Waterproofing agents are frequently oil-based, and can be rolled or sprayed on masonry surfaces. We can achieve this by using the latex coating, sealants, and membranes, installed by expert technicians and covered by strong warranties. Because waterproofing is so important to the life of any building and each of possess unique challenges, our focus is on providing the highest standard of quality every step of the way, devising a custom-tailored approach to each project on a schedule that works for you.

Window Sills ReplacementWindow Sil Replacement

Window Sills not only increase the curb appeal of your windows, but are also designed to prevent water damage around windows. Sills are designed with a slope running from back to front to force water away from your windows, preventing water from accumulating and leaking into your windows. Proper Window sill replacement required removal of 3 courses of old bricks, removing the Window Sill, install peel-n-stick waterproofing membrane, and place new Window Sill with proper slope then installing new bricks on the facade. Expedite provides services to professionally install and replace all types of window sills.

Window Lintels Replacement

A Window lintel is the L-shaped metal steel support located over every window. The perimeter of a window frame is not strong enough for the weight of the brick facade. The purpose of the lintel is to support the bricks facade and waterproof the wall. Proper Window Lintels replacement required removal of 3 courses of old bricks, removing the Window Lintels, install peel-n-stick waterproofing membrane, install new Window Lintels then installing new bricks on the facade.

Window CaulkingCaulking

Caulking is used to seal gaps between masonry surfaces, such as brick or stone, and other architectural elements, including windows and doors frames, decorative hardware or lighting fixtures. Caulking is most often applied with a gun, and is available in butyl, latex or customized formulations. The color of caulk is selected to match the surfaces surrounding the application site. When applied, the caulking gun is inserted in the gap to be filled. Caulking material is then injected into the void to seal the opening.

Tuck PointingTuck-Pointing

Tuck-pointing becomes mandatory when mortar joints have cracked, flaked, or disintegrated due to the abrasive effects of the elements. The first step is to prepare the mortar joint by grinding it out to a minimum depth of 1/2″ or until sound mortar is reached. Once the joint is ground out it is tuck-pointed with new mortar in a color to match the existing as close as possible. After the applied mortar is thumbprint hard the joint is tooled to form a concave profile for a watertight seal.


Grouting is used to seal the spaces between masonry installations such as tile or terra cotta. Grout may be colored to blend with the masonry materials, or can be used to create contrast within the masonry design. Grout is typically applied by filling the joints with material and then toweling it out over the adjoining tile or terra cotta. Once the grout has set, a craftsman returns to the area that was grouted and removes any excess material from the face of the installation. As grout is frequently porous, it must be sealed once it is completely dry to protect it from dirt infiltration.

Exterior Waterproofing In NYCIs it worth investing in? Is it affordable?

Simply put, yes. Waterproofing is an industry standard at this point. A home without proper waterproofing may be subject to internal damages which subject its inhabitants to uncomfortable conditions. Although the majority of waterproofing jobs are done during the initial construction of the property repairs, and upgrades are not uncommon. These repairs, installs, and upgrades are very affordable today and are highly recommended for anyone who suffers from a leak or two. What is important however is that you choose the right contractor for the job. When dealing with a leak or breach of the infrastructure time is of the essence. Water can pose a serious threat to the well-being of your home or business and if it goes untreated it could cause you further maintenance costs down the line.
