BARTEK International, Inc. focus on the Building Envelope providing sub-grade waterproofing for foundations, air barrier systems for waterproofing exterior walls and all types of roofing to accomplish thermal and moisture objectives.
Keeping your building from the effects of moisture and heat is an ongoing challenge. In addition to keeping the integrity of your building envelope, we can also restore, repair or replace siding, windows and doors.
With the advances in light gauge steel framing, changing the design slope and roof configuration of your building can be achieved. Pre-engineered trusses allow a wide range of design capabilities because of its weight to strength ratio. Converting that low sloped roof to a steep roof eliminate the problems with low sloped roofs and increases the life cycle cost by utilizing materials that have up to a 50 year life expectancy.
Pre-applied sheet membranes are very effective for blind-side waterproofing. The seams are either heat-welded, self-adhering or chemically bonded. The sheet membranes are designed to bond to concrete and isolate any moisture penetration.
Sodium Bentonite is a natural clay that expands when water contacts it making it an exceptional waterproofing material as it swells and fills all voids and gaps to keep water from infiltrating any structure.
Fluid applied waterproofing normally meant a coating that came out of a pail only. While that is true and the predominant method of application, hot-applied rubberized asphalt has gained acceptance throughout the industry as we see it being used frequently.
Asphaltic built-it roofing has been around for decades with the longest track record. Resilient, tough and multi-layered gives this roof system the ability to withstand the harshest elements and use. Hot-applied, cold-applied and torch applied are the three main methods of application.
The quality of PVC, TPO and EPDM membranes make these excellent choices for any roof. Professional application and quality of workmanship is a standard we adhere to on all projects.
Fluid-applied roof coatings have evolved from the use of acrylics, both reinforced and non-reinforced to high-solid silicones and poly-methyl-methacrylate or PMMA coatings. The primary use for roof coatings is to extend the life of your existing roof.
