Causes of Concrete Damage
Many elements can cause damage to concrete, and New Era Concrete is familiar with the effect these elements have and how to repair them. Cracks are virtually inevitable over time, but with the right materials and techniques, we’ll help your concrete stay in top condition for decades. Some of the most common causes of concrete damage include the following:
Utah winters can be very cold and filled with snow, ice, and other moisture. When water seeps into your concrete and then freezes, which results in concrete flaking off. This process is known as scaling. Since the cement is a porous material, water can easily penetrate it and cause issues like scaling and even cracks when the cement freezes.
There is plenty of moisture in concrete when we pour it to install all sorts of property features, such as walkways, driveways, patios, and stairs. As the concrete dries over time, the moisture leaves the mixture, causing it to shrink and crack. When we install concrete features, we help to control the effects of shrinking and cracking with predetermined joints. However, unplanned cracking can still occur and require professional repairs.
The concrete in professional structures has steel rebar placed within it. The use of steel helps to prevent rusting, but if chloride ions are present in the environment, rust can still occur. The rusting causes expansion within the concrete, which puts tension on it and results in cracks.
