Troubleshooting Concrete Distress and Deterioration

Walk away with a better understanding of diagnosing the problem, types of damages, deterioration, and concrete repair techniques.

Endless cycles of short-term, costly repairs to deteriorating concrete are frustrating to everyone involved. To develop an appropriate repair or mitigation strategy to properly address these problems, the root cause of the problem must be identified, understood, and addressed. Identifying the root cause(s) of the distress is done through observation, testing, diagnosis, and analysis. Once this is accomplished, the extent and effect of the deterioration and damage can be analyzed, and appropriate repair techniques and preventative measures can be undertaken to provide a long-term solution, breaking the cycle of frequent repairs.
