But how important is concrete crack repair to keeping your company’s buildings and carparks intact? After all, isn’t concrete an incredibly durable material, built to stand the test of time no matter the threat?
The Strengths (and Weaknesses) of Concrete
Certainly, concrete is one of the core building materials of the modern world, and for a good reason. It is used in bridges, dams, tunnels, and tall buildings because it is incredibly robust and only gains strength over time. It can be melded into a limitless number of different shapes and sizes, making it remarkably versatile. It is also fire resistant, low maintenance, affordable, and sustainable in a way that many building materials are not.
Indeed, concrete has many desirable qualities. However, it’s important to remember that ‘invulnerability’ is not one of those qualities. While concrete is strong and low maintenance, it also fluctuates in size with changing temperatures and weather and can be highly susceptible to moisture and salt—among other threats. Finally, once a piece of concrete has been cracked—even slightly—it can no longer guarantee structural integrity or durability. Even hairline cracks in concrete can expose the reinforcing steel to the elements, leading to further damage.
