Concrete does need repairing from time to time to ensure its structural integrity, overall strength, and reliability.
What Causes Concrete Damage?
Other environmental factors include carbonation and chloride salts attack. Carbonation occurs when atmospheric carbon dioxide mixes with water to create carbonic acid which in turn reduces the alkalinity within the concrete and eventually causes corrosion of the steel and the eventual breakdown of the concrete structure.
Chloride (Salts) dissolved in the atmosphere, which when combined with moisture, can penetrate concrete and just like carbonation, attack the steel reinforcement within the concrete causing corrosion and eventual cracking and spalling.
