Concrete is the single most ubiquitous material in construction worldwide. It is, literally, both the foundation and the backbone of modern buildings, modern cities and, it’s not too big a stretch to say, modern life. And rightly so, because concrete is strong, durable, and cost-effective.
But, as strong and durable as it is, concrete needs protection. It can also need repair and restoration. Damage caused by fires, earthquakes, and chemical spills can harm the concrete in a structure. As can overloading, impact, or foundation settlement. Defects in the original design or materials can result in structural problems as well. Age is also a factor as concrete, though strong and durable, will require strengthening or restoration over time.
We use the best, most precise technologies to diagnose, strengthen, repair and restore.
Among our services:
Surface Repair Repairing the damaged surface of concrete can restore the structural function, protect the surface itself and the underlying concrete. Deeper problems often begin by creeping in through surface damage, making surface protection and repair a valuable investment in your structure’s future. Systems for surface repair include overlayment, resurfacing, formed repairs, cast-in-place repairs and shotcrete.
Protection An ounce here may well be worth more than a pound down the road. Coatings, sealers, membranes, liners, cathodic protection and overlays can all help prevent problems before they start.
Waterproofing Water is concrete’s most persistent enemy and one that invades any weakness in any structure, burrowing in through cracks, joints, failed waterstops, and other surface damage. Replacement joints and sealants, waterproofing membranes, and crack grouting are among the weapons Injectech uses in the fight to stop water intrusion.
Strengthening. An already damaged member or structure, or one which is a likely candidate for damage, can be helped through the addition of steel, FRP composite systems, concrete and other materials. At Injectech, we will use the best, most precise method to strengthen your structure.
