Concrete Replacement

Concrete may be strong, but it does go through wear and tear, inevitably requiring replacement. Concrete on your property might have deteriorated beyond the point where preventative maintenance may be performed, which is why the concrete will need to be removed and replaced as it ages.

Because it stops future deterioration and lowers potential liabilities, replacing damaged or degraded concrete is essential. 

Stakat is one of the best concrete replacement service providers you can find in the area. Call us today!

Conditions that may warrant concrete removal and replacement include:

  • Poor Design. A slab with locally weak parts due to poor design or building methods. Joint sealants that have not been properly maintained or installed.
  • Large or widespread cracks. Although the reasons for these issues vary, some potential culprits include unintentional weight on the slab, inadequate subbase preparation, surface water intrusion, and/or subpar materials or workmanship.
  • Settled Concrete. A concrete slab’s sub-foundation determines whether it is structurally sound. A concrete slab’s long-term performance depends heavily on the subbase material, preparation, water drainage, and compaction. Concrete surface failure can be caused by improper sub-foundation installation, weather factors like freeze-thaw cycles and water intrusion, as well as the expansive character of the local soils.

The Dry-Pack Method: 

On small holes in fresh concrete with a depth equal to or higher than the surface diameter, the dry-pack technique can be employed. A dry-pack mix is normally made by combining water and around one part Portland cement with two and a half parts sand. Next, add just enough water to make a mortar that will come together. When the mortar has attained the desired consistency, it is prepared to be packed into the hole in thin layers.

Concrete Replacement: 

It is necessary to replace damaged concrete when it is deeper than 6 inches or when regions of damage that are at least 1/2 to 1 square foot in size completely penetrate the concrete sections. In this situation, conventional concrete placing techniques ought to be applied. Connecting the repair to the existing reinforcing steel will increase its effectiveness (rebar). A qualified engineer with experience in a concrete building is required for this kind of repair.

Replacement of Unformed Concrete:

No specific techniques, aside from those employed in acceptable building practices for the placement of new slabs, are required for the replacement of damaged or deteriorated sections of horizontal slabs. A bond coat comprised of equal parts sand and cement can be used to adhere repair work to ancient concrete. It should be applied right before placing the concrete and have the consistency of whipped cream to prevent setting or drying. As bonding coatings, latex emulsions containing Portland cement and epoxy resins are also employed.

Preplaced Aggregate Concrete: 

Large-scale repairs have been made using this unique commercial technology, especially underwater repairs of piers and abutments. 

Synthetic Patches: 

The use of synthetic materials for bonding and patching is one of the most recent advancements in concrete repair. Epoxy-resin mixtures are widely employed due to their strong bonding capabilities. A bonding application of the epoxy resin is extensively brushed onto the base of the old concrete before adding epoxy-resin repairing. The surrounding material is then instantly raised by troweling mortar on top of it.
