Concrete is a very durable building material, but still wear and weathering can cause concrete to break. When concrete breaks away from the main slab it is called “spalling”. In most cases this is caused by either moisture penetration, corrosion or delaminating of the concrete.
Concrete Repair versus Replacement
Patching concrete can be more cost effective than a full replacement. It also takes less time and if done right the repair work will be unnoticeable. From our experience, a proper repair job can be as good and last as long as the original concrete built.
Depending on the extent of the spalling a total replacement may be necessary. Call (713) 988-6506 or contact us online for a free consultation on your project.
Concrete Surface Repair
Surface failures are one of the most common issues with concrete. A lot of times concrete surface failures are only cosmetic. The concrete still is functional but looks bad or has a chalky surface. Finding out how severe the surface failure is, will lead to one of the following repair options:
- Overlay Only: New overlay gets placed to cover up minor surface problems
- Partial Depths Repair : Leaving the reinforced steel untouched, the damaged area gets cut out (around the edges) , removed and replaced
- Full Depths Repair: Total replacement – the damaged concrete gets removed, reinforced steel as well as the concrete get replaced
