Enhancing Safety and Durability: Garage Ramp Repair and Waterproofing in Scarborough

Maintaining the structural integrity and safety of residential buildings is of critical importance. One significant aspect of this maintenance is ensuring the stability and waterproofing of key elements, such as garage ramps. One such repair was conducted at a mid-rise residential building on Pharmacy Ave. in Scarborough, for which Tenera designed repair specifications and indicated the most efficient materials to use.

Repair Method

Our repair method prioritises durability and longevity. We provided the following specifications to the contractor.

First, all the existing cracks on the garage ramp had to be repaired before a waterproofing membrane could be installed. These cracks were to be carefully filled to prevent further deterioration and ensure a solid foundation for subsequent waterproofing layers.

Next, a thick layer of a polyurea-based waterproofing membrane was to be applied. This advanced membrane not only effectively seals the surface but also provides superior resistance against water ingress, preventing potential structural damage caused by moisture penetration.

To further enhance the durability and aesthetics of the repair, we indicated that a layer of polyaspartic coating was to be installed. This coating not only adds an additional barrier against moisture but also provides a sleek and attractive finish to the garage ramp. As a topcoat, black polyaspartic was to be utilised, broadcast with aluminum oxide aggregates for a safe non-slip finish. This combination not only enhances the visual appeal of the ramp but also improves traction, ensuring safe passage for vehicles and pedestrians alike.

Benefits of the Repair

The resulting repair offers numerous benefits to the residents and management of the residential building. Firstly, the enhanced waterproofing ensures protection against water damage, prolonging the lifespan of the garage ramp and underlying structures. Additionally, the durable nature of the repair minimises the need for frequent maintenance, reducing overall maintenance costs for the building.


Furthermore, the renewed appearance of the garage ramp contributes to the overall aesthetics of the residential property, creating a positive impression for residents and visitors alike. Moreover, the improved traction provided by the black polyaspartic coating with aluminum oxide aggregates enhances safety, particularly during inclement weather conditions.
