CWC has gained a reputation for intelligently waterproofing and sequencing repairs so as to eliminate drastic, or unnecessary, costs over the lifetime of a structure. CWC maintains total control of the quality and scheduling throughout restoration, easily handling large, self-performed demolition projects and all of the large-scale aspects associated with it. Parking garages have imminent needs over the course of time due to the exposure to weather, the stress on the structure from heavy use, and the expected wear from traffic which places a constant stress on the decks.
Our restoration and preservation team applies years of experience to help owners remain proactive against water and chemical damage over the lifetime of their garage facility. Such structures are routinely exposed to damaging weather and chemicals, such as petroleum derivatives, water, road salt, and acid rain. New, existing, and repaired structures require protection from these elements infiltrating the decks, which advance corrosion, cracks, and the possible presence and expansion of ice within the concrete bonds. Waterproofing is vital during any structural repair, as it successfully eliminates the need to repeat the same repair again, and prevents related future costs for the owner.
Over 20 years of assessing outdated or flawed industry practices during our restoration of older garages, CWC has gained significant insight. All of which is integrated throughout our management and workforce to improve each new design/build and specialty project. Our restoration philosophy is built upon being proactive, not reactive, so that we can stay ahead of maintenance and prevent costly repairs for the owner.
All restoration planning is personalized and comprehensive based on the structure’s needs and potential, allowing CWC to tackle any project-related challenge with cost effectiveness and industry best practices. At CWC, WE SOLVE PARKING™

On an annual basis, we have Carl Walker Construction, Inc. review our structure to make certain the surface membrane is still intact. We also rely on them for sidewalk and paver repairs. In 2005, a broken City of Pittsburgh water main flooded another one of our parking facilities. Carl Walker Construction, Inc. inspected the deck and resurfaced the damaged sections …another job well done.
Their field management is excellent, and the work they have done for us has extended the useful life of our parking facilities.

I’m very impressed with the Carl Walker Construction, Inc. organization. Their leadership team will work with you closely to help you achieve your goals. They’re really committed to getting you the package that meets your needs. We recently worked with Dave Monroe on a potential project, and were extremely impressed. I would absolutely rely on them for technical assistance with a parking structure, and would recommend them to anyone considering construction of a parking garage. Their reputation is excellent.
