Parking Garage Waterproofing

Waterproofing systems prevent water from getting into vulnerable areas of your garage, and they typically have a service life that’s less than that of your overall structure. That makes routine maintenance and replacement all the more important. You and your team can maximize your waterproofing systems and protect your facility from deterioration with regular inspection and maintenance of sealants, coatings and more.

Knowing when you need garage waterproofing services

Garage waterproofing failures happen when joint sealants, traffic coatings, sealers or expansion joints crack, chip or become brittle due to improper installation, damage or age. Maybe you’ve observed water pooling on your parking garage floor due to poor drainage or you’re battling pervasive leaks in several spots throughout your parking structure. These are signs that you should contact a partner, like StructureCare, that will inspect your garage and make long-term recommendations to help you fix the issue and avoid a larger one.

Types of garage waterproofing

Expansion joints & sealants
Parking garage expansion joints & sealants
Expansion joints allow your structure to expand and contract as temperatures change. This garage waterproofing feature, which includes compression seals, can protect the structure in areas where physical movement might damage joint sealants. Joint sealants help prevent water from entering vulnerable areas. Periodic interim maintenance and timely replacement is important to prolong their service life.
Parking garage sealers
Sealers are a penetrating waterproofing solution that’s applied over an entire area. They soak into the concrete and exist below the surface.
Parking garage floor coatings
Coatings sit on the surface of your structure. They are subject to wear and tear from winter maintenance, and they reduce visibility of the concrete below the coating.

It can be challenging to determine what type of waterproofing is best for your parking garage structure. Take a deeper dive into waterproofing methods on the StructureCare blog.
