[b][WARRIEWOOD, 12/3/2018][/b] - Most types of concrete encounter the same problem: cracks. The presence of cracks can lead to aesthetic and structural problems that vary in severity. After identifying and understanding the source of the crack, the next step is finding the most appropriate concrete repair product. Waterproofing Direct offers a range of concrete repair products sourced from trusted brands.
[b]Cracks on Concrete Structures[/b]
When steel bars inside concrete structures corrode, they generate iron oxides and hydroxides that cause expansive forces to accumulate in the concrete structure. This chemical reaction leads to cracking and spalling. Cracks provide an entryway for oxygen, chlorides and other corrosive agents to accelerate the corrosion process.
Cracks are classified according to thickness as fractures or fissures. These kinds of cracks can develop into serious issues that can negatively affect aesthetics and structural characteristics of a concrete structure. They can happen in any structure but are common in walls, pillars, slabs and beams.
Civil contractors and engineers highly recommend home and building owners to contact a concrete specialist to inspect their property for any flaw on their concrete walls or flooring. Sealing the smallest crack can prevent the development of more severe problems.
