Stamped Concrete Repair & Rehab
The beauty and affordability of stamped concrete is a big part of what makes it such a popular option with both commercial and residential property owners, allowing them to enjoy the look and texture found in more costly materials such as wood, tile, brick and more at a fraction of the cost.
Unfortunately, the aesthetic appeal created through the intricate patterns of this type of concrete system can quickly become a great disadvantage due to the way it makes stamped concrete repair so complex.
Concrete is known to be an unforgiving surface because of the way defects and substandard workmanship is made glaringly apparent, in some instances leaving no other alternative than to have the system completely removed. In fact, many who specialize in concrete repair are simply unable to help bring a damaged stamped concrete system back to life.
Common Types of Stamped Concrete Damage
Concrete is a material that’s prone to cracks, and preventing such damage from happening in the first place requires much diligence, starting with proper installation, and continuing through to the regular maintenance, yet cracking can still be bound to occur, posing an especially frustrating problem when it comes to stamped concrete.
Severe cracks in newly laid concrete can be caused by a wide variety of issues, such as using the wrong strength of concrete, improper drying, weather elements, or having too much water in the mix, – all of which has to do with improper installation techniques, leaving property owners in search of stamped concrete repair services within just a few months after installation, or less.
Spalling, Scaling and Flaking
One of the greatest benefits of living in the Dallas Fort-Worth area is the excellent subtropical climate, but the weather extremes sometimes experienced can cause stamped concrete to flake or scale. While snow days may be few, the freezing temperatures gets to the water of the concrete’s capillaries. The water expands as it transforms into ice, breaking away the concrete’s surface.
A flaking surface undermines the beauty of stamped concrete, leaving it unsightly and allowing it to fall increasingly faster into greater levels of disrepair. Moreover, concrete spalling, just like cracking, is type of damage that can be caused by poor installation practices, leaving the stamped surface weak and damage-prone.
Combine weak, poorly installed concrete with the temperature highs and lows of Dallas, and damage is sure to ensue. However, thanks to ATD Concrete Coatings, property owners don’t have to give up hope of having their damaged stamped concrete system restored to a lovely like-new condition.
