Concrete Repairs Vancouver
Residential Concrete Repairs
We have many repair options available when it comes to residential repairs. Whether it be recoating or refinishing concrete for damaged or cracked spots, we have the solution for you. Residential repairs can have quite the spectrum as it can range from a stairway to a small downtown town home to re-doing a driveway for a large luxury home in West Vancouver. Similar to how each type of concrete poured is slightly different, each home and repair will be unique in how the repair is approached. Residential concrete damage such as cracks in driveways, floors, or walls are typically caused by the earth around the structure or due to natural weathering and wear and tear. While the temperature swings are relatively mid compared to the rest of the country, the pacific northwest still sees a decent temperature swing which can cause concrete to expand and contract. If you ever come across a crack in your homes foundation, a newly formed tripping hazard in your driveway, or just need to get your floors touched up, our concrete contractors will make you concrete look like new again.
Commercial Concrete Repairs
Sometimes the trickiest part of a commercial repair is for your team to notice the damage in the first place. With so many moving parts going on in a warehouse, a small crack could go unnoticed which could lead to much larger problems in the future if left unattended. When large a heavy machinery is used on a daily basis in a warehouse, there is a chance that there could be consistent use over some weak load-bearing soil which could create a gap or a void beneath the control joints of the concrete. If this issue is not looked at, it could lead to displacement, flexing of the concrete, and potential sagging which will create an hazardous work environment.
Concrete settlement is another issue we see with commercial and industrial properties. This is caused when the soil surrounding your building is not properly compacted or when water infiltration leads to soil washout. When concrete settlement is left untouched, it can cause structural and major interior damages. Your business could forced to temporarily shut down until repairs are finished if this is not dealt with early days. If you ever see a concrete crack or any irregularities in your concrete, don't hesitate to give us a call and we'll make sure you problem doesn't get any larger.
Concrete Leak Repair
Seeing a wet spot and cracked concrete is unsettling for everyone but cracks in the foundation of your home and basement aren't an uncommon thing. With how gravity and water pressure works, concrete that is poured below grade (below ground level) are prime candidates for leaks if a crack appears. If the concrete that is cracked is non-structural, a polyurethane injection is usually the best method to fix the problem. Polyurethane works perfect in wet situations as water will accelerate the curing process which makes it a good solution for active leaks or any crack with mud, sediments, or moisture trapped in them. Performing this type of repair from the inside of the home is the preferred method compared to excavating and installing a waterproof membrane. The former is much less costly and invasive to your property. Our concrete repair team will be able to diagnose what is best for your concrete crack and provide you with the best solution.
Concrete Crack Repair
Cracks in your concrete can be caused by a plethora of things and not only is it not a great sight to look at, cracks that are left unattended could potentially cause some serious damage to your property. If the crack we are dealing with is structural, using an epoxy injection is the most common method. An epoxy injection is great for structural cracks as once the resin is cured, it can return the integrity of your concrete due to how strong bond is. This type of repair is typically done on above grade (above ground level) concrete as there is less chance of moisture present. Epoxy does not do well with moisture around which is better suited for a polyurethane injection.
