Project Insights : Concrete Repairs
Recently, BellMont was employed to undertake an inspection of this property by the strata committee in charge of it. During our diagnostic investigations, we discovered that there was a large amount of concrete in the structure that was unsuitable and in need of remediation.
As you can see below, the defects were quite extensive and required some consideration on how to best approach the task at hand. It was decided that the most effective method to repair the damage before it worsened and caused any catastrophic failures, was to use hand applied repair methods.
This approach involves:
Below are some pictures of this process.
Often these defects are a safety concern and will only worsen over time. So if you're concerned about your concrete, don't hesitate to contact us and start the process now.
There are a great number of defects that can occur throughout the lifetime of a building. To deal with them effectively it takes knowledge and experience. Our engineers come across building defects daily and have gained all the skills to deal with them.
One such defect that we have expertly serviced an innumerable amount of times is concrete cancer. If left untreated, the effects it has on a structure can be devastating but with the right approach and some time it can be fixed.
The cause leading to the cancer almost always has water involved. It usually progresses in the following way:
Depending on how and where the cancer affects the slab determines the kind of interventions that are used to facilitate an effective remediation. There are three main ways to treat concrete cancer and they are as follows:
All of our engineers are familiar with each treatment and can readily identify which method is the best approach in any case that presents itself.
