Concrete Cancer can slowly kill a building if not stopped.
If left untreated, it is not only unsightly, but pieces of concrete may come lose and fall off the building posing a risk of injury to people walking by and damage to other property.
Concrete cancer is rust originating deep within the concrete- specifically within reinforcing steel. As steel rusts, it can expand up to 7 times its original size causing the surrounding concrete to be displaced.
The problem is very likely to be much more extensive than what is apparent on the concrete surface. The cancer will have spread along the reinforcing in each direction. It is impossible to know the extent until the concrete is chiselled away.
The typical method of concrete cancer repair follows a process of:
The membrane system is detailed to all penetrations and junctions. The system will be supported by manufacturer warranty for 10 years and extendable for a further 10 years with a maintenance application.
Cracks can also be repaired using a technique called crack injection where suitable epoxy or polyurethane resins are injected.
