Winter Weather Takes a Toll on Parking Decks! Restore Vehicular Structures for Safety and Longevity.
Parking structures are often part of daily life when living in a metropolitan area and are utilized by all sizes of vehicles and pedestrians, but weather, water, traffic, and age can wear on these structures – reducing their safety. Evaluating your parking structure for structural integrity, sufficient waterproofing, and proper sealing and markings is the first step in ensuring your parking garage is both safe and long-lasting.
Over time, weather, water, traffic, and age can deteriorate a parking structure’s interior finishes and reinforcing steel. Freezing and thawing creates superficial and deeper structural damage. Moisture can create failures in the structure, ornamental features, and surface integrity. Looking for obvious cracks, holes, moisture damage, and wear from over-use is the first step in evaluating your parking facility to discover if repairs are needed.
A quality sealant can provide a skid-resistant finish for vehicular and pedestrian safety, and the seamless installation of a sealant extends the life of the structure by protecting it against the elements for many years. Sealants come in a wide selection of colors, so re-sealing a parking garage can also add a professional look, as well as increased visibility of safety markings for driving, parking, walking, and emergency directives. Many sealants can be cleaned with commercial grade cleaning solutions, allowing you to keep the facility in pristine condition even as it ages.
Not Just for Parking Garages?
Vehicular sealants are great for parking garages, decks, and ramps, but their use is not limited to above ground parking structures. Waterproofing sealants can also be used for stadiums, heliports, driveways, plaza decks, and mechanical rooms. If you have a space needing waterproofing, there is a sealant available to help meet that need.
Ready to Apply a Sealant?
Relying on an experienced and qualified team of technicians for the installation of vehicular sealants is always the best plan. Years of experience working with sealant products is vital to ensure that all waterproofing and safety systems are considered during installation. A qualified technician will take into account a sealant’s tensile and tear properties, as well as the local climate, when selecting the best product for a project. Once installation begins, all other aspects of the waterproofing system should be considered, including sealant joints, flashings, deck-to-wall transitions, drains, penetrations, and terminations.
