Large-scale garages and parking areas are part of many commercial and general construction services. A big concern for these areas is safety. How can you keep these large areas well-protected, especially from rain or leaks? At Allied Construction Services, we offer traffic-bearing membranes as a solution. Before you can enjoy them, however, there are a few important things to remember.
Before you can coat the area, you have to consider the potential sources of damage. Interior and exterior parking places have higher exposure to the elements, compared to closed buildings or roofs. However, areas that hold the air conditioning and open space can be more difficult to deal with as these have a higher exposure to moisture, making them potential leak sources.
Aside from deciding which areas to focus on, you also need to know what your waterproofing system is dealing with. Moisture carries more than just water, with elements such as chlorine and hydroxide mixed in. This can be a corrosive combination that can cause expansive cracks to form.
There is also the issue of what form of moisture to worry about. Water is an obvious sign, along with hail and snow, but vapor can also be a problem. This can make it tougher to keep your garage or parking area waterproof, in the sense that there’s no immediately visible water to track.
How Traffic Membranes Help
