CONCRETE FACADE REPAIR
The modern architectural styles of high-rise residential and commercial buildings regularly features exposed concrete framing elements and infill windows. These features are economic in terms of cost and stylish in that they highlight the structural expression of the building. When properly executed exposed framing elements present few problems. However, if there are any delinquencies in design, construction or material choice exposed frames can cause accelerated deterioration of building exteriors, particularly in cold or humid climates. Cracking of concrete, corrosion of embedded reinforcing steel and premature peeling of protective or decorative coatings are some of the damages these facades can incur. Breaks in the building’s façade then lead to water leakage, air infiltration, safety concerns and unpleasant appearances.
