Concrete Repair and Concrete Restoration

Broward, Dade, and Palm Beach Counties in South Florida

 

Concrete repair is a fact of life for an old building.    This is especially true for buildings in South Florida.  The "salt air" is the main reason for this concrete failure.   To put it another way, the chlorides in the air make their way into the concrete.  Consequently, the rebar inside the concrete rusts and expands.  As a result, the concrete cracks and ruptures.  This breach is called a "spall".  Read our blog that provides more detailed information on what a "Spall" is.  These spalls are considered a failure and can lead to a collapse.  For this reason, Cities and Counties in South Florida take these matters very seriously.

There are other serious issues that can affect an old building.  This includes waterproofing, roofing, and electrical items.  In order to maintain our buildings safe, Cities have required that buildings undergo a 40 Year inspection.   Nevertheless, the most costly repairs are typically those related to the concrete restoration.  Thus, hiring the right person to help you is critical if you want to do things right the first time.
