Concrete is a huge part of your curb appeal and public safety. It is usually used for sidewalks, stairs, curbs, gutters, parking bumpers, dumpster pads, dock pads, catch basins, walls and ramps. Concrete offers outstanding durability and longevity, if you have proper installation, well-designed site structures and regular maintenance.
As concrete ages, cracks and holes may form in its surface. Ongoing concrete maintenance is important! If water is allowed to enter these openings, it can cause extensive and costly damage to the underlying substrate.
The most effective form of concrete repair is to remove and replace the deteriorated areas. Once the replacement process is complete, we at Exterior Maintenance Service recommend a curing period of at least 4 to 7 days. During this curing time, traffic should be diverted around the effected area because early load exposure can damage the new surface.
