Concrete cancer is often mistaken as general weathering however there is a much larger issue which lies inside the concrete structure. Concrete cancer occurs when the inner reinforcing steel begins to rust and corrode. This rusting steel expands, forcing the surrounding concrete to be displaced and weaken. As the steel pushes away from the concrete, the exposure to water and environmental elements is increased and this significantly speeds up the rate of deterioration.
