CONCRETE REPAIR & RESTORATION

PROCEDURES

In our evaluation, we look for scaling, deep spalling, sinking and ponding, sloping, crazing, and cracking. We will determine the depth of failure using a Schmidt hammer or a sounding hammer and chain. Depending upon the severity of the damage and results from our evaluation, we will determine the best and most cost-effective approach. This is our area of expertise!

We start with the removal of any loose and deteriorated areas. This is accomplished by using a combination of needle/chisel scaling, and a walk behind carbine cutter scarifier, and a 6,000-10,000psi water blaster.

 

Cracks are routed and diamond grinded out to prepare the area for epoxy resin and ensure a clean bonding surface.

 

The surface is diamond grinded with our dustless system to remove imperfections in the concrete, and remove surface irregularities. For larger surface areas, we will use a walk behind 450GP concrete grinder.

Lastly, the entire area is water blasted at 6,000 psi to open the pores and ensure the

surface is free and clean from all dust, loose material and contamination.

Once the concrete passes our final cleaning inspection, deep spalled areas are filled with a state approved  structural repair mortar.

Any cracks are grouted.

Once cleaning, waterproofing, patching and crack repair is complete, the entire area is coated with our custom blended polymer modified grout (PMG). Our PMG has extraordinary adhesion, exceptional strength, is able withstand heavy vehicular traffic, and restores and protects the concrete surface. The PMG is applied using a textured concrete spray gun to ensure the surface meets state requirements for slip resistance.

All expansion joints are recut to prevent future cracking. Typically, this is done where previous cracks were located. This will help the concrete expand and contract at an expansion joint rather than form a new crack.

 

The final step involves the applying one coat of a state approved colored siliconized acrylic urethane stain/sealant. The sealer improves the appearance, while providing protection from further damage from acid rain, salts, traffic, spills, etc.

 

We will perform an accelerated weathering using a fluted silicon carbide stone. This will remove any areas vulnerable to potential damage by natural elements and heavy vehicular traffic to include protecting against snow plows.

A final protective seal coat will be applied on top of the entire surface area.

 

There is an option to fill all expansion joints with a polyurethane colored sealant to safeguard against future contamination.
