Unexpected concrete deterioration is spoiling most people’s idea that concrete lasts forever.
Concrete is perceived as a durable material for use in all environments. Which is why premature deterioration of concrete is unexpected, and unfortunately is usually widespread, and costly to repair. The correct diagnosis is imperative to repairing the damage properly. Diagnosing the problem is a process that starts with making the initial assessment using simple techniques to gain overall understanding. It is then followed with testing to gain the information needed to make the repair plan.
