General Contractor’s Guide to Concrete Repair

As a con­trac­tor, your job is to build, ren­o­vate and restore spaces to beau­ti­ful, func­tion­al new life. We under­stand that you have your client’s needs and bud­get at the fore­front of your mind as well as your rep­u­ta­tion. A cracked or dam­aged con­crete floor is clear­ly not the foun­da­tion for a last­ing project, and you want your rep­u­ta­tion to stand firm after the work is complete.

If you are notic­ing con­crete dam­age, it’s best to call a pro­fes­sion­al for an esti­mate and opin­ion, regard­less of what floor coat­ing you plan to install. Here at Kaloutas, and Kaloutas’s indus­tri­al floor­ing divi­sion, we spe­cial­ize in pre­ci­sion con­crete repair and removal, if nec­es­sary. We serve clients in the Greater Boston Area, Mass­a­chu­setts, Con­necti­cut, Rhode Island, New Hamp­shire and all across New England.

Read on to learn more about what expert con­crete repair and con­crete removal can do for your com­mer­cial floor­ing and foundation.

Indi­ca­tors of Dam­aged Concrete

If you’re see­ing crack­ing, chip­ping, or bub­bling it is like­ly that your con­crete has issues beneath the sur­face. Most of these issues stem from mois­ture con­cerns, and we’ll get to that in a minute. If you fail to address these issues before installing new con­crete coat­ings or con­crete pol­ish­ing, the dam­age will con­tin­ue to spread. How­ev­er, a ren­o­va­tion is an ide­al time to address these issues, so the new­ly refreshed space and con­crete seal­er will stand upon a firm foundation.

The Impor­tance of Mois­ture Mitigation

Most con­crete dam­age stems from mois­ture issues, some­thing com­mer­cial floor­ing pro­fes­sion­als can address for you. Mois­ture mit­i­ga­tion sys­tems can lim­it the mois­ture vapor your slab is exposed to or stop it com­plete­ly. This process sig­nif­i­cant­ly min­i­mizes dam­age and pre­vents mois­ture issues in the future.
