Concrete is a long-lasting product found in many places in and around your city. It’s most likely used to build the foundation of your warehouse, your parking lot, and even the streets you drive daily. Concrete Restoration has always been a tricky topic, mainly because there wasn’t anything on the market for commercial and industrial applications. Today, most concrete is torn out and replaced, substantially costing owners or agencies a lot of money and time. The cost of material, labor, and downtime needed to replace concrete tends to add up fairly quickly and until recently, Concrete Restoration was not a viable option.
Just like most things in life, concrete requires upkeep, and even then, it will begin to show signs of wear and tear. Concrete can break, detach, spall, and even sink over time. These problems not only lead to unsightly roads and pavements but can also create dangerous situations. When concrete develops cracks, water is allowed to enter and penetrate the base causing the soil to erode. The erosion creates pockets between the concrete slab and soil, leaving the concrete to sink into the base to fill the gap. Uneven concrete is a tripping hazard, wears down tires quicker, and rapidly decreases the quality creating more potential for accidents and injuries.
Reasons concrete goes bad
Concrete is probably one of the most durable products you can have indoors and out. But even with its durability, all concrete will eventually show wear. Concrete is porous and is susceptible to many things like moisture, temperature, de-icing salts, surface cracks, and exposed aggregates.
- Freeze/Thaw temperatures can cause cracks from the concrete, causing contracting and expansion.
- Surface cracks and chips leave the aggregate exposed, causing faster wear.
- Concrete slabs, including those in large warehouses and distribution centers, can become uneven, resulting in unlevel work surfaces.
- In colder environments, snow plows and street cleaners can catch and chip the surface and, in some cases, cause damage to the equipment.
Options to repair, restore, and protect damaged concrete.
Most companies and agencies’ first question is should I replace our paving, or can it be repaired and saved? Can old spalled, scaled, cracked, and pitted concrete be made to look new without digging it out and replacing the old paving?
