All About Water Table Sills
Are you familiar with water table sills? They’re quite a common fixture on today’s buildings – so much so that it’s likely you’ve seen them on all sorts of buildings but never known what they were called. In this article, we’ll go over the exact purpose of water table sills and why they may be one of the most important additions to make for your home or place of business.
The primary purpose of water table sills is for the protection of the building’s surface. The average water table sill can be found attached to window exteriors, as well as along the edges of exterior half-walls and on the outsides of windows.
When it rains, the materials the building is made from are left vulnerable to moisture. As the rain patters down, the water left behind can do nothing but soak into whatever it comes into contact with, including the sides of buildings as well as any cracks and crevices hiding along the surface. The job of water table sills is to collect rainwater and allow it to run off from its surface in a manner that is safer for your home or commercial building.
In addition to its practical uses, water table sills also provide noticeable aesthetic benefits to any structure it is outfitted to. Most water table sills are made from gravel and other stone-based materials, which allows them to look great no matter what type of building they’re attached to. Many businesses offer full customization of your water table sills so you can further make sure that your building or home gains the protection it needs without sacrificing the aesthetic you’re aiming for.
