Concrete rehabilitation is generally broken into five basic types; joint/crack sealing, waterproofing, partial depth patching, full-depth patching, full sectional replacement.
Concrete is one of the most used materials around the world because it is durable, strong, and basic building material for the construction of foundational and/or structural support systems today. While incredibly strong on its own, it’s not invulnerable to damage or corrosion—and that’s when concrete repair services become necessary.
Unfortunately poor workmanship, construction procedures, and low quality materials can cause imperfections that later require repair. Long-term deterioration or damage due to man-made causes or natural forces of nature, including seismic events, must be corrected.
Neglecting to perform periodic maintenance and concrete foundation repairs to structures as they occur could result in failure of the structure from either a structural or hydraulic standpoint. This in turn may threaten the continued operation of the structure supported by concrete. Not only will it halt businesses, public utilities, and more from functioning, but it may also create health hazards to those around it.
Floor or wall movement, extensive cracking, improper alignments, settlement, joint displacement, and extensive undermining are signs of major structural problems requiring often requiring extensive repairs. In conditions where concrete replacement solutions are required to repair deteriorated concrete, Foundation Technology works with registered professional engineers to determine and design the best repair methodology. Our thorough inspection services are a valuable resource for providing needed assessments to engineers designing you next rehabilitation project.
