Repair Spalling Concrete Before Winter – Boston

Joseph Coupal - Friday, October 11, 2013

Winter is on the way, certainly is will soon be time to salt your driveways, walkways and garages. If you have spalling concrete already, winter salt will only make it worse. Uneven walkways are not only hazardous to pedestrians, but they cracking and uneven garages, stairs, and walkways also lack structural integrity.

Salt for de-icing on your businesses driveways and parking structures can cause pitting or spalling on concrete surfaces. If concrete areas are already pitting, it is a good idea to move forward in repairing spalling concrete before the winter begins.

Salt can have a detrimental effects on concrete.  As soon as your concrete walkways, stairs and garages start to deteriorate or degrade, the water can enter, freeze and expand, causing more damage over the cold weather. The freeze and thaw cycles causes spalling concrete.

One of the first signs of a problem with your concrete is Spalling. This process begins because the concrete was improperly finished.  If this is not repaired before the winter begins, the cold weather and extreme temperatures will further deteriorate the concrete and cause larger problems.
