When paired with limestone, sandstone, terra cotta and other cast stone ornamental elements, Kemper System waterproofing membrane provides a perfect complement along with excellent water absorption prevention. Kemper System products can be installed as through-wall flashing to restore virtually any architectural element and substrate.
In addition, the waterproofing membrane withstands the dimensional changes associated with dissimilar materials and offers excellent protection for cornices, ledges and water tables without compromising aesthetics. Kemper's aggregate surfacing and colored quartz blend with transparent finish can flawlessly Imitate and preserve the original look of the building or structure.
A long-term ponding water condition in the 180,000 sq.ft. internal box gutter system created leaks that resulted in rotting of the ornamental façade design elements. Waterproofing the gutter was a critical component of the exterior restoration of the Art Museum.
Remove the existing gutter lining and reconstruct the underlying gutter substrate. Kemperol membrane was installed, extending from below the original glazed ceramic roofing tile, completely lining the box gutter, and terminating at the edge of the façade. The existing ornamental design elements were preserved over 95% of the building perimeter.
