In most cases window leaks are associated with faulty window head or building façade flashings or faulty cavity wall construction. Schnell Contractors can remove the affected area of masonry directly over the window lintel and install a new flashing system, vents and weeps to properly waterproof the cavity wall and provide a watertight condition.
On some building façade cases, the building may be so old it requires historical preservation techniques to adhere to aesthetics. Over the years, we have developed a removal method by which 90% of the removed masonry is salvaged and reused. Additional replacement units are stained to match to provide a completely aesthetic repaired finish.
Masonry flashing details can vary depending on existing conditions. Schnell Contractors, Inc. designs all flashing systems using details and guidelines developed by the International Masonry Institute.
When you need flashing repair or replacement, please contact Schnell Contractors, Inc. You can count on us for professional service from start to finish on all types of flashing replacement and flashing repair projects.
