Body - Saving a Luxury Penthouse Suite from Costly Water DaA contractor in Atlanta was recently called in to seal off a rain-induced ceiling leak in a new construction high-rise penthouse suite. Sealing off the water intrusion from the roof above was not an option, due to the rooftop swimming pool directly above the penthouse. So, they had to get into the ceiling from the interior of the suite and repair the leak from the underside.

Powerful Polymers

The crew on this job injected Spetec PUR F400, a water-reactive, hydrophobic, flexible, single component polyurethane resin. This product is ideal for sealing off active leaks in cracks.

Painless Procedures

Leaking concrete structures can be permanently repaired with concrete crack injection & curtain wall procedures using water-activated polyurethane foam. Pressure injection of these liquid polyurethane resins forces the material into leaking cracks or behind leaking walls depending on the application. After the polyurethane injection is complete, the polyurethane resin rapidly reacts with water to form a watertight seal.

Rapid Results

In this case, the leak was shut down in less than two minutes. This all went down literally right before the new tenant was scheduled to begin moving in. (No pressure there!)
