To maintain a property's concrete surfaces we Inspect the concrete areas regularly. This will help to identify any potential problems early on, such as cracks, stains, or fading. If the area is showing some damage or wear we take preventative action to stop it. If it is determined that the concrete area of concern is in need of attention or repairs then we will inform you of the need for additional work.
We will clean the concrete surfaces and remove dirt, debris, and oils that can damage the concrete on areas needing maintenance. After cleaning we will protect the concrete from water damage, staining, and fading by sealing the concrete.
To prevent the damage from getting worse we repair any cracks or damage to the concrete surfaces promptly. Concrete cracks should be filled with a crack filler when they are Wider than 1/8 inch. This is the width at which a crack can allow water to seep through and cause damage to the concrete. Deeper than 1/4 inch is the depth at which a crack can allow water to reach the reinforcing steel in the concrete and cause it to rust. Some factors to consider include the size and depth of the crack, the type of concrete, and the climate.
Here are some of the benefits of maintaining concrete surfaces:
- Extends the lifespan of the concrete. Concrete is a durable material, but it can be damaged by water, staining, and fading. By regularly maintaining the concrete surfaces, property managers can help to extend their lifespan.
