Using patch work for concrete bridge repair

The thing to keep in mind with patch repair is it makes it easy to replace localised areas of deteriorated concrete. Examples of this include spalls and delaminations. We can apply this method to various projects, including concrete bridge repair.

A bridge can face a lot including, but not limited to, the elements and heavy loads. When an issue arises it is important to address it even if it is just to establish whether or not it is serious. Even something small, such as a crack that does not compromise structural integrity, can still be an issue you need to take care of. Whatever the reason for repairs, our highly skilled team use top of the range tools and specialist knowledge to help.

The strength of the repair work will be high and so will the quality of the replacement material. Aesthetics are another consideration that is important. As well as providing something functional, the finish will look great so that the patch doesn’t look obvious.
