Waterproofing

Waterproofing is a critical component in building envelope performance and one of the most common causes of litigation. Failed waterproofing can impact building aesthetic, energy efficiency, water intrusion, and can even compromise the structural integrity of a building.

ABBAE provides expert vertical, horizontal, and below-grade waterproofing solutions for new construction, reconstruction, and forensic investigation projects. Our staff includes several Registered Waterproofing Consultants (RWC®) that are  familiar with all common commercial waterproofing product types  including: fluid applied membranes, self-adhering sheet membranes, bituminous and thermoplastic sheet membranes, and composite rubberized asphalt membranes.

While waterproofing is a general area of expertise, ABBAE focuses specifically on the conscientious integration of the waterproofing systems into the building envelope. We believe that appropriate building system selection, proper detailing, and integration into waterproofing systems can make the difference between a long lasting building versus a low-performing one.
