Brutal Wisconsin winters and the constantly changing seasons will wear and crack even the strongest concrete.

Parking structure maintenance is sometimes overlooked, due to their utilitarian nature and concrete construction. When they do need repair, parking decks present a unique challenge. Constant use and Wisconsin’s unpredictable weather causes natural deterioration of the concrete and expansion joints. To reduce damage and prevent a major catastrophe, parking structures must be maintained to stay in optimal condition. Rely on the Wisconsin masonry professionals at Cornerstone for all your parking structure repairs.

Common Signs and Causes of Parking Deck Failure
While most masonry and concrete repair experts recommend having your structure inspected once every two to three years, many parking decks go years without scheduled inspection. There are a number signs indicating a parking deck may be damaged or even failing.
Common indicators of a failing parking deck include:
- Leaching from cracks
- Sealant failure
- Exposed structural rebar
- Expansion joint failure
- Surface discoloration from rust
- Areas that sound hollow
Parking decks face more stresses than most normal structures. Parking decks are especially susceptible to environmental stresses and harsh weather conditions. Some causes of damage include:
- Vehicles tracking in salt and other chlorides
- Ice dams causing excess stress
- Water seeping into failed seals
- Rusted rebar cracking surface concrete
- Expanded joints
- Substandard inspection and maintenance
With no regulations governing parking deck inspection, owners can often find themselves suddenly facing costly damages. Repairs should be performed before they get out of hand. Trust the experienced parking deck repair specialists at Cornerstone Restoration for comprehensive repair of damaged parking decks before smaller issues become a larger problem.
