Concrete gets hit hard by anything from pedestrians to cars to weather. Although it’s meant to hold up against all of that, concrete, like all things, will eventually wear down. As you inspect your concrete lot, there are some signs you should look for that might indicate you need a repair.
Even if your commercial lot has only one or two small cracks, it’s essential that they are repaired in a timely manner. What happens to a small crack over time? It becomes a large crack, which then creates a host of other issues. The underneath layers of your lot might begin to crumble, other areas of the lot might become damaged, and moisture could create more and more cracks until your lot isn’t useable. If you notice even a small crack, contact our team, and we will happily repair it.
A hole in concrete isn’t something you should just look past. Holes can occur from too much pressure on a specific area, a sinkhole underneath your concrete lot, or various other reasons. These holes can cause injuries, car accidents, equipment malfunctions, and deterioration. If water collects in the holes, it could begin a freeze and thaw process that leads to more deterioration and damage.
Depending on your lot’s purpose, it could get exposed to some chemicals that will cause it to deteriorate. Paint, paint thinner, fertilizer, acid, oil, and other chemicals start to destroy concrete over time. Even when you have the surface cleaned, it is again exposed to a cleaning chemical, which ends up damaging it in the long run.
