Abstract:

Concrete is normally thought of as a solid, reliable, and mostly maintenance-free construction material. Indeed, if properly designed, produced and placed, concrete will provide long service with little maintenance. But, all structures inevitably age and deteriorate, regardless of how well they were designed and built. In todays economic climate, the demand for new construction has diminished significantly. Owners are looking for ways to cut costs, and of ten end up renovating more and building less. In this environment, construction professionals must be thoroughly knowledgeable of how to properly renovate and repair concrete structures, and how to ensure the new facilities they build will remain durable, and not deteriorate prematurely.
