Professional Concrete Repair Contractors in Perth
Concrete structures degrade over time through weathering processes, structural loads, aggressive environmental conditions, damage, pollution and poor workmanship. The result of this degrading can present as “concrete cancer” or cracking. The negative outcome of “concrete cancer” and concrete cracking can be dramatic including failure of the asset as it becomes structurally unstable. The first signs of “concrete cancer” include rust staining from corroding steel in the concrete and spalling. Spalling is caused by reinforcement rusting and expanding as a result of contact with water, which can be a result of poor waterproofing. Rusting steel expands significantly and “pushes” the concrete off the steel at this location. This exposed steel is then allowed more atmospheric exposure which corrodes further and the cyclical damage process continues. If left untreated this will allow the “cancer” to spread, which may lead to costly, lengthy and intrusive repairs in addition to the risk that concrete may fall off the structure and have the potential to cause serious injury to persons and/or property.
