Precast concrete needs regular cleaning, maintenance, and eventually will need expert restoration services. All concrete is porous which means it will absorb moisture, eventually stain, and is susceptible to spalling if the moisture expands. The best way to prevent all of this from happening is to regularly clean and maintain the exterior of your building and hire a restoration company at the first sign of staining.
Why You Need to Hire a Precast Expert
Staining is one of the first signs that the sealant used on the exterior of your building is starting to fail. All precast concrete should be sealed. Sealing precast prevents moisture penetration and so much more. There are many types of sealants on the market and only an expert will be able to choose the right one for your property. We approach the process of selecting a sealer by considering what sealers have previously been used. For instance, if silanes were used in the past, a silicone sealer might be a more suitable option as it offers superior surface-level protection and helps prevent future biological growth. If anti-graffiti or color-enhancing sealers were used in the past, it could be best to stick with a similar sealer for the continued benefits those sealers offer.
Precast Restoration Services Process
Precast restoration services include cleaning and making repairs. The final step is to apply the sealer. Depending on the needs and construction of the building we can perform power washing services or low-pressure washing services using cleaning chemicals. Our restoration exports then make any needed repairs. If you’ve stayed on top of your regular maintenance, then repairs are usually very minor thanks to the robust nature of precast concrete. If there is significant water damage then more time consuming and costly repair are needed, especially if the substrate is damaged. We also look at any waterproofing needs at this time. In most cases it is better to apply caulking before any protective coating goes on.
Benefits of Regular Cleaning, Routine Maintenance, and Precast Restoration Services
Cleaning your building regularly is the best way to check the condition of your exterior envelope. Routine maintenance will prolong the life of your building and make it an overall nicer place for your tenants. Precast restoration services maximize the effectiveness of both of those actions. Benefits include:
- Protects precast concrete from airborne chemicals
- Prevents dirt and grime from sticking to the precast
- Prevents blotchy surface darkening when it rains
- Prevents mold and mildew growth on the precast
- Prevents precast from cracking and spalling
