When severe water infiltration required tarps to protect parked cars from falling water and spalling concrete, owners of the 191 Presidential condominium complex realized they need a fix and fast.
With over 500 residents, the 10-story structure includes a ground level parking deck and an underground parking garage. A failed concrete repair 12 years prior ultimately led to water leaks on the main level, significant concrete deterioration and rusting metal.
Watts Restoration and Conn-Shaffer Consulting Engineers were brought in to investigate and execute on a remediation plan. Since the new waterproofing membrane was going to be covered by a hot asphalt pavement, they sought out a system that could handle the weight, vehicular traffic and movement.
The TREMproof PUMA Under Asphalt system was determined to be the ideal solution because of its ease of application, durability and extreme elongation properties.
Polyurethane-methacrylate (PUMA) technology is also rapid-curing, making it a perfect restoration method to mitigate occupant disruption.
Tremco PUMA Primer was roller-applied and then lightly broadcast with aggregate. The Tremco PUMA Base Coat and Top Coat were applied. Finally, any cracks in the concrete were detailed with Tremco's Dymonic 100 Polyurethane Sealant.
