Renovation of façades in a residential complex in Laredo

The façades of the buildings in the Manila Residential Complex in Laredo have been renovated. The buildings needed renovating due to the deterioration of the slab faces built using brick-on-edge, where the bricks have become detached mainly due to water entering from the terraces. The water seeped through the point where the terrace meets the sill, and as the area is not waterproofed, the edge of the slab was soaked with water, the reinforcements became oxidised and the bricks detached.

In order to renovate the slab faces, ULMA Architectural Solutions has supplied special customized piecesmade in straight L, outside corner, inside corner and curved shapes. In total, 1800ml for the three buildings, in white. As well as 1800 ml of model MA copings.

Carbonation on the façades of buildings in coastal areas, such as Laredo, is an increasingly frequent problem, which is why ULMA’s polymer concrete was prescribed in the project, since they are waterproof, lightweight, flexible, adjustable on site, easy to fit, with no oxidisable elements and resistant to damp and saltpetre.
