FOUNDATION SERVICES

Cracking Foundations

Are you seeing cracks in your foundation? Don’t wait! It’s usually simpler to fix something early on rather than waiting for a disaster.
This homeowner waited too long and now the grade beam is pushing through the outside basement wall. Big trouble. It could have been avoided if they’d called when the first cracks started to appear. We’re your Winnipeg foundation repair specialists.

Foundation Waterproofing

Water and moisture in your basement can cause mould, cracks in the floor and can even result in cracking basement walls, which can also result in even more water entering your home. Even new houses are subject to leaking basements!

House Levelling

Winnipeg soils are notorious for shifting and moving. The Red River clay absorbs tons of water when the weather is wet, and so it can shrink dramatically when it dried out. This means that your house can actually move and shift. Sometimes this movement causes damage to your foundation and your house must be levelled to repair and prevent further movement.

Common Reasons Why Concrete Requires Repair

Concrete is widely used for everything from foundations to bridges. Water tanks, buildings, and even dams can be made with concrete. It’s a strong, durable, and well understood material. But that doesn’t mean it’s going to last forever without a bit of attention and sometimes repair. In fact, concrete today isn’t even the same as the concrete that was poured for your commercial parking garage twenty years ago. Below are some of the most common reasons that concrete requires repair.

Rebar Corrosion

Concrete is often reinforced with steel rebar. The rebar is meant to help keep the concrete from crumbling. Unfortunately, the opposite seems to be the real problem. If rebar is exposed to excess carbon chlorides or dioxide, it will begin to corrode, causing the concrete around it to crumble too. Rust can burst concrete.

Alkali-Silika Reactions (ASR)

This is a serious problem for some concrete structures that were built before the reaction was well understood. ASR is a reaction within the concrete due to the chemical make-up of some aggregates. Alkaline cement will react with water, form a gel, and then cause cracks in the concrete.

Abrasion

Water will wear away at concrete over time, which is commonly seen in pipes. Abrasion can also be due to physical wear from items such as forklifts.

Freeze-Thaw Repair

Air-entrainment and unprotected concrete or protective coating on concrete can wear off and concrete can become saturated with water, which then expands when it freezes. It then breaks down into its stone sand and cement Fortunately, it is possible to repair concrete that is showing signs of any of these problems. But with Foundation Pros concrete repair team, you can often avoid a complete tear down. Most importantly, the cause of the deterioration should be identified so that the concrete repairs last and the problem doesn’t reoccur.

Reasons for Concrete Restoration

Some of the reasons that concrete in a parking garage or structure needs to be restored have to do with water. Water can leak through cracks or failed joints. Water can also contain corrosive substances and chlorides that breakdown concrete or cause corrosion. And the alkali-silica reaction (ASR) in some older concrete structures can also break down the concrete, possibly requiring a repair or complete rebuild.

Rebar corrosion can set in and it rusts, it damages the structure of the concrete.

CONCRETE RESTORATION

In parking garages and other structures

While concrete may seem solid and permanent, time and wear will start to show on any concrete structure or building. Especially in parking garages, where de-icing salts along with the weight and movement of vehicles can put a lot of pressure on the structure, it’s critical to watch for signs of degradation and to have repairs completed in a timely manner. Restoration projects can be completed on bridges, floors, and any structure made of concrete, as long as the problem is clearly identified and a good solution is well implemented.

Another common problem is rebar corrosion, as rebar can rust and damage the structure of the concrete.

Visual Signs

Visual signs of concrete deterioration are cracks, rust stains, efflorescence, (white powder chalky ) water leakage, concrete spalling or flaking off or areas that sound hollow when tapped on Other signs of deterioration include wear, exposed aggregates, discoloration and settlement.
