Pressure washing

Pressure washing or power washing is the use of high-pressure water spray to remove loose paint, mold, grime, dust, mud, gum and dirt from surfaces and objects such as buildings, vehicles and concrete surfaces. The volume of a mechanical pressure washer is expressed in gallons or liters per minute, often designed into the pump and not variable. 

The pressure, expressed in pounds per square inch, pascals, or bar, is designed into the pump but can be varied by adjusting the unloader valve. Machines that produce pressures from 750 to 30,000 psi (5 to 200 MPa) or more are available. Pressure washing is used by businesses and homeowners to reduce allergies, minimize hazards, and improve aesthetics. A pressure washer is used to clean surfaces such asGutters, Roofs, Decks, Sidewalks, Patios, Driveways, Siding, Parking lots and cladding. Depending upon the surface to be cleaned, higher or lower pressure should be used, as well as the appropriate nozzle

Sandblasting

Sandblasting is the process of forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material against a surface under high pressure to smooth a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface, shape a surface or remove surface contaminants. It is an effective method of cleaning and preparing surfaces for refinishing.

 It is used to gently clean brick and wood surfaces or to aggressively strip metal and concrete surfaces in preparation for the application of a new high performance coating to interior or exterior building surfaces or to industrial equipment.A pressurised fluid, typically compressed air, or a centrifugal wheel is used to propel the blasting material. The latest equipment is used to safely remove corrosion, dirt, mould, paint on all areas even on rough or uneven surfaces. Homeowners prefer sandblasting as opposed to other removal methods as it saves a lot of time and leaves you with a clean, smooth surface for painting.Its speed and effectiveness to remove rust, scale, and old coatings is unmatched by any other method if completed in the correct manner.

Underpinning

Underpinning is the process of strengthening the foundation of an existing building or other structure. Underpinning is also a method of increasing the depth of an existing foundation by constructing new footings beneath the existing footings. It is a simple technique that involves excavating a segment of ground below the existing building foundation in controlled stages, to a depth where suitable soil conditions exist. The excavation is then filled with concrete and allowed to cure before the next ‘pin’ is excavated. Underpinning may be necessary for a variety of reasons which includes the original foundation isn’t strong or stable enough, usage of the structure has changed (through subsidence, expansion or contraction due to moisture, large trees nearby, damaged plumbing left unrepaired) or nearby construction resulted in the excavation of the soil supporting the existing foundation. The underpinning process also resolves interior water management that address dampness at the source ensures the space is safe and dry.

Demolition

Demolition is the dismantling, razing, destroying or wrecking of any building or structure or any part thereof: it is the science and engineer in safely and efficiently tearing down of building and other artificial structures. 

A structure is anything that is constructed, whether fixed or moveable, temporary or permanent, and includes buildings, sheds, towers, chimney stacks, silos, storage tanks. Demolition contrasts with deconstruction, which involves taking a building apart while carefully preserving valuable elements for reuse purposes. Homes that are only two or three stories high, demolition is a rather simple process. The building is pulled down either manually or mechanically using large hydraulic equipment. The goal is to finish the demolition in the most efficient and economical manner. Hand demolition is also a method used for smaller scale demolition projects, it has to be carried out in a more sensitive manner due to site constraints or structural instability. It involves the progressive demolition of structure using hand tools.

Tuckpointing

Tuckpointing is the process of removing old or deteriorating mortar from joints and replacing it with new mortar that closely matches the color of the bricks, it uses two contrasting colors of mortar which are placed in the mortar joints of brickwork, with one color matching the bricks themselves to give an artificial impression. Tuckpointing enhances the appearance of masonry, it stops the corrosion of the mortar, it restores structural stability and it prevents water from entering into the system. Depending on the depth of the deteriorated joint some companies would just resqueeze new mortar into the joint without cutting out the joints at least to ½ ” to ¾” depth to give a more secure depth so the mortar will stick and restrengthen the joints itself. Surface tuckpointing is not recommended because you do not get a lot of depth to hold the mortar. When we fill the spaces between the bricks, we ensure that the mortar matches the old color so that the area does not stand out. We do the same thing when performing repairs; the cement is colored to match the original brick or mortar to fill any gaps in the building

Waterproofing

Waterproofing is the process of making an object or structure waterproof or water-resistant so that it remains relatively unaffected by water or resisting the ingress of water under specified conditions.Such items may be used in wet environments or underwater to specified depths.In building construction, waterproofing is a fundamental aspect of creating a building envelope, which is a controlled environment.

The roof covering materials, siding, foundations, and all of the various penetrations through these surfaces must be water-resistant and sometimes waterproof. Roofing materials are generally designed to be water-resistant and shed water from a sloping roof, but in some conditions, such as ice damming and on flat roofs, the roofing must be waterproof. Many types of waterproof membrane systems are available, including felt paper or tar paper with asphalt or tar to make a built-up roof. Walls are not subjected to standing water, and the water-resistant membranes used as housewraps are designed to be porous enough to let moisture escape. Walls also have vapor barrier or air barriers. Damp proofing is another aspect of waterproofing. Masonry walls are built with a damp-proof course to prevent rising damp, and the concrete in foundations needs to be damp-proofed or waterproofed with a liquid coating, basement proofing membrane or an additive to the concrete.
