Sub grade waterproofing is the treatment of a structure’s surface to prevent the passage of water under hydrostatic head or standing water conditions. The methods and products we use allow for same day installation of windows, doors and other wall assembly, waterproofing or air barrier components.
Water leaking into the rough openings and framing from faulty window and door installations or leaky windows, has caused tremendous damage to buildings large and small. The restoration and repair of this damage has created a crisis for owners, builders and insurance companies. The effect of window and door installation failure includes:
• Warranty liability for builders;
• Delays in construction;
• Increased insurance premiums for builders and building owners; and
• Increased cost of home ownership to the general population.
Building Envelope Innovations, Inc. developed Wet-Flash®, Liquid Applied Flashing System which is now distributed by Prosoco as R-Guard® Fast-Flash. Aerial is one of the leading installers of this proven product line.
The installation method involves coating the window or door opening with the Fast-Flash® waterproof membrane; permanently bonding to a wide variety of construction materials under most construction site environments.
Visit the Fast-Flash installation overview page to learn how this system simplifies window and door installations – protecting the building from future water damage and saving installation time and material costs.
We pay extra attention to door thresholds at elevated decks. We’ve observed major water damage caused by the lack of proper waterproofing at these door to deck transitions.
