Concrete Repair Pittsburgh PA
Repairing concrete is complicated and requires specialists who know what they are doing. This allows for a quality job to be done the first time around. The contractors or subcontractors should have multiple years of experience and a great working relationship with customers, foundations, engineers, and other pourers that might need their services.
Concrete repair should be done as quickly as possible so that the site cannot be blocked off and the team can continue with their work. The longer a job goes undone, the higher cost it requires once repairs are badly needed. For example, if a car is parking over a pothole for months before anyone fixes it, it’s most likely that replacement is necessary since cars have constantly used that area. In addition, concrete will crack with time as humidity levels shift thus, requiring frequent touchups throughout any major construction project.
What Causes Cracks And Other Concrete Repairs?
Cracks are the most common reason for concrete repairs. There are multiple causes of cracks and other damage in concrete ranging from weather conditions, vehicles driving over the area, poor drainage, and more.

How Does It Work?
- We first inspect the area and determine what is needed to be done.
- Then, we clean the surface by removing any debris or loose concrete to get a much better understanding of how to proceed.
- After this, we will precisely measure out where we want holes to be dug so that steel bars can go in and act as reinforcement for the slab, which is then filled with cement grout to stabilize everything.
- We will then repair exposed areas using exposed aggregate techniques or other materials depending on what is best.
- Finally, we will apply a top-coat to the repaired area and clean up the surrounding so that the surface looks as if nothing had happened.
- We can also do some minor repairs, such as concrete polishing which raises the height of an area and restores its overall look. This is usually done on roads or near pools or patios where skid resistance is essential.
