COMMERCIAL

Over 30 Years
Experience

For thirty years, Beaches Construction has specialized in repair issues that are unique to large structures like condominiums, apartment complexes, and hotels. Work of this type requires extensive skill and experience and should be trusted to only the best of professionals.

Ken Karr, our Certified General Contractor, (Fla CGC #1516934) in Panama City, FL, and his crew are fully trained and equipped to handle the worst cosmetic and structural damage the Gulf of Mexico can dish out. Our work speaks for itself, and here is a sampling of some of the more common commercial building repair issues your facility may have.

Spalling
(Swells & Breaks)

Spalling is the result of water leaking behind brick, concrete or natural stone and forcing the surface to peel, pop out or flake off. Spalling is a serious problem that can result in severe structural damage to your building. Rebar and other structural components can rust and corrode, compromising the strength of the structure and allowing more air and water in to cause more damage. If you see the siding of your building cracking, bulging, or breaking off, you have spalling, and should call us right away.

Foundations and Structural Repair

Foundation damage is common on the coast, where we literally have shifting sand beneath our buildings, and can be a frightening and substantial threat to your structure. Repair involves removing damaged foundation material and installing new reinforced beams. This is delicate and crucial work. If not done properly, your building is at risk of severe damage. Foundation damage is usually caused by water, which undermines the concrete and breaks the beam. Also, water attracts termites, which eat wooden reinforcements and cause foundation damage.

WATERPROOFING

Elastomeric Coatings

Elastomeric is a membrane coating that will waterproof exterior stucco, masonry and concrete buildings. Elastomeric coatings bridge hairline cracks and stop wind driven rain. Ordinary paint does not have this waterproofing effect, and can result in water leaks and water damage. Again, the professionals at Beaches Construction can advise you on just the right exterior coating for your particular needs.

Sealers

Clear sealers are another great way to preserve the natural look of wood, brick and decorative concrete. These can also be used on horizontal areas like decks and docks. Once applied, you will never know the sealer is there, but the water will, and won’t be able to infiltrate your home.

Deck Coating

Beaches Construction also installs urethane deck coatings for balconies, parking decks and garages, and overhead decks with living space underneath

 

Epoxy Injections

Beaches Construction uses epoxy injection to permently stop water leaks in concrete. Epoxy Injection is great for cracks in swimming pools, concrete decks, parking garages, bridges, DOT projects.

Caulking

Caulking is vital to the water proofing in Panama City. Proper caulking between all dissimilar materials and different elevations will stop most water intrusion issues on most buildings. But did you know there are dozens of caulks out there, each for a special set of conditions? Off-the-shelf caulk will not do in our extreme environment. Beaches Construction uses just the right caulk for your specific situation, ensuring a lasting and effective repair. Special bond breakers, under the caulking, are also a simple but necessary component of a great caulk joint, and we go this extra step to get it done right.

Condominium Envelopes

A Condo Envelope is the complete exterior of your comdominum and Beaches Construction works on the complete envelope from top to bottom with all type of repairs, new construction, alterations. We will replace windows and doors, walls and stucco, concrete decks, railings, and painting to name a few.

RESIDENTIAL

Water Damage in Bay County

Are you tired of “how-to” home repair? Are you ready for a home repair contractor to take the wheel and make sure your home gets the care and attention it deserves? Beaches construction is this area’s leader in home remodeling, repair, renovation, and improvement. Like our name says, we specialize in coastal home repair and remodeling and understand better than any other the unique needs this type of construction has.

 

Living along the Gulf of Mexico is wonderful, but the conditions can be harsh and damaging to your home. We have particular repair issues here that need to be handled by a residential construction company that understands those conditions and is able to protect your biggest investment from our weather and climate.

 

Water Leaks =
Water Damage

By far the number one problem for homes in the Panama City area is water damage. Because we have such unusual conditions on the Gulf, our homes take a beating and can let water invade. Water can leak into the tiniest crevice and, if unchecked, will cause devastating and expensive damage.

It takes a trained eye to discover where water might be leaking into your home, and sometimes the damage goes unnoticed until there is a stain on the ceiling or a puddle on the window sill. If you see any symptoms of water infiltration in your home, any at all, call us immediately. A small leak can be hiding a huge water damage issue.


We have many ways to waterproof your home, and we don’t just do “patch and paint” repair. Beaches will ensure that your home is water tight and protected from the elements – from the ground up.

Dry Rot

Contrary to its name, dry rot is caused by water as well. If wood is exposed to water for a long period of time it will eventually rot. Rot acts like a cancer, affecting new wood as it spreads from one piece to another. Beaches Construction is your solution to Dry Rot Repair in Bay County.

Stucco Repair

Once cracks begin in stucco, you can quickly end up with water damage. Nip it in the bud by calling Beaches Construction as soon as you notice it. We will match the color, repair the mesh, apply new stucco, level it out, and apply the texture to match the rest of your home.

Termite Damage Repair

Termites cause billions of dollars of damage to homes every year, and we on the Gulf Coast are especially vulnerable. Termites are attracted to wet wood, and with the soggy conditions in our area, it only takes one water leak to invite the pests into your home. Termite damage can undermine the structural stability of any home or property. They will eat enough wood to weaken structural elements and cause them to fail. Termites follow water into the house in many ways, and the best cure is to waterproof your house from the ground up to stop any water intrusion in the first place. Beaches Construction is your solution to Termite Damage Repair in Bay County.

Window Replacement

We replace and repair windows and doors of all shapes and sizes. From the pane to the frame we can make it look like new again, and make it match the rest of your home.
