Solid floors are frequently found to be damp, and the presence of an effective damp membrane under such floors sometimes may not be established. It is expensive and disruptive to dig up floors, surface screeds or asphalt; raising the level of the floor and causing problems at door ways. In addition to this, Bitumen and solvent based coatings gave off unpleasant vapours and may not withstand traffic or provide a decorative surface.
In these cases, Resin Coating represents an extremely effective solution.
In many cases, solid floors are not badly cracked or hollow – and can be easily repaired. However, such repairs are only worthwhile if the floors can be restored to provide a vapour proof surface, suitable for immediate floor covering or as an exposed traffic-able finish.
We apply a solvent free, water based two pack Epoxy Emulsion to the surface, where its unique characteristics allow the material to penetrate into a damp substrate, providing a vapour proof epoxy barrier.
The product is highly resistant to ground water and other salts, and is therefore particularly recommended where cement based materials would be considered at risk from sulphate, nitrate and other chemical attack. It is also exceptionally suitable for Food preparation areas, Portable water tanks, Swimming pools, and to provide a skid resistant surface finish.
McGuinness Building Preservation Ltd has decades of experience with Resin Coating & Concrete Injection.
Cracks can occur in concrete for various reasons. In some cases, they can considerably affect the suitability of the structure; along with the bearing capacity and water-tightness of the building. Furthermore, cracks have a negative aesthetic effect.
To maintain and restore operational use, any cracks appearing in a building or structure must be closed. Various injection procedures can be used depending on the cause of the crack and individual requirements. Using our innovative injection technology, we are able to repair any type or size of structural crack in masonry.
