Elastomeric Coatings is a flexible waterproofing system. The finish looks like paint but is thicker and will allow the substrate to crack underneath up to a 1/8 inch without any visual appearance. These coatings are normally used on those projects that have had water penetration problems or severe cracking. It is important to use a contractor familiar with the products as preparation is extremely important. Building owners can receive up to 10 year labor and material warranties for product performance.
