Gas Station

PROJECT:  Parking Lot

SIZE: 20,000 sq.ft.

STAKEHOLDER REALTY:

Tremendous spalling had taken place in a small gas station parking area and needed repair without disruption to service.

  • A complete tear out of the concrete and replacement was needed to restore the parking area.
  • This repair would have caused the store to be closed for at least 2-3 weeks with lost revenue.

THE SOLUTION:

  • Polymer concrete overlay was chosen to fill all of the low spots and bring the surface to a brand new look.
  • The store never had to close during the restoration.
  • Colder temperatures can slow down strength gain of cement, but this product was modified for a faster set and strength gain from addition of accelerators to the mix. This enabled work to progress throughout the day and completion was on time.
  • Penetrating sealer was used to further enhance the protective layers, insuring that the water and salts used would not penetrate the new cover.

THE RESULTS:

Gallup, New Mexico has an average of 200 freeze/thaw cycles per winter.  This project of 20,000 sq.ft. was installed in 2012.
