Despite being perceived as strong and durable, concrete is actually very susceptible to outside influences. Other than physical strains such as subsidence, root damages or impact damage, the main problem in keeping concrete structures in good health is water.
Why concrete repair?
Concrete repair is often the quickest and cheapest option for many businesses who want to retain the life on any sort of structure.
Your concrete structures can become dangerous due to the following causes.
Main causes of concrete degradation
- Carbonation - The process of chemical reactions taking place where areas are exposed to the elements.
- Chloride - Usually from sea water causing an autocatalytic process to take place, not on the concrete but on the reinforcing steel that is being used.
- Distilled water - commonly as steam can wash out calcium content in concrete, leaving it in a brittle condition
Without adequate water proofing and regular concrete repair, concrete buildings can degrade far quicker than their brick or composite structures.

Recent Project, Concrete Repair:
Waste Recycling Group - Eastcroft Incinerator, Nottingham
We have recently carried out essential concrete repair and maintenance to the reinforced concrete chimney at Eastcroft Incinerator Nottingham on behalf of Waste Recycling Group.
The planned shut down works involved removal of the existing smoke band concrete repair and the application of new anti-carbonation coatings to the chimney.
The chimney required remedial concrete repair and stabilisation through drilling and pinning of the external concrete flutes.
The works were completed to the satisfaction of the client on time and within budget.
Concrete Repair Solution:
Erect full scaffold around the smoke band to contain all materials from the smoke band removal.
Concrete repair and application of anti-carbonation coatings to extend the life of the structure to 10 years to next maintenance.
We have worked with various steeplejack companies in the past and our expertise in the field of concrete repair and specialist coating systems proved invaluable on this project..Malcolm Speeden
