We work with 2 main types of sealants: Silicone and Urethane,

Silicone Sealants

Silicone caulking materials are made up of non-organic compounds which will far outlast a urethane sealant, but are typically higher in cost. In ideal situations an exterior joint sealed with Silicone will last roughly 15-20 years.

There are two types of Silicone sealants • Acid Cure – for mold/mildew resistance (used in bathrooms, kitchens, and food processing facilities) • Neutral cure – for excellent movement and adhesion (used on metal panels, glass, brick, block & concrete)

Urethane Sealants

Urethane caulking materials are generally used on exterior flat work and vertical masonry or concrete. It is available in self leveling or non-sagging formulas, has good adhesion to porous materials, and is non-staining. Under typical conditions urethane will last about 9-11 years on the exterior of a building.

Security Sealants

Security sealants are most often used in correctional facilities but are also seen in schools and hospitals. They are epoxy based sealants that are “pick proof” to prevent tampering and vandalism that may endanger children, patients, or security guards. The limitations of this material include extremely limited movement capabilities. Security Sealants also require installation in locations free from precipitation.

Firestopping

There are several reasons why fire protection exists. The most important of these is protecting lives, which it does by helping contain fire to one location within a building.

We use 2 types of Firecaulking • Gungrade – commonly used at wall tops and around floor and wall penetrations • Sprayable – generally used at curtain walls & wall tops where maximum movement capabilities are required

It is just one more way in which CDM is striving to serve its customers and exceed their expectations.

Expansion waterproofing

The three main types of waterproofing services we offer are below grade, fluid applied and concrete sealer.

Below Grade waterproofing is designed to be applied before the foundation walls are backfilled or as an underlayment for a concrete floor. Fluid applied products are mostly used in horizontal applications, and are typically applied on plaza decks and roof decks. Concrete seal is a silane mixture used to penetrate concrete and help repel water and therefore slow aging. It also helps keep moisture from seeping through parking decks and causing lime to drip, resulting in paint damage to parked cars.

Restoration

We provide sealant and mortar restoration in EIFS, Concrete & Brick, Depending on the type of product you have installed, there can be a wide variety of life spans. An exterior caulking joint typically needs re-caulking every 9-11 years with urethane and 15-20 years with silicone.

Expansion joint systems should last for countless years if correctly installed. When repairs are required, they are typically the result of incorrect installation or poor joint selection.

Below grade waterproofing is usually repaired by patching in cases where membrane becomes torn. (Read our reviews)
