Concrete Repair Vacouver, BC
Concrete cracking and deterioration are most often the result of poor preparation, improper mixing, and failed application process. Even though concrete itself is a strong material, incorrect processing of it can lead to premature cracking, crumbing, and in the end deterioration. Concrete is often able to last up to 20 years without problem but cracking and damage will significantly reduce this number and can cause harm to vehicles or sometimes foot traffic that may pass it. We repair concrete quickly, efficiently, and with the top-notch methods to make sure you’re getting the most out of your concrete surfaces. Concrete repairs are intended to be the money saving alternative to new concrete installations, so we design our repair services to be just as strong as the initial concrete itself.
Filing is the process of leveling out your cracked concrete to better fill it with a suitable filling agent to seal it up completely. Filing is completed using our industrial concrete filing equipment and with the expertise of each of our professional concrete contractors.
Concrete filing can be done in a day and we fill the cracks or holes appropriately with a sturdy sealing agent that is strong, waterproof, and equally as durable as concrete itself. Concrete filings are not visible to the naked eye once completed and aren’t intended to add a negative appearance to your concrete’s surface or functionality.
Regular cleanings and general maintenance are often encouraged for people with concrete surfaces that want to reduce damages. While we’re able to assist with general maintenance such as annual checks, cleanings, and filing or repairs, we urge our clients to consistently participate in the upkeep of their concrete. Strategies for general upkeep are usually minor and require very little effort but can go a long way and stop your concrete from possible damage or in need of repairs. Such steps like occasionally watering it down in-order-to remove debris buildup, as well as cleaning gas and oil droppings to prevent stains, will help to ensure that your concrete stays in its best form at any age.
