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. Despite being a strong compression, it is relatively weak in tension.
However, the 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 to address visible damage signs but address the possible deterioration as well to extend the service life and sustainability of the structure.
