Commercial Concrete Ceiling Repair of Stains and Deterioration
Concrete ceilings are a great building choice for many commercial buildings, since they help reinforce the structure and its load bearing properties. While they take longer and require more expertise to install, a concrete ceiling is often low maintenance and durable. A concrete ceiling also provides extra insulation and can provide the bonus of improved sound proofing. Yet, like other construction materials, concrete ceilings are fallible.
So if you notice stains or deterioration in the concrete ceiling in your commercial building, there often is a larger underlying problem that needs to be fixed, such as movement in your structure, or moisture leaks.

Whether you have a stain on your concrete ceiling or noticeable deterioration, the professional contractors at CertaPro Painters® can repair the problem to restore your commercial ceiling to its previous condition.

While both of these short-term solutions may work for a time, they won’t last and can potentially cause more harm than good.

When fixing the concrete the correct materials are necessary to ensure the fix holds. Experience has shown that an application of additional cement will not fix the problem because cement shrinks when it dries. Simply painting over stained concrete doesn’t fix the underlying issue either and will likely just bleed through again. Shortcuts taken in the repair process of the are likely to cause continuing problems and additional costs.

CertaPro Painters® can identify the cause of the problem and make sure it is fixed with the correct products according to manufacturer’s specifications. It’s always best to have a professional examine your concrete ceiling to ensure that the correct products are selected and properly applied for your commercial property.
