spalling repair

Spalling concrete is a common problem where part of the surface peels, breaks or chips away. Also known as scaling, it is the result of a weak surface that is susceptible to damage. Spalled concrete may be caused by any of the following:

  • Freeze-thaw cycles
  • De-icing salts
  • Poor finishing techniques
  • Improper curing
  • A bad concrete mix

Sealing is recommended to prevent cracks from occurring. It prevents moisture-related spalling which can lead to water damage, cracks, and structural damage. Sealer should be applied about 4 weeks after the concrete is placed and a sealant every few years.

The correct amount of concrete mix is key to preventing water damage. Air entrainment is a critical element of concrete mixes that provides resistance to freezing and thawing. Air cells in concrete are resilient and expand to facilitate the flow of moisture, helping to prevent severe damage.
