Concrete Cancer Repairs.
We treat and repair damaged concrete, this type of damage is commonly known as Concrete Cancer or Concrete Spalling.
WHAT IS CONCRETE CANCER?
This damage occurs when the surface of the concrete is poorly finished and water is allowed to enter and seep through to the steel inside. The salt in the water then causes the steel to rust, the steel then expands and eventually causes the concrete to pop or flake off, thus the reason for the name Concrete Cancer.
This is a worldwide problem causing billions of dollars in losses to bridges and buildings every year. The term “Spall” literally means, flakes or fragments are ejected due to stress or impact. So as you can see, the detection, diagnosis and treatment of this problem requires a special expertise and immediate action to save the integrity of the structure.
If you live near the ocean your building is under constant attack by theses forces of nature.
