Concrete restoration & crack repairs

 

Procedure

We open up the crack with an angle grinder and fill the crack repair epoxy. Or do a stitch repair, cutting channels at right angles to the crack and epoxying in steel dowels. Once set the repaired crack is ground flat with the concrete surface. The repaired crack is often stronger than the surrounding concrete.

Chips and crumbling concrete, especially on the sides of joins are repaired in a similar manner.

The repairs are done in the same way for industrial or domestic applications, but domestic repairs need to have either a tinted sealer over the entire area or and overlay system otherwise the repaired cracks will be visible.

We remove algae and dirt from concrete whether it be exposed aggregate, stamped or plain concrete and apply a clear or tinted resin based sealer, which brings it back to life and retards the formation of algae and dirt and makes the concrete easier to clean.

 

 

 

We do a light acid wash to loosen dirt and algae. Waterblast to clean the surface of the concrete. Once dry we apply 2 coats of a colour tinted concrete sealer which completely covers the concrete in a new colour of your choice, with a non-slip additive in the second coat.

Need concrete pavers, cobbles or tiles cleaned and sealed? Sealing enhances the 'look' and makes them easier to keep clean.
