Concrete is surprisingly long lasting, however it likewise tends to crack, chip, and even move around if it wasn't mixed and poured properly. Even concrete that has been blended and poured properly can suffer damage with time. If your house has any kind of concrete damage, from minor damage to major damage, help is just a call away. Here at Fortic Concrete, we've been serving the local area for over 10 years. We've seen almost everything there is to see when it concerns concrete, so no matter how bad you think the damage is, we're sure that we can help you. There are other concrete contractors out there, but we're confident that as soon as you talk to us, you'll see that we are your best choice.
What type of damage do we see most often? Without a doubt, the most common type of concrete damage that we see are fractures. Cracks in concrete can be a result of improper mixing, or it can just be one of those things that happen. Possibly the ground shifted, or perhaps the concrete was harmed when something fell on it. If you have split concrete you can either watch it gradually get worse over time, or you can call us and let us fix it.
When we repair split concrete the first thing that we do is pressure clean it. We are very thorough due to the fact that any impurities left can affect the bonding of the patch and resurfacer that we use. Next, we'll use a patch to fill the fractures, then use a trowel to smooth the surface area. After that, we'll use a resurfacer to put a new finish on your concrete so that way once we're done it will look as good as the day it was first poured.
Another type of common concrete damage that we experience is spalling. What is spalling? It's little pits that establish on the surface of concrete. What causes it? Spalling is triggered when concrete isn't combined effectively. The good news is that most of the times, spalling won't have much of a result on the structural stability of the concrete. The problem is that it's an eyesore to look at.
Now for the bright side. We can repair spalling and make your concrete look as smooth as the day it was first poured. Initially, we'll use a pressure washer to eliminate any pollutants. Then, we'll apply a resurfacer to patch and fill any deep pits or fractures. After that has actually dried, we'll use a resurfacer to create a new surface area.
Lifting is a relatively common problem that we see. When wetness leaks into the ground and freezes, it expands. As it expands the soil can move around, which can trigger concrete to move, lift, and crack. Now for the bright side, we can fix it for you. Raised concrete it more than just an eyesore, it can break and it's also a danger that people can trip on. If your concrete is lifting, then call us today so we can evaluate the problem and fix it for you.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, concrete can likewise settle and sink with time. This is typically triggered by soil that was poorly compacted prior to the concrete was originally put. When concrete moves it fractures. So, anticipate to see cracks if your concrete is settling. More good news though, we can fix this for you too.
If you have damaged concrete inside of your home or outside of it, we're here to help you. Concrete typically gets more powerful gradually, however if there was an incorrect technique used when it was poured then it could compromise and suffer damage. It might have also suffered damage due to soil movement or from an effect of some kind. If this holds true for you, and you have damaged concrete, you can either throw down the gauntlet or let it get worse. If you are ready to do something about it, please call us at Fortic Concrete.
