Making your parking garage’s old concrete look new

Every commercial property owner understands the importance of first impressions. Your building isn’t just a structure; it’s the face of your business. Over time, however, wear and tear, weather exposure, and the natural aging process can affect the appearance and integrity of commercial structures.

The first thing many of your customers will see is your parking garage. So what can you do to make the older concrete look new?


Before any restoration can take place, the structure has to be clean! There are a couple of options to get your concrete in good condition before you begin the restoration process 

One option is pressure washing. Deep cleaning by using a pressure washer can strip away years of accumulated dirt, grease, and mildew. However, you shouldn’t do this often, as it can hurt your structure. It is incredibly effective if employed in the right way and with the right frequency. 

The other option is a stain-removal treatment. Stubborn stains, like oil or rust, require specialized treatments. Using targeted concrete cleaners, these blemishes can be addressed and removed. 

 Mending Cracks

When you have had a structure for many years, certain types of cracks can be repaired if addressed correctly. For surfaces with extensive damage or for those looking for an entirely refreshed look, JKI offers a concrete resurfacing service, providing a smooth and consistent finish.


After revitalizing the concrete, the next step is protection. JKI emphasizes the use of high-quality sealers that shield the concrete from future stains, adverse weather, and the usual wear and tear. The type of sealer is often chosen based on the concrete’s intended use, ensuring longevity and reduced maintenance.


An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! Taking care to stay up-to-date on any maintenance can ensure that your parking garage or other structure is in good condition for many years. 

While concrete is a resilient material, it isn’t immune to the elements and the passing of time. However, with careful treatment and care, even the most dilapidated parking garages and structures can be improved.
