Concrete Repair

BRS have many years experience in structural and cosmetic concrete repair giving them the ability to refine the best suitable concrete refurbishment method for each individual project.

Spalling concrete or concrete cancer as it’s sometimes referred to, is caused by the corrosion of steel in concrete. The repair of spalling concrete is quite technical and it’s not simply a matter of covering the exposed reinforcement. Poorly repaired areas only mask the underlying issues and over time problems will re-occur, but at a more advanced level. With BRS Concrete repair services we will restore your concrete spalling and cracking issues before they get any worse causing potential safety hazards.

Underlying problems in a concrete structure are not always obvious, however; cracking, honeycombing and spalling, are relatively easy to spot.

The real concern is the underlying cause of the problem, these issues can include:

  • Inadequate waterproofing and protection of the concrete surfaces.
  • Incorrect concrete design.
  • Poor or inadequate steel design.
  • Incorrect concrete curing.
  • Cracking and deflection of the concrete structure.
