Concrete has served as the quintessential element of the construction industry for hundreds of years. It is simple to produce and highly durable. But it is not indestructible. Over time, concrete degrades due to several factors including exposure to outdoor elements, water, and heavy use. The ability to properly prevent and restore concrete is critical to how long structures are able to serve their purpose safely and efficiently.
While extremely strong and durable, concrete is a porous substance not immune to damage from chemicals, pollutants, and moisture should it be left unprotected. Too much damage can lead to extensive surface issues and even structural failure.
Building a concrete structure is very different than repairing and restoring a deteriorated structure. The skill sets required are very different. With all the variables causing damage to varying concrete infrastructure, it takes a team with the knowledge, experience, and track record to achieve the desired results.
Contech Services, Inc. has successfully completed hundreds of concrete repair jobs on some of the most well known landmarks and infrastructure in the country. Since 1993, the organization has parlayed their passion and innovative spirit into every job, resulting in a reputation as the foremost experts in the field of concrete repair.
