Signs Your Parking Garage Needs Repair and Restoration

Commercial building owners and managers sometimes forget the importance of their parking garage:  it’s a critical part of your business that makes a vital first impression on customers and provides a safe, convenient place to park. Suppose your garage is showing signs of wear or damage. In that case, taking steps toward restoration or preventative maintenance is imperative to avoid costly issues such as disrupting your tenants, increasing repair costs, and safety concerns.

At Benson & Falgout, our team of professionals has extensive experience in all aspects of parking garage restoration and maintenance. We can help solve any current problems with your parking garage and prevent future problems.

What Causes Parking Garage Damage?

Weather, water, shifting soil, and the sheer weight of vehicles are some of the most common causes of damage to parking garages. Following is more detailed information about potential problems and signs to look for in your garage.

Water Leaks

If there is leaking water in your garage, it’s a sure sign that repairs are needed. One of the most obvious signs of water leakage is rusting of any exposed metal or rust stains on the garage walls. If water leaks are left unattended, damages (and costs for repairs) will continue to increase.

Water Ponding

Areas of standing water (ponding) in your garage are guaranteed to cause damage to the concrete over time. Ponding can be easily fixed by installing a drain or surface overlay – but if you don’t get repairs done quickly, you may have significant issues in the future.

Damaged Concrete

Cracks in concrete or pieces of concrete detaching from the structure (delamination or spalling) are signs of serious problems. Left unrepaired, these areas of weakness in your garage will lead to significant structural damage by allowing water to reach the reinforcing steel of the structure.

Exposed Rebar

Anytime that rebar is visible anywhere in your garage, you need to have repairs made immediately. Cracked concrete allows water to intrude and is a common cause of exposed rebar. The damage will quickly spread if left unrepaired, and your repair costs will skyrocket.
