Parking structures are faced with a unique set of challenges and considerations. Designed for decades of daily vehicular traffic, they endure prolonged exposure to the harshest elements, including snow and ice, chemicals and abrasion, thermal movement, and demanding load conditions. Structures must also be safe for users, aesthetically pleasing and complimentary to adjacent building architecture.
Unprotected concrete exposed to rainfall, freeze-thaw, carbonation and deicing salts will deteriorate. “Passive” protection originally provided by the cement paste around the reinforcing steel will be destroyed, and unseen corrosion of embedded steel will occur, often resulting in spalls, cracks and leaks.
