Once considered to be the job of a maintenance man, the repair of rusting rebar in a highly corrosive area has meant that many older structures are in an unnecessarily dilapidated state. The facts are such that cheap repairs by unknowing craftsmen will lead to very expensive future repairs, sometimes even total loss of the structure.
Building owners and managers are slowly being educated to understand the meaning of restoration. Unfortunately, most are not ready for the cost associated with structural rehabilitation. With new building codes on the horizon, education at both building official levels & state inspector levels will mean that band aid repairs will no longer be tolerated where there are public safety concerns.
As a leader in the field of concrete restoration, R&J can benefit building owners and managers from both the knowledge of our personnel and the application of the latest materials. Today's repair mortars offer a product which is more dense, and is stronger, providing a better overall repair. Deck coatings which offer elastomeric waterproofing abilities serve as an insurance to protect the investment in the concrete.
