Concrete Repair Richmond BC
Residential Concrete Repairs
With our years of experience in concrete repair, we are versed in repairing all types of concrete. Whether you need repair done on a concrete driveway, patio, stairs, walkway, or even your counter top, our team of expert contractors will make sure that it looks as close to its original condition as they can. Not only will our team be able to repair any concrete issues you may have, we will be able to diagnose the root cause of the damage to ensure this doesn't happen again. Sometimes the cause of the concrete damage is due to the ground shifting below the surface which is not easily diagnosed just by taking a look at the concrete.
Commercial Concrete Repairs
When it comes to commercial concrete repairs, we understand that getting the repair done as effectively and as fast as possible is of utmost importance. Having cracked concrete in your business could potentially be dollars lost for you if it is not repaired. We ensure that our commercial jobs are done as fast as possible while ensuring the utmost standard of procedures. For those not in the industry, it can be a bit hard to appreciate the difficulty involved in even installing concrete slabs, let alone repairing them. While at times it may just look like a simple crack from the surface, we need to ensure that once the concrete is fixed, it must meet the stringent requirements and standards involved in commercial concrete. This concrete needs to be able to withstand everyday use of pallet jacks and forklifts that can weigh over 10,000 lbs. With our experience in commercial repairs, we'll make sure to keep your business's downtime in the repair area to a minimum and ensure your concrete meets commercial standards.
Concrete Crack Repair
Seeing a concrete crack can be disheartening for anyone as it can be difficult to determine if it is something that needs to fixed up right away or if its a repair that could be done at a future date. Our concrete repair team will be able to diagnose how bad a crack is and if it requires immediate attention. If we are dealing with a crack that is considered structural, an epoxy injection is the most common way to repair it. Epoxy injections are an excellent solution for structural cracks as once it cures, the bond it creates is extremely strong and it will return the integrity of your concrete. Epoxy is great for above grade (above ground level) repairs as it does not work well where there is any moisture present. Below grade (below ground level) is typically where you will see moisture gather and may require another solution (we cover that in the next section). Our concrete repair contractors will know the best solution for any cracks that may come up in your home.
Concrete Leak Repair
No matter what the issue or source is, leaking water is a headache for anyone that has to go through with that. Regardless of how strong concrete is, cracks in your concrete can lead to leaks as moisture is squeezed through the cracks. For cracks that are non-structural, a polyurethane injection is the common method of repair. The great thing about polyurethane is that you are able to use it even when moisture is present, which can be the case for a lot of below grade (below ground level) cracks. Water can accelerate the curing process of polyurethane so even if there is an active leak, we will be able to get the crack patched up. This method of working from the inside is much more preferred than excavating and installing a waterproof membrane due to the costs and time involved.
