Can Water Damaged Concrete Be Repaired

Yes it can!

It’s called water degradation and can be caused by any number of things. Fire, aggregate expansion, bacterial corrosion, calcium leaching and many others.

Many basement floors get damaged by the high water tables and backed up sewers.

Untreated sewer water can produce hydrogen sulfide, which is then oxidized by aerobic bacteria present on the concrete surface above the water level. The sulfuric acid dissolves the carbonates in the cured cement and causes strength loss, as well as producing sulfates that can be destructive to the concrete.

Hardscapes Inc. has a solution to this problem. A clean up of the concrete floor and then sealing the concrete with a great decorative coating can preserve and update your damaged basement floor. This is a great alternative to replacing rugs and hardwoods.

Garage floor pitted & damaged from winter snow & salt?

Some experts claim that the fluids that drip from your vehicle and are left unattended are what cause all the pitting and damage to the concrete surface of your garage floor. In Canadian cities, winter climate conditions mean that road and highway maintenance requires snow melting products, so it’s very likely that salt is also responsible for some of that damage.

You don’t have to wait ’til summer to alleviate further damage. Here at Hardscapes we can do garage floor coatings all year long. Our polyaspartic floor coatings are able to cure even in our cold Calgary winter temperatures. 100% UV resistant, polyaspartic coating will provide years of easy maintenance and it’s non-skid texture ensures safety.

And…it’s not only practical but looks amazing too!
