Concrete Repairs

We remove and repair defective concrete without compromising existing healthy concrete using Hydrodemolition.

Protect the integrity of your concrete structure by repairing concrete cancer or other cracks that have appeared in the concrete before the damage gets any worse.

We will prevent the spread of concrete deterioration by blasting away any damaged concrete with a technique known as hydrodemolition, this technique involves the use of a 2,800-bar pressurised water jet.

What is left is an area of sound concrete that makes an excellent bonding surface for new concrete application without damaging existing concrete or reinforcements.

No matter how difficult the location of the damaged concrete, we have the expertise and equipment to complete the work safely and efficiently. We will use either the traditional hand-lancing method or, in more hazardous locations, a fully-automated robotic process to remove deteriorated concrete.

Our concrete repair specialists will finish the repair by spraying replacement concrete known as guniting onto the area from which we removed the damaged concrete. We understand how concrete works, so we will put the measures in place to protect, strengthen and extend the lifespan of your concrete structure.

Our concrete repair process involves no harmful chemicals: just water.

This means far less dust is created, unlike traditional concrete removal techniques. We also use a Siltbuster HD pH adjustment system to treat the water after we repair the concrete to bring the pH levels back to 7 and avoid site contamination.

The result is a safe and environmentally-friendly concrete repair process.

Causes of Concrete Damage

Spalling

 Spalling also known as concrete cancer is the term used to describe cracked concrete, spalling can happen for a number of reasons from poor concrete installation, unforgiving weather conditions and from a build-up of moisture that causes the concrete to weaken over time and crack.

High temperatures

Concrete can be damaged when exposed to high temperatures, this happens when the temperature below the concrete surface begins to get too hot resulting in the concrete cracking, this typically occurs when the concrete is exposed to fire.

Corrosion of Reinforcements

Damaged concrete left untreated will result in the corrosion of embedded reinforcements leaving concrete structures extremely unstable. This typically occurs when cracks are left unchecked and are regularly exposed to rainwater or seawater.

Frequently Asked Questions

Got a question? We’re here to help

What is concrete cancer?

Concrete cancer also is known as spalling typically occurs when moisture seeps into the concrete causing it to expand which results in the concrete cracking.

What applications can we repair?

Typically we repair damaged concrete on bridges, marine structure and buildings. However, if our expertise aligns with your concrete problem we are more than willing to help. 

How do we repair concrete?

Typically we will remove any damaged concrete using a technique called hydrodemolition. We will then replace any damaged rebar and finish the repair by spraying replacement concrete known as guniting onto the area in which was damaged.
