Builder error led to wall leaking and damage in Dallas, Tx

At Shepherd Roofing and Renovations, we take great pride in our commitment to quality craftsmanship and attention to detail. Recently, we had the opportunity to showcase our expertise when we undertook a project that involved identifying and fixing significant gaps in a commercial apartment building, all stemming from builder errors.

When we were called in to assess the situation at this commercial apartment building, we quickly realized that the root cause of various issues was the presence of gaps that had been overlooked during the initial construction phase. These gaps were located in several crucial areas:

  1. Wall Siding Gaps: We found gaps between the wall siding panels, which compromised the building’s energy efficiency and allowed water infiltration.
  2. Coping Cap Seam Gaps: Gaps along the coping cap seam were causing water to seep into the building’s structure, potentially leading to structural damage.
  3. Corner Siding Gaps: Gaps in the corner siding were not only unsightly but also exposed the building to moisture-related problems.

To address these issues effectively, we decided to implement an approach that would seal all the gaps and ensure the building’s long-term durability. We chose to use Mule Hide Repair Hero flashing for several reasons:

  1. Mule Hide Repair Hero Flashing: Mule Hide Repair Hero flashing is a trusted solution known for its exceptional performance in sealing gaps and providing superior protection against water infiltration. Its durability and versatility made it an ideal choice for this project.
  2. Positive Drainage: We applied Mule Hide Repair Hero flashing along the flat exterior curb to provide positive drainage, ensuring that water would be directed away from the building, reducing the risk of future water-related issues.
  3. Sealing the Gaps: Our team meticulously sealed the gaps along the inside corners of the modified bitumen section over wood siding, the coping cap seams, wall fixtures over the patio, and roof penetrations using Mule Hide Repair Hero flashing. This not only eliminated existing gaps but also fortified the building against future problems.

After completing the project, the commercial apartment building not only looked more aesthetically pleasing but also gained essential protection against water infiltration and potential structural damage.

Our attention to detail and use of Mule Hide Repair Hero flashing ensured that the gaps would no longer be a cause for concern.
