Concrete is a sturdy and durable material that can stand the test of time for up to twenty years if it is well-maintained. However, as your commercial concrete parking lot begins to age, you may begin to notice cracks and warping of the concrete. While some of these problems can be considered minor cosmetic issues, a site visit from G&M Services can determine whether your concrete parking lot simply needs to be repaired or demolished.
After the first year or two of a concrete parking lot being poured, minor cracks will potentially appear. While these concrete cracks might make you feel dismayed, there’s a reasonable explanation for them. Cracks in the concrete can be caused by settling of the foundation or seasonal temperature changes, which can cause the concrete to thermally crack. While these concrete cracks can be unsightly, they are simple cosmetic fixes that a concrete contractor can perform a surface repair on.
Warping and Curling
Warping within a concrete parking lot can appear to curl upwards or downwards, resulting in a curled appearance. This is a more serious, foundational issue that isn’t considered cosmetic. The problem with concrete parking lots beginning to warp is that they have the potential to become a more serious issue, like a sinkhole. In cases of concrete parking lots warping, the concrete parking lot will need to be demolished in order to fix the foundational problems.
