It is estimated that as much as 90% of all water intrusion problems occur within the 1% of the total building exterior surface that contains the terminations and transition detailing leading to structural deterioration, increased energy consumption and mold and mildew. Whether new construction or restoration and refurbishment, addressing these critical connections (window-to-wall tie-ins, roof-to-wall tie-ins, foundation-to-wall tie-ins, penetrations and corners) to help ensure:
Consider just some of the restoration capabilities that Tremco offers our clients:
Restoring Airtightness and Weather-Resistance to Window and Curtain Wall Systems
The window and curtain wall system has evolved over the years, especially with respect to weather control performance. Each has its own unique challenges and is designed to respond to different performance requirements when controlling the passage of air and water.
In the case of the Puerto Rico Convention Center, Tremco employed Spectrem silicone sealant and designed a custom gasket overlay system to address the failing skylight system. The cost effective solution was aestetically pleasing and cut back significantly on labor and facility downtime.
Parking Structure Preservation
Parking structures represent a major capital expenditure for owners. Once constructed, they are expected to last for several decades, despite wide temperature variations, extremely corrosive conditions and impressive loads. Vehicular traffic takes a daily toll. De-icing salts, acid rain and caustic chemicals compound the abuse.
Prolong Productive Life of Building Weather Seals While Adding Thermal Protection
When looking for the ultimate protection, Spectrem Silicone Sealants used in conjunction with our illmod 600 pre-compressed polyurethane joint sealant can simplify sealant restoration while prolonging productive life and more.
