Protecting your roof from harsh weather is one of the most important things you can do for your home. If you own your home, you know how much of an investment it really is. From occasional repairs to regular upkeep, keeping your home functional and inviting is tough, but worth it. Which is why it’s surprising that so many homes don’t properly protect their roofs. Your roof is constantly exposed to the outside world and is threatened by water on a regular basis. Protecting your home doesn’t just apply to the inside, your home also needs protected on the outside as well.
Another area of your home that needs waterproofing is a plywood deck. Plywood decks are an integral part of many homes and can be found in all kinds of states. Some decks are immaculate and waterproofed while others…well, they just look awful. Exposed wood is just as bad as exposed concrete. Often, it’s even worse. While concrete will break down over time, a plywood deck will break down much quicker, causing you a headache sooner rather than later. As such, it’s a good idea to protect your deck like any other part of your home.

Waterproofing is a necessity for every home and business. That’s a cold, hard fact. If your building is standing, there’s something in or near it that needs protected against water damage.

The best way to protect your building or outdoor space is to waterproof it before it’s a problem.

Industrial floors need to be functional, protective, and extremely durable. Because of these stringent requirements, less durable floor coatings simply will not do in an industrial environment. Knowing this, it’s a good idea to choose the best floor coating to meet your space’s requirements.
Animal shelters play a unique role in modern society. These environments are tasked with a balance of protecting the building while being comfortable for both the animals it serves and the public that visit. This is not an easy task as you’ll see in many shelter environments. Unfortunately, too many animal shelters focus more on function than on the entire package. They have floors that are strong enough to handle abuse and regular traffic, but the results are often extremely hard floors that are hazardous to the animals. The key to a truly effective animal shelter floor is having one that is functional, protective, safe, and inviting.
