Water is sneaky. It seeps into cracks and crevices in your building and can cause serious damage over time. As water travels through those cracks and crevices, it wears away more of the surface and allows even more water to infiltrate. Before you know it, you have some serious leaks that are causing damage.

Parking garages take a lot of wear and tear from vehicles, people, and the environment. Cars and trucks bring dirt, grease, and other grime into the garage where it begins to collect on the parking and walking surfaces.
