Ev-Air-Tight has experience repairing balconies dating back to 1980. The scope of this service varies widely from one project to another and so does the complexity. In some cases only minor surface repairs are needed. The repair procedure could simply involve the removal of spalled concrete on the surface, detailing the edges of the repair area and properly placing an appropriate patch material. Other times the project could involve railing removal, shoring, extensive demolition, rebar replacement, forming and pouring new concrete, new railings and deck coatings. Add to this a limited area at ground level that requires complicated overhead protection and you have one of the more complicated projects with which we have experience. Ev-Air-Tight has the experience you need to properly and professionally repair balconies. Our advantage is in the level of service we offer to make the project trouble-free.
Ev-Air-Tight has been involved in our industry in the Washington area since the 1950's during which time we have witnessed the evolution of products for coating all types of masonry. There have been remarkable improvements over the years. We can now offer coatings for walls that run the gamut from clear sealers to silicone-based decorative and protective coatings. For concrete slabs, we can apply everything from clear sealers to traffic-bearing urethane coatings. We have established great relationships with manufacturers and distributors of many products. These relationships benefit our customers by adding to our depth of knowledge to assure the best products are offered in every situation and that they are applied exactly according to the manufacturers' requirements.
Ev-Air-Tight has over 50 years experience in the Washington area performing all aspects of facade repair. Additionally, we have sound relationships with other experts with whom we partner to offer a complete package of facade repair and restoration. We can perform any or all aspects of restoration and repair from caulking, tuckpointing, patching masonry, metal repair and restoration, painting and applying coatings. We not only remove and replace existing caulking when caulking replacement is called for in a project. We have the depth of knowledge to know when a joint is not properly sized to perform its intended function and will make sure it is before it is recaulked. We pay attention to details like completely removing existing caulking prior to placement of new material and applying the right primers to assure it bonds properly. Our emphasis is always on doing the work the way it is supposed to be done so our customers get a long-lasting, high-quality end product.
There are many categories of waterproofing each requiring a different method of repair. Ev-Air-Tight has the depth of knowledge and experience to assess and diagnose all types of waterproofing problems. We value engineer repair procedures and assure they are properly implemented. At times a repair might simply involve replacement of failed caulking or pointing failed mortar joints. At other times it could be more complicated and require the removal of masonry to expose and repair or replace through-wall flashings. If a leak appears through a concrete structure 50 feet below ground level we are the ones to trust to remedy it. Whatever your waterproofing problem is, you can count on Ev-Air-Tight to resolve it.
There is more to tuckpointing than merely putting mortar in cracked mortar joints. You can count on Ev-Air-Tight to properly tuckpoint your failed masonry joints. It is critical to the integrity of the masonry that the proper mortar mix is made and installed. There are different types of cements, aggregates and pigments that must be chosen to create just the right mortar mix in order to properly perform a tuckpointing job. The joints must be carefully prepared to accept the new mortar without damaging the surrounding masonry. This requires skilled and trained mechanics. Ev-Air-Tight prides itself in the quality of our workers and the care they take to assure their work is the best in the industry.
