Concrete restoration may be required as part of your building's overall recertification or milestone inspection process or alternatively, it may be a standalone issue that needs to be addressed. Restoration becomes necessary when concrete structures show signs of deterioration, compromised structural integrity, safety hazards, aesthetic issues, water intrusion, or non-compliance with building codes.
Common areas prone to structural damage include elevated slabs, catwalks, decks, and parking areas. In Florida, moisture intrusion is a primary cause of structural concrete damage, leading to rebar rusting. Superficial issues on the building's surface may indicate more severe underlying problems that can only be accurately assessed by a qualified and experienced structural engineer.
