Concrete spalling or concrete cracking – especially on the outside of a building – not only looks bad, but it is potentially dangerous. Over time, and with increased exposure to the elements, untreated pieces of concrete may fall from your structure, damaging property, or even worse, hitting a person walking below.
Concrete spalling may also be referred to as concrete cancer. The signs of spalling include:
- Crazing and cracking concrete
- Rust stains which seem to leak out from within the concrete
- Bubbling (also called Plating) of concrete render
- Drummy concrete. Concrete which appears solid, but when tapped shows evidence of air trapped behind it meaning it has started to delaminate (split into layers)
- Leaks which appear in overhead concrete surfaces
Concrete spalling is most often caused by structural factors such as building movement or rust within the structural reinforcing. That’s why, if you see sign of concrete spalling or concrete cracking it’s important to take action early.

WHAT YOU SAID
Overall, the quality of the work, the attention to detail and the respect to residents by the entire team from Remedial was outstanding. The Residents, Shareholders and Board members of Lancaster Gate Pty Ltd were very happy with the outcome,
The detail, the recommendations, etc are perfect and I would like to say you have set the benchmark gold standard for me. I deeply appreciate your expertise, professionalism and commitment to doing the best job possible.
With the works recently being completed to my unit I would like to express my satisfaction with not only the quality of the work but also with the courtesy, professionalism and responsiveness of all the workers with whom I dealt.
The Owners Corporation thanks Remedial for the delivery of the refurbishment project at Beauville. The quality of the workmanship, skill and care shown to our client is much appreciated given the difficulty in working in a fully occupied property whilst attending to such a substantive scope of works in the transformation, both inside and out, of a 50 year old high rise in an exposed position.
We have always received high quality work and very good project management. Advice given has been accurate, timely and cost effective. Very happy with the service.
You have every reason to be proud of your team, and as our list of known remediations resulting from our water ingress problems gets towards its end, I just want to acknowledge your leadership and management of all the projects you have seen us through. We would have no hesitation in recommending RBS to other Stratas!

A study released in 2020 found that over a 22 year period (1998-2019) there were 381 falls from balconies and windows. Often these were due to non-compliant balconies. In this blog we discuss what you need to know about balcony safety and upgrades

Australian work culture has for too long propagated a “Don’t be a wimp” attitude, which has seen employees chided for taking risk precautions. We do not subscribe to this in any shape or form and believe creating a safe work environment should be the top priority for any employer or contractor; especially true when working at heights.
