Concrete Repair

What is concrete repair?

Concrete repair is the process of fixing a hardened concrete surface that over time has lost the ability to hold the binding concrete materials together due to damage or environmental exposure. 

It is important to regularly keep in check the quality and state of concrete to ensure that there is no wear and tear, and if there is, that it is tended to immediately, as “if left unchecked or unrepaired, it can further disintegrate the concrete structure. However, fixing damaged concrete is not necessarily an easy job to do, and often, hiring professionals may be the best option. 

Concrete in its simplest form, as explained by Portland Cement Association is “a mixture of paste and aggregates, or rocks” that through a chemical reaction called hydration, hardens and gains strength to form the rock-like mass known as concrete. Concrete is one of the most used and durable man-made materials in the world. It is an important construction material used extensively in buildings, bridges, roads and dams, where its uses have an almost limitless range on structural applications. Pro Crew Schedule states that “Concrete, in present-day infrastructure has been deteriorating at a fast pace due to the corrosion of reinforcing steel, affected from chloride and other ions from road salts, marine areas and ground soils, making concrete a ‘complex composite’, which needs improvement, monitoring, and control.” Why does concrete defect:
  • Alkali Aggregate reaction in concrete;
  • Corrosion of embedded steel;
  • Fire or Heat;
  • Abrasion/Erosion;
  • Chemical Attack;
  • Overload and Impact on concrete; and
  • Surface defects.
What these defects may result in:
  • Cracks;
  • Spalling;
  • Settlement; and
  • Lifting.
