It is important to address spalling concrete when it first starts to appear. Spalling is one of the first sign of a concrete problem. Spalling is concrete which has broken up, flaked, or become pitted as a result of result of poor installation and environmental factors. It is also caused by improper finishing of the concrete.
At the least, concrete spalling can be purely cosmetic. However, spalling concrete can also result in structural damage. If this is not repaired, the freeze thaw cycle will further deteriorate this concrete.
Spalling concrete can be repaired. If you see signs of spalling: pitting, rough and flaky, cracking or chunks of concrete breaking loose, you need to fix the problem quickly to stop further structural or cosmetic damage. Contact A-1 Foundation Crack Repair.
