Parking Garage Caulking
Water is a major source of corrosion and deterioration in parking garages, especially in colder environments where freezing occurs. Caulking, sometimes called joint sealant, protects vulnerable areas from water and harmful de-icing chemicals. Proper maintenance and replacement of these garage waterproofing elements is often less costly than repairing the significant deterioration that failure can cause.
Knowing when you need caulking services
Aging and exposure to the elements deteriorate sealing caulk. As joint sealants reach the end of their service life, they become less elastic and start to dry out, especially if exposed to the sun. Improper installation, damage from winter maintenance and even abrasions from dirt can also cause failure in caulking. A comprehensive inspection will help identify this type of damage and its root cause so you can address the problem immediately to avoid larger-scale repairs.

Parking Structure Deterioration Guide
A parking garage is subject to stress from the first day concrete is poured and the structure is erected. Without proper maintenance, deterioration can reduce the structure’s service life by up to one-third — and result in unplanned downtime, exposure to increased risk, unexpected maintenance and increased costs.
When It Comes to Parking Structure Repairs, Don’t Wait
There are many factors that may make your building’s maintenance needs different from those of the parking garage just down the street. But all garages require some level of upkeep to ensure they’re safe, functional and able to be maintained cost-effectively.
