Concrete Repair

Treat the signs of concrete spalling or cracking.

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.
