RELIABLE CONCRETE CANCER REPAIRS PERTH

When it comes to serious structural problems, Brick and Mortar Restoration are the professionals you can rely on. Concrete cancer (also known as concrete degradation) is a serious problem and is essentially caused by water penetration which causes steel reinforcements to rust inside the concrete. Brick and Mortar Restoration in Perth are able to inspect buildings for the signs of cancer and where possible, treat the reinforcements and repair the original structure.

TELLTALE SIGNS OF DEGRADATION

Concrete degradation is a serious problem and can become a safety hazard if left untreated. Here are a few of the signs to look for which may indicate the presence of cancer. If you spot these, it’s important to get a professional to inspect and treat the concrete as soon as possible both to ensure your safety and maintain the structural integrity of your building.

RUST STAINS

Rust stains either running down the side of a building or appearing near a cracked area of concrete can be indicative of concrete degradation.

LIFTING

When the steel reinforcements rust they become warped and can lift the surrounding concrete. If concrete is lifting for no apparent reason, it could be a sign of displacement and degradation.

SIGNS OF MOISTURE

Any cracks with moisture or signs of moisture are indicative of water entering the structure. Once this occurs, it’s only a matter of time before rusting begins.

REPAIR AND TREATMENT

Firstly we would attend your Perth property and carry out a full site inspection to determine the cause of concrete cancer. Once we have determined the cause we would then provide a written quote detailing out the restoration process required to rectify your damaged concrete. Treatment usually involves chiselling away the spalling and then applying a rust inhibitor to the steel. After this, the area is patched and any cracks are repaired to ensure the area remains waterproof.
