Concrete Repairing Mildura
Concrete by its very basic nature is strong in compression and weak in tension. So cracks perpendicular to the direction of the tension will appear. Concrete damage might occur due to corrosion of reinforcing steel rebars. These steel rebars are protected inside concrete since the concrete is alkaline and prevents rust but if chloride ions are present perhaps from seepage in cracks it might cause corrosion. Blisters caused by bubbled concrete surfaces by prematurely finishing and sealing in air and bleeding water. Alkali aggregate reaction might cause concrete damage. Plastic shrinkage cracks or drying shrinkage cracks and cracks from structural loads can indicate a structural problems and should be addressed quickly. The other forms of concrete damage can be caused by thermal cracks, physical damage due to heavy traffic conditions or dumping of high load material, chemical damage or erosion by fast flowing water.
