Waterproofing and Intumescent Coatings

Waterproofing & Intumescent Fireproofing

Until the mid-1990s, R. Brothers, Inc. was a dedicated painting company. When environmental standards for sealants changed, we found that the newly formulated, environmentally safer products were not adhering to many paint coatings. In response to this, we began waterproofing and caulking to protect the quality of our paint job.

Since then, R. Brothers, Inc. has become an expert in all aspects of interior and exterior waterproofing. This includes sheet membrane applications, coatings, air barriers and all aspects of remedial waterproofing as well as waterproofing for foundations above and below grade. We can apply intumescent coatings for steel and wood surfaces. Our experience ranges from large-scale waterproofing of major commercial and high-density housing projects under construction to remedial waterproofing of historic buildings.

We specialize in:

  • Epoxy Pressure Injection
  • Concrete Sealers
  • Deck Coatings
  • Fluid Applied Air Barriers
  • Vehicular Coatings
  • Caulking, Sealant, and Urethane Expansion Joint
  • Negative Side Waterproofing
  • Urethane Injection/Leak Repair
  • Air Barriers


Traffic Deck Coating System
This is a cold applied Traffic Deck Coating System designed for waterproofing concrete slabs and protecting occupied areas underneath from water damage. Additionally, the System will protect the concrete from damaging effects of water, deicing salts, chemicals, gasoline, oils, and antifreeze.
Fluid-Applied Vapor Permeable Air Barrier Membrane
This is an example of a Fluid-Applied Vapor Permeable Air Barrier Membrane which is a monolithic elastomeric membrane designed to be applied to exterior above-grade walls to seal wall assemblies and prevent air infiltration/exfiltration, while remaining permeable to the passage of water vapor. R. Brothers is ABAA Certified Applicator of Air Barriers.
