Parking structures are constantly exposed to potentially damaging contaminants. Grease, oil stains, de-icing salts, carbon, acid rain and other contaminants accumulate throughout the year—which can rapidly lead to the corrosion of reinforcing steel and severe concrete deterioration. These elements infiltrate the concrete surface and lead to advance corrosion of the steel reinforcement, cracks, and debonding within the concrete. The heavy load imposed by a large number of vehicles, wet weather, hot temperatures and extreme cold, all contribute to the damage of your garage structure.
Concrete Strengthening is a safe and secure method of extending the longevity of a structure by applying strengthening systems. Over time, a structure’s purpose can change, loads can increase, building standards may evolve, or historical structures may require reinforcement.
Undertaking a parking garage restoration project can be a major disruption for your tenants and guests so we put an emphasis on planning and effective communication to minimize the impact and disruption. A consistent maintenance plan designed specifically for your structure that incorporates all the various items that impact the life cycle of the garage is vital to the long-term health of a parking garage. This will eliminate the need for repeated repairs or major structural improvements.
