Concrete Parking Garage Ceiling Repair

I am working at a hotel that is practically across the street from the ocean and the concrete ceiling of the parking garage under the hotel is starting to fall in small chunks. I need to patch these areas so that i can repaint the building which includes the ceiling of the parking garage. What is the best way and/or product to get this job done?

Welcome to the forums.

This isn't my department but I'm just making an observation.

Is this something you are trying to do by hand ?
You have a big parking garage with small chunks falling down.
Is it a wide-spread problem ?
It almost sounds like you're going to be fighting a losing battle. You patch what is crumbling now and more crumbles in the future.

Not my area but my first reaction would be to back off and tell the company to get a concrete repair company to inspect and repair the ceiling before you paint. The problem may or may not be indicative of a more serious problem. Do you really want that liability?

I'm with Ray - in this day and age, you don't want to assume any unnecessary liability.

While a painter might be expected to repair minor defects as part of the paint prep, any large scale repairs need to be done by someone experienced in that field prior to any painting being done.
