Concrete Inspection & Restoration Engineers In Boston, MA
When you invest in concrete evaluation, restoration and protective systems for your deteriorating structures, we will guide you to achieve a long-lasting approach geared specifically towards your particular needs. Concrete has been the foundation of construction projects for centuries due to its strength and resilience. Even so, factors such as weather, environmental influences, chemical attack, age, fire damage and structural behavior can damage concrete over time. Through concrete restoration and concrete crack repair services, you can significantly extend the serviceable life of your structure and prevent further damage.
There are several methods for determining the strength and integrity of your concrete, as well as the needs of the concrete due to years of deterioration from mechanisms that are often overlooked by some professionals. Measures such as concrete slab relative humidity and vapor emission for flooring and coating applications, concrete petrographic analysis and chloride ion testing allow us to understand the health of the concrete and determine whether there’s an issue.
With this comprehensive approach, the appropriate design and material selection can help to avoid accelerated deterioration from misdiagnosis and improper materials. Protective systems such as high-performance coatings, galvanic anode protection and penetrating chemical treatment can be used to extend the serviceable life of your structure. This allows you to use your funds to directly address the cause of deterioration and save money in the long run. At Vital Structures LLC, our consultants and concrete engineers can help you determine the state of your concrete and what measures are necessary to extend its life span.
