While concrete is a durable and long-lasting material that can withstand a great deal of wear and tear, it does get damaged over time. Let’s touch on when you need to repair or replace concrete and the different types of structures we commonly repair.
Reasons for Concrete Repair or Replacement
Some of the more common reasons for concrete repair include:
- Cracks and Damage: Over time, concrete can crack and become damaged due to exposure to the elements, heavy traffic, or even earthquakes. If left untreated, these cracks can lead to structural damage and compromise the integrity of the building.
- Uneven Surfaces: Uneven surfaces are a trip hazard and can damage equipment and vehicles. We can level out these surfaces and prevent accidents.
- Aging Structures: As concrete structures age, they may become weaker and less durable. A repair or replacement extends the life of these structures and improves their overall functionality.
- Water Damage: Over time, water often seeps into concrete structures causing damage. This is particularly common in areas with heavy rainfall or high levels of humidity.
Common Concrete Structures in Need of Repair or Replacement
We often repair or replacement a variety of structures, including:
- Parking Lots: Concrete parking lots become damaged over time from heavy vehicles and constant traffic. Repair and replacement extends the life of the parking lot and ensures its safety for your customers and employees.
- Sidewalks: Concrete sidewalks are an essential part of any commercial property. Unfortunately, they often become cracked and uneven over time. We can fix your sidewalks so they don’t pose any safety hazards.
- Foundations: The foundation of a building is crucial to its stability and safety. If it’s damaged, it can compromise the entire structure.
