Commercial Parking Garage Maintenance, Restoration and Repairs
Since parking garages often are put under heavy stress by vehicles in hot, cold, and wet climates, wear can happen quickly. Concrete can crack and crumble, steel supports can rust, and paint can chip and fade. Ignored short-term damage quickly turns into a long-term problem. LRT works to restore parking garages to its original glory and keep things safe and appealing to customers. One of the primary drivers of concrete structure deterioration is road salts. Chlorides attack reinforcing steel and cause oxidization or rust. This is an electrochemical reaction that causes the reinforcing steel to lose load capacity and also to expand in size and damage the surrounding concrete.
LRT has extensive experience with repairing commercial structures. Parking garage repairs can be extensive and time consuming, so our workers are trained to quickly deliver high-quality results.
