Reinforced concrete structures suffer from a variety of problems which require repair in good time in order to prevent further deterioration. These range from initial construction defects and poor detailing to the effects of our modern environment over time. As many concrete structures are of significant height, the spalling of cover concrete presents a real and present danger for owners and occupiers. The correct assessment of the condition through accurate inspection and testing of any reinforced concrete structure is paramount for the selection of a durable repair specification.
