Expansion joint sealing is important to provide the flexibility of movement in the adjoining materials, without leaving open joints or cracks, which can hasten deterioration of the surfaces around the joint line. There has been much discussion around the globe and in the media in recent months regarding the changing environment and how that is impacting on weather patterns and temperatures. The UK’s climate has always been unpredictable but now it seems we are experiencing greater extremes, which ultimately puts more pressure on external surfaces. Therefore, cutting and then sealing expansion joints is becoming ever more critical to the longevity of the structure, whether it is in a car park, on a bridge or roadway or on some element of a building. National Drilling Services is well established in the construction industry with many clients using us as their ‘go-to’ supplier for drilling, sawing, joint sealing and demolition services.
Why use National Drilling Services for your expansion joint sealing requirements?
The team at National Drilling Services is proud to be the market leaders in providing services to the construction industry. It is our philosophy to always provide a reliable and professional service which is hassle-free. What’s more we do this around the clock, 24/7, to fit with your site access restrictions and time schedules. Our trained operatives are capable of working in any environment and are very helpful. We install all major expansion joint sealants from the main manufacturers including Fosroc and Permaban as well as many more. When sealing an expansion joint the National Drilling Services operatives will first seal the joint with tape and then inject it with resin.
National Drilling Services also provides crack repairs to concrete surfaces. Perhaps cracks have appeared because no expansion joints were originally cut. More often than not the UK’s concrete surfaces have to tolerate a wide variety of temperatures, variable humidity levels as well as an array of different weathers. All of this puts stress on the materials used as they expand and contract accordingly. On top of that there is then the usage factor which may mean wear and tear and repeatedly being subjected to heavy weights or pressures. If there are no gaps to enable expansion and contraction to happen, invariably cracks will occur. To find out more about how our expert operatives repair cracks such as these take a look at our expansion joint sealing page.
