Firestopping is not just one material or item, but a complete fire protection system of various materials and components that seal openings and joints in fire-resistance rated wall and/or floor assemblies. Materials and components used may include mineral fibers, intumescents, cementitious mortars, silicone, urethane, firestop pillows, and rubber compounds.
GDA Contractors has the experience, training, and certifications to properly install firestopping in a variety of building types and construction assemblies. We are Factory Mutual (FM) 4991 Certified Contractors, undergo yearly auditing for proper installation, record keeping, and quality control processes, and work closely with respected manufacturers such as Hilti, STI, Rector Seal, 3M, and Tremco.
GDA Contractors are experts in the waterproofing world. Our projects benefit greatly when they are involved in the preconstruction process as they support us by providing valuable constructability and pricing information. During the construction phase, they are a reliable trade partner with a strong focus on schedule and quality. It is always very comforting to know when GDA Contractors is working on our construction projects.

SSI and the GDA companies have worked together over 30 years . We have always valued the good communication and business practices set forward by the management group at GDA.

Our largest liability on any project is water intrusion. I trust GDA Contractors to provide accurate fair pricing and perform the work correctly every time. Using a quality contractor like GDA provides me a peace of mind on every project they are a part of.
GDA has consistently been raising the bar for the waterproofing industry and for their GC clients, through industry advocacy, sharing of lessons learned, excellent scopes at bid time, and through their informative “Caulktail Hour”s.
