One of our projects was the new addition at Lourdes College in Sylvania, Ohio. The specifications for the project required three layers of protection. The first layer in our waterproofing techniques is the application of Procor. This seamless waterproofing vapor barrier stops the water from passing into the concrete. The second layer is insulation board to keep your building warm. The final layer is drainboard which directs the water down to the base of the building where it is collected and routed away from the building.
Mercy Hospital in Tiffin, Ohio added a large addition and selected Great Lakes to keep their new addition dry. This project spec included Volclay panels nailed to the foundation wall with a layer of drainboard protection to move water away from the building.
The University of Michigan completed a major renovation project. We were enlisted to do air barriers.
