Concrete Repair & Protection
Concrete repair is the process of fixing a hardened concrete surface that over time has lost the ability to hold the binding concrete materials together due to damage or environmental exposure. Concrete repair is appropriate for cracks, physical impacts, chipped out surfaces or surface scaling.
We offer customized solutions for your structure. We do not, however, only look at the visible damage, but also provide support for the evaluation of the causes of your structural damage. As a result, we are able to offer you an integrated solution, providing a specifically designed product combination based on the needs of your individual structure.
Choosing the most suitable solution for refurbishment can have a big impact on the life cycle of a concrete structure. While many owners decide to use high quality concrete repair materials, they do not consider that there is more to do after the concrete repair is finished. Despite repairing a concrete structure with concrete repair mortars, further damages may occur some years later, because only the damaged concrete has been replaced – but insufficient concrete cover still remains. By using concrete protection after the concrete repair has been completed, the entire structure can be protected for longer and repair cycles can be prolonged significantly.
