC), and the National Research Council in Ottawa, Canada.
