Innovative Engineering Helps Owners Protect Parking Garages and Structures

By: Innovative Engineering Inc.
ATLANTA - June 21, 2022 - PRLog -- A parking structure provides an essential service. Whether your parking structure is a multi-level garage or a few below-grade levels under a high-rise building, proactive condition assessment and diligent maintenance are imperative.

If problems are ignored, the harsh environment in garages, including corrosive deicing chemicals, freeze-thaw cycling, and the stress of thousands of vehicles traversing the deck, will quickly accelerate deterioration into hazardous conditions.

Did you know a protective coating in your parking structure can keep your facility performing well and save money? The right coating can reduce your maintenance over time by keeping your surfaces clean, good-looking, and intact.

They can also safeguard your building's interior and exterior from the elements and mishaps that can occur because of constant vehicle traffic.

Water is the number 1 cause of parking structure deterioration. Water-saturated concrete can freeze, expand, and spall. Combined with oxygen, water can also cause corrosion of the concrete reinforcing. Exposure to deicing salts accelerates this process. As reinforcing steel expands as it rusts, this process also leads to concrete spalling. Spalled concrete provides less cover or protection of the reinforcing which leads to further (and accelerated) deterioration if not repaired in a timely manner.
