Parking Garage Repairs and Maintenance

Because a parking garage is used by so many people round the clock, parking garage repair work must be completed as quickly as possible to minimize the inconvenience. Limited space in downtown city cores further presses the importance of efficient repair work, as their down time can cause significant issues for any businesses in the area. This makes fast parking garage repair work a major issue for city governments everywhere.

Every parking structure needs to have a regular maintenance program with respected contractors that can preserve the structural integrity while preventing damage to the concrete.

Preserving Structural Integrity of Concrete

A parking garage, more than most buildings, is subject to extraordinary stress from a large number of vehicles, temperature changes, moisture and heavy loads. Regardless of the quality of maintenance, the structures will require parking garage repair earlier than most other buildings. Parking garage repair may encompass structural garage repairs and repairs to concrete beams, ceilings, slabs and floors.

Whenever surface concrete delaminates and spalling occurs, good parking garage repair requires that the concrete should be resurfaced at least 3 inches beyond the area of de-lamination. If any reinforcing steel is exposed, the concrete should be chipped out at least ¾ below the rebar. Patch edges should be saw-cut, taking care not to damage the rebar. All exposed surfaces in the course of the repair work should be sandblasted clean, painted with protective coating then recast using concrete patching material.

To protect concrete slabs and concrete beams from moisture and chloride, all cracks and joints must be properly sealed at all times. A regular inspection of all sealed cracks and joints must be conducted to make sure that the sealing is intact. The application of vehicular grade waterproofing after all parking garage repair work is necessary to prevent a recurrence of the damage.
