Expansion Joint Replacement and Installation

Everything moves, even concrete. Keep your commercial buildings and structures sound from earthquakes and changing temperatures with expansion joint systems. Team Cam can help with every step of the expansion joint process, from start to seal. Team Cam has consistently and professionally installed expansion joint systems on buildings, bridges, sidewalks, parking decks, and more. Whether it’s installing a long expansion joint or cutting joints into concrete, they will evaluate, consult, and assist with completing your joint project concerns.

An expansion joint—in commercial building construction and engineering—is a mid-structure separation designed to relieve stress on building materials caused by building movement induced by:

  • Contraction caused by temperature changes (thermal expansion)
  • Sway caused by wind
  • Seismic events
  • Static load deflection
  • Live load deflection

Expansion joints are designed to relieve stress on the materials surrounding it. They are used to accommodate expected movements of the structure in an effort to bridge the gaps and restore building assembly functions while accommodating expected movements.

Because the joint bisects the entire structure, it marks a gap through all building assemblies, including walls, decks, plazas or split-slab concourses, foundation floors and walls, roofs, planters, and green roofs; fire-rated demising walls and floors, and interior floors.  This gap must be filled to restore the waterproofing, fireproofing, soundproofing, air barrier, roof membrane, trafficable surface and other functions of the building elements it bisects.
