The building envelope includes the materials that comprise the foundation, wall assembly, roofing systems, glazing, doors, and any other penetrations. The connections and compatibility between these elements is critical to ensure that the building envelope functions as intended. We specialize in caulking, membrane application, metal flashing and cladding.
Water intrusion and moisture entrapment can be the result of many factors. It can occur as a result caulking adhesion loss or cracking, improper installation or the wrong type of caulking chosen for an application. In some cases, it is a direct result of having no sealant at all. Most building designs are engineered to avoid moisture trapping and provide drainage to some extent. It’s important your contractor has adequate knowledge when choosing caulking materials. They also need to ensure compatibility with building materials and have experience in the application of these products.
The next line of defense behind your building’s siding or cladded finish is the envelope membrane. This can range from traditional building paper to rolled bitumen, and all hybrid membranes in between. Aging and/or minor changes and repairs to your exterior over time often lead to compromised envelope issues that in turn might cause significant damages.

Aluminum and steel flashing details assist a building’s exterior. One way it does this is by aiding in the deflection of wind-driven rain, hail and snow, all things we see quite often throughout the year in Calgary. Additionally, it allows for proper drainage, acting as a termination point between two or more materials which are not compatible.
Flashing and cladding add life and beautification to a wide variety of exterior applications, such as wooden window frames, deck facing and more, on a residential level. Commercial, industrial, institutional and residential structures often require a variety of flashing details, ranging from parapet flashings to window header flashings, sill flashings and skirt flashings.
