Concrete Cancer And Its Causes
Concrete cancer occurs when the concrete slab’s steel reinforcing starts rusting. Because of the rusting, the steel inside the concrete expands. As a result, it displaces the concrete nearby, making it brittle. The concrete then cracks, making matters worse.
Concrete cancer signs:
- Leaks occur in top concrete surfaces
- Bubbling (plating) of concrete render
- Rust stains that appear to leak from inside the concrete
- Cracking and delaminated concrete (Concrete Spalling)
Various elements can lead to concrete cancer. Your building may experience spalling concrete because of different reasons.
For example, spalling concrete may happen due to:
- Pouring substrate poorly facilitates the flow of moisture into it via voids and cracks.
- Insufficient reinforcing steel preparation during the pouring of the original concrete.
- The reinforcing ends’ proximity to the surface is too much. So when it rains heavily, the water might leak through. It causes the oxidation of lime and other chemicals inside the steel.
- Using incompatible metals that are too near each other. It triggers a reaction that enables the water to get into the slab.
- Bearing weight leads to stress fractures or overall wear and tear. Because of this, the water enters the concrete and reacts with the steel.

Concrete Patching Repairs
We patch all concrete all over the Gold Coast, for instance, off form or precast concrete. In most cases, concrete patching is essential for off form, precast and in situ concrete. Our team consists of highly skilled patchers. Due to this, they can quickly patch concrete, and you cannot tell a blemish ever existed! Our technicians work hard to ensure that your concrete surface goes back to its previous look.
Why is it important to patch precast concrete?
Precast concrete is different from regular concrete because of its manufacturing method. We manufacture and cure standard concrete on site. Meanwhile, we produce precast concrete in a controlled surrounding. We manufacture and transport to the construction site for installation as per the name.
Most people in the building sector prefer precast concrete. The reason is it has enhanced quality. When concrete cures off site instead of onsite, it increases the quality of the materials and artistry. Also, this process is much safer, and the formwork cost reduces. We use precast concrete in various architectural applications. It is available in multiple sizes. We use it in entire facades and clad parts.
Why choose us for the building repairs on the Gold Coast?
During the construction of precast concrete panels, patching is necessary to fix any minor flaws. When an inexperienced contractor handles the patching, the flaw is more evident. Therefore, hiring an expert like us is essential to undertake the patching.
When precast concrete panels are erected, patching can be needed to correct minor flaws. It is vital to hire one of our professionals to perform the patching, as improper patching by a novice can make the blemish more noticeable.

What does caulking involve?
Caulking describes material and procedure that we have used for years. We mainly refer to caulk as sealant, and it is a physical and non-structural compound. Our team delivers caulk in a water and air tight non-porous seal. We use this flexible sealing compound to close gaps in windows, floors, walls, and different structures. The aim of using this product is to prevent the entry of:
Alternatively, we use it as a component to stop fire. Moreover, we use caulk to seal joints even if the sealing materials do not have the same substance. Caulk provides a seal, and it reacts differently depending on its material. So because there is a wide range of caulking options, it is vital to pick the correct caulk for the proper purpose. For example, caulk is necessary to build up into a hard mass in various situations. However, for other uses, it has to be flexible. Furthermore, some of our clients want to stain or paint the caulk surface. As a result, it blends in together.
