Service Type:Remedial Waterproofing
Scope:Roof replacement, brick repair, concrete patching, tuck pointing, elastomeric coating, waterproofing, joint sealants and concrete sealer
Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing successfully renovated the old Sears Roebuck Building, built in 1914, that has been transformed into a mixed-use center with retail, over 450 loft-style apartments and a small adjacent office portion that houses the new downtown offices of the Dallas County Community College District (DCCCD).
After being unoccupied and unmaintained for many years, the space had numerous interior concrete spalls, years of exposed concrete and metal lintels that were deteriorated, a roof that was comparable to Swiss cheese, and 88-year-old wax-based sealants at all key waterproofing joints. Turner Construction brought Chamberlin on to the project to perform an extremely comprehensive scope of restoration services to make the building useable and enhance its architectural significance as a historical registered building. For Chamberlin's hard work on this building they received many awards.
