Expansion joints are separations designed to relieve stress on a building's materials and structure when it moves. Movement in a variety of types of buildings and parking structures is common and happens regularly due to how concrete expands and contracts under changing thermal conditions. Building separations are typically filled with expansion joint systems to ensure a complete building enclosure, waterproofing when needed, and overall general serviceability of the building or structure when complete.
Not only does Barrier Technologies understand how important properly installed expansion joints are to a building or structure's long-term integrity, but also how intricate an expansion joint system installation project can be for an entire construction team, and how costly it can be for the client when it's done wrong.

We pride ourselves on providing a professional and quality installation experience that keeps to your project's schedule, as well as our ability to assist with troubleshooting solutions that are in line with the job site's conditions when unexpected issues arise.
