The use of reinforced concrete elements within a structure continues to be one of the most common and economically viable methods of construction within Sydney’s diverse built environment.
However, like you would service your car, concrete too, requires maintenance to prolong its working life. Increasing levels of pollution and Sydney’s salt and moisture rich coastal environment pose serious structural and safety issues for buildings due to the corrosive effects of such elements. When the steel reinforcement of a concrete structure comes into contact with moisture over an extended period of time it corrodes and expands. This can lead to concrete cracks and corrosion induced spalling, issues that may significantly compromise the strength of the overall structure.
Cracks and spalling within concrete needs to be repaired by experienced remedial tradespeople in order to guarantee the performance and value of an asset.
