We have successfully positioned ourselves amongst the reputed organizations, engaged in service providing of housing & infrastructure solutions. Remediation within the construction industry is the key element to obtaining a structural sound dwelling.
Concrete cancer is caused when the steel reinforcement within a concrete slab begins to rust. As the steel rusts it expands, displacing the concrete around it, causing it to become brittle and crack thus accelerating the process. Signs of concrete cancer include: Crazing and cracking concrete (concrete spalling)
Honeycombing concrete occurs when the pour period had been vibrated sufficiently causing all the aggregate to gravitate to the bottom of the surfaces. This can cause several problematic issues to a structure such as; weakening a supporting beam, cracks, delamination, & invitation to concrete cancer. We at Remseal devise structural strategies with our manufacturers to provide our clients with the best solution possible. A simple injection system can increase the Mpa of the structure along with prevent future defective problems.
Rising damp mainly occurs along blockwork/brickwork due to the lack of or deterioration of a DPC (Damp Proof Course). Without the proper or lack of a DPC excess ground water can begin to absorb and travel along the brickwork/blockwork causing “rising damp”. The existing of rising Damp can cause severe structural damages to the masonry walls along with causing other elements of the dwelling to invite pests, bacteria, mould (black), structural integrity if load bearing walls.
Each individual project is different in a way we at Remseal require an extensive site inspection along with a possible diagnostic investigation to determine the failures of the DPC. Several occasions have occurred prior in which we devise a strategy to construct a noninvasive method by installing additional drainage outlets & ventilation outputs to prevent the dangerous build up of condensation causing the creation of bacteria.
