Did you know that the first product W. R. MEADOWS introduced, way back in 1926, was ASPHALT EXPANSION JOINT? Our founders pioneered expansion joint technology, knowing that concrete expands and contracts with temperature and moisture changes. As the temperature rises or the moisture content of the concrete increases, expansion takes place. As the temperature drops, the concrete will contract. The provision to accommodate movement at predetermined locations with proper joint applications prevents the development of stresses that could rupture the concrete. Our company was founded on the principle of protecting concrete from damage – that’s why we’re known as the Guardian of the Pavement! And that’s why we developed expansion joint materials to help prevent concrete damage and keep your concrete safe and sound.
To this day, almost 90 years later, we still offer ASPHALT EXPANSION JOINT as well as a host of other expansion joint products that meet specific project needs and ASTM specifications. Our products are made of recycled material, are produced locally in the U.S., and have been used throughout the world. When you think of concrete expansion joints, you should think of W. R. MEADOWS.
Even though we’ve expanded and diversified our product offerings to include building envelope materials, concrete curing and sealing compounds, and concrete restoration products, our expansion joint products are still near and dear to our hearts and a key component of the building materials we offer.
We understand that some of you may not be familiar with our concrete expansion joint products. If so, we think our updated brochure will be of service.
