Concrete, though tough, may crack and crumble as a result of some environmental factors. Temperature and moisture sometimes reach such an extreme level that their presence can be felt even through the damage to concrete structures such as walkways and floors. In spite of being a strong compression, it is relatively weak in tension. However, inclusion of steel reinforcement improves the tensile strength of the element, as a result of which its stress resistance increases significantly. In presence of water and oxygen, steel or any other metal element tends to corrode, and therefore, in almost all likely exposure conditions for steel-reinforced concrete, corrosion of steel and damage to the concrete structure is a potential hazard.
Trust Pro Contracting offers a wide range of high performance concrete repair products and services for structural, protective and cosmetic repair applications. The intention is not only address visible damage signs but address the possible deterioration as well so as to extend the service life and sustainability of the structure.
Surface Repair Method
Surface failures are the most common concrete damages. Whether due to the freeze-thaw action, aggregate pop-outs, or corroded reinforcing steel; surface repair method is the perfect solution to such damages. The concrete surface restoration has to be carried out, when reinforcing steel is not encountered.
- Patching method
This method makes use of mortar with the consistency capable of being formed in to a ball without sagging.
- Grouting method
Castable concrete is used in grouting method for concrete repair. This Castable concrete is a highly flowable mixture with proper bond properties and low shrinkage.
- Shotcrete spray method
For huge concrete repair applications such as bridge or infrastructure repair, shotcrete spray method is the best solution. Moreover, it can also be used for retaining walls, artificial rocks, rockscapes, slope stabilization, concrete domes, and swimming pools. While, cutting out the damaged concrete, replacing reinforcing steel, and replacing the concrete, this method is used.
Trust pro is one of the recognized leaders in concrete injection technology. We have perfected the delivery of these systems over hundreds of projects. Some of the main grouting and injection solutions that we are involved with are cementitious grouting, epoxy injection, chemical grouting, and slab jacking.
With high quality surface preparations, overlays can be used for concrete surface repair. It is an effective method to cover up surface problems.
At Trust Pro Contracting, we provide appropriate systems in order to protect a wide range of metallic structures in various environments by using Cathodic protection. It is a technique used to control the corrosion of a metal surface by making it the cathode of an electrochemical cell.
Partial Depth Repair
Partial depth repair involves cutting around the edges of the damaged area without addressing the reinforcing steel, removing the damaged concrete portion and cleaning or replacing the reinforcing steel. Eventually, a repair mortar is placed.
From new build defects and age related deterioration to everything in between, Trust Pro Contracting is your right partner for concrete repair solution!
