Structural Concrete Restorations

Damaged Buildings Can Be Safety Hazards

Structural damage can occur to any internal or external, load-bearing concrete component of a building that is essential to its stability, such as its foundations, floors, walls, roofs, columns, joists or beams. For safety reasons and potential liability, structural issues should never be ignored.

Has the construction integrity of your building been compromised? Look for any of these signs:

  • Cracks in the foundation or crumbling cement
  • Cracks in the pool deck or plaza deck
  • Leaks in the roof
  • Basement flooding
  • Spalling concrete
  • Rusted rebar
  • Mildew, fungus or mold development
  • Unstable or cracked walls
  • Warped doors
  • Rotted lintels or window casings
  • Construction defects
  • Violations of current safety standards

Types of Damage

Buildings can deteriorate over time and sustain structural damage. Rusted rebar that’s embedded in concrete can expand up to 7 times its size, creating large cracks and structural instability. If you see evidence of any damage, you need a professional inspection to check for issues such as:

  • Water intrusion
  • Insect or termite infestation
  • Poor quality construction materials
  • Failed repairs
  • Weather extremes
  • Rust to all I-beams and rebar
  • Wear-and-tear over time
  • Old age
  • Ground settling
  • Uncontrolled corrosion

While any of these problems should be cause for concern, they can be resolved, and ignoring them will only make the problem worse. An experienced construction contractor can determine the cause and provide recommendations to bring the building back into safe, operational condition.
