Plaza Restoration
The restoration of a common plaza area on top of a structures garage is a common need for a building 10-20 years old. In residential and hotel facilities, this area includes the pool area, and is the focal point of the entire property. In commercial facilities it usually includes a park-like setting, and is also is a selling point to tenants.

These projects include demolition, structural concrete repair, garage repair, strengthening of concrete for new loads, waterproofing, pool white-coat, tile and filter repair, installation of pavers, landscaping, and miscellaneous structures. Many specialty contractors cannot handle such and undertaking, but most quality general contractors feel these jobs are too small for them.

Lindman has specialized in these complex projects since 1993, and we have completed dozens of plaza repair projects from New York to Miami. Many are multi-million dollar complex projects, but we have staged phased multi-year renovations that were small projects with similar success.

With our experience and ability to perform so many parts of the Plaza Renovation project in-house, Lindman should be your first call when you are ready to renovate your plaza.

Water can and will penetrate most materials used in construction. It is tenacious in finding weak points in the existing waterproofing, and will over time, creates leaks in most buildings. Water penetration is the number one cause of the work we perform. Water penetrating into buildings, into masonry causing problems with the brick, into concrete causing spalls in the concrete are all sources deterioration of the building envelope. The quality and detailing of original construction is a common source of this deterioration, but any building will begin to need maintenance within 5 years of original construction. If normal maintenance is not routine performed most buildings can expect a significant waterproofing and restoration project within the first 15 years of a building's life.

Waterproofing is made up a numerous components, including caulking, glazing, flashings, caps, membranes (cold or hot), clear sealers, roofing materials, and more. Each of these items is manufactured using several types of material. For example caulk is available in urethane, silicone, acrylic, butyl and combinations of these materials. So there are dozens of combinations available to waterproof any building.

With all of these materials available from several different large manufactures, experienced contractors are constantly tracking the ever changing waterproofing technologies.

Many of these products require expensive application machines to assure the materials are mixed and applied in accordance with the recommended application procedures the manufactures have specified. When incurring the expense of re-waterproofing their building, clients demand that quality contractors perform repairs to the manufacturer's exact specifications. Lindman is a recognized leader in installing new waterproofing systems in existing buildings.

Expansion Joint Replacement
Expansion Joints are the most difficult component of waterproofing systems to keep dry. The reason expansion joints are of such concern is the concentration of movement and forces at these joints. Often the original design did not anticipate these forces, and movement so replacing the failed joint with a similar joint is not the answer. Expansion joint designs, and the materials available both have advanced over the last 20 years, so a new system is commonly the best solution for expansion joint repair.

Waterproofing and expansion joint detailing have become standardized and have more readily tied the two systems together. In some instances, one system can be used for both the waterproofing and expansion joints, as hot rubber is when installed under pavers.

Expansion joint manufactures have learned from joint failures caused by snow plows and street sweepers and now manufacturer's joints which are more resistant to these types of abuse. Engineers and Architects that specialize in restoration projects understand that the original designers did not pay enough attention the expansion joint details, and issue a complete set repair details for expansion joints in restoration projects now.

Lindman installs all kinds of expansion joint systems as part of our restoration work on plazas, facades and in garages.

Hot Rubber Waterproofing
The introduction of “self healing” hot rubber membrane waterproofing has been the largest improvement in waterproofing technology in many years. The technology is similar to the Uniroyal tire commercials you've seen with the tires that seal small cuts and keep going.

This advance has had the best application in plaza waterproofing projects. Removal of the existing soil and pavers, and the installation of new soil and pavers are all very expensive when compared with the actual waterproofing costs. Owners need the security of a long term waterproofing product maintaining long term water-tightness when investing in these costs. Hot Rubber waterproofing has established an excellent record in plaza applications. Time tested details are now in place for expansion joint, planter wall and various other applications.

The equipment used to install hot rubber correctly includes double jacketed kettles. These are critical to avoid over heating the hot rubber materials. Over heating can lead to loss of the unique physical properties properly installed hot rubber has. Lindman was one of the first to invest in these kettles at approximately $30,000 each, and we have several in each location. We install 100,000’s of square feet of hot rubber each year. Projects range from 1500 sf, to 50,000 sf, but each project receives the same dedication to detail.
