Over the past few years we have witnessed a vast growth in inquiries from our clients regarding exterior wall coatings and sealers as part of the building envelope refurbishment/maintenance process. At the core, installing a coating or sealer to an exterior facade is a seemingly simple process. However, as we have become more involved we have observed how the lack of properly addressing pre-existing conditions prior to the installation of a coating or sealer can have a direct effect on the end product and its overall performance. Installation of these products will not correct improperly installed through-wall flashings, tuckpointing issues, or deteriorated sealant. Proper assessment of your building and professional development of a scope of work can avoid wasting time and money.
