Elastomeric Coatings and Penetrating Sealants are waterproofing solutions which are applied to a building structure in order to keep water from entering the composition. Elastomeric coatings are usually applied as a fluid paint-like material to concrete or similar material, which forms a rubber like membrane when cured. Penetrating sealants can be applied in a spray-on form to a porous material, such as brick, which causes the material to be impenetrable by water.
Customer had 3 buildings in need of structural and cosmetic improvements. Customer was trying to stop water penetration during driving rains and also give the building a facelift to enhance appearance. (Building was getting ready to be sold.)
After meeting with Building representatives, Tri-State made the following observations and recommendations:
- Recaulk all joints on bullnose ledges
- Apply elastomeric coating to all bullnoses
- Apply waterproof penetrating sealant to all brickwork
- Powerwash entire structure to remove all mildew and mold
During the course of the project, the customer noticed sagging panels underneath the bullnoses. Panel repair was added to the scope of work, for a nominal cost. The job was completed as quoted and on time.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Tri-State for many years. Just last year they worked on a job for me to give one of our buildings a face lift. It entailed applying an elastomeric coating, recaulking the expansion joints and the sealing and painting of the brick facade. The job went smoothly and the owner was very satisfied with the results. I highly recommend Tri-State’s team of professionals for your exterior maintenance needs.”
