Watchdog Parking Deck Protection Program
Do you have peace of mind when it comes to your parking deck?
Timely Parking Deck Maintenance is one of the most overlooked areas in the upkeep of a facility. Preventative maintenance, or protecting your investment by preventing problems before they occur, is the most sensible maintenance approach to structures. Parking structures, regardless of age and type of construction, require a comprehensive preventative maintenance program.
Parking Decks will encounter problems caused by exposure to de-icing salts, weathering, substandard or improper material, poor workmanship, structural movement, and physical stress. A well-planned maintenance program includes a walk-through survey, during which a visual inspection of the entire garage is performed. The survey will look for surface deterioration at the top and bottom surfaces of floors; cracks in floors, beams, columns or walls; evidence of water leakage or staining through or on floors, walls or other structural elements; and rusting of exposed steel.
Parking facilities should be inspected by an expert in parking structure design and restoration to identify any potentially serious conditions that may affect the performance or user safety of the structure.
