A parapet is a barrier which is an extension of the wall at the edge of a roof, terrace, balcony or other structure. It may be a portion of an exterior wall that continues above the line of the roof surface. Parapet walls are common in buildings in the Chicagoland area and serve a dual purpose: they are aesthetically pleasing and also act as a firewall between buildings.
Such structures often endure a lot of wear and tear, especially in Chicago’s harsh climatic conditions. They are susceptible to cracking and efflorescence. A deteriorating parapet can lead to water leakage inside and outside of the building, which in turn leads to further damage.
Our masons can take care of such wear and tear quickly and efficiently so that your building can continue looking good and keeping you safe.
Applying the proper type of waterproofing agent on your building can easily prevent water seeping into the porous masonry. It is of utmost importance to waterproof your building to avoid avoidable costs in the longer run.
Once water penetrates your structure, it can cause extensive damage and quickly deteriorate the infrastructure of a building that is made up of block, concrete, mortar or brick. Repeated freeze-thaw cycles (which are very common in the Chicagoland weather cycle) can cause a structure to weaken and provide an unsafe environment in the building.
Midwest roofing can help prevent such calamities by taking early action and applying clear, non-residue sealer that will provide a long life to your building surfaces.
