Concrete repair replaces defective, damaged, or deteriorated concrete; restores structural function; protects the surface or underlying concrete from aggressive environments; and restores any lost performance requirements.
Concrete repair problems are diverse in nature. Each condition requires a clear understanding of what is expected of the repair including appearance, protection needs, and load carrying requirements.
Critical to successful concrete repair is proper surface preparation of the area being repaired. This includes complete removal of concrete around and below the reinforcing steel and preparation of the substrate. Combined, these techniques ensure maximum bond between the new repair material and the existing substrate, resulting in effective, long-lasting repairs.
An effective repair strategy must draw from a variety of repair materials, each having an installation technique that best suits both the material and the strategy.
