concrete cancer - Advanced Solutions Group Pty Ltd
We regularly undertake concrete cancer repairs at a variety of property types.
We’re currently undertaking works to a unit block with concrete cancer in the balcony slabs. Our team have fortunately been able to grind and scabble away all the concrete to reveal that there is less than 10% loss on the rebar. This has been caught at exactly the right time because now we can treat the steel and ensure that further corrosion in these areas does not occur. This is a lucky client, some are not so lucky & find that their rebar has corroded further, which requires replacements and costs huge amounts of money spent on engineers.
Abseiling is a way to cut down access costs for concrete cancer repairs. We provide these services and more!Top
If your balcony has concrete cancer, it’s probable that you’re living in a coastal location. It’s probable that your building is more than 20 years old and that the salt has had a chance to get in and corrode the reinforcement bars that exist within the concrete. It’s more than likely that you’ve had some concrete drop to the ground below and this is causing significant public liability issues for your body corporate.
So how do you go about repairing concrete cancer, particularly on a balcony slab edge? This is a particularly difficult access task and would involve alot of scaffolding or work platforms if done the traditional way. The great news is, that you can do these difficult access repairs by abseiling, or industrial rope access as the industry calls it. Concrete cancer on a balcony can be addressed and worked on in a safe way by this technique.Top
Do you have a concrete cancer repair which is located in a difficult to reach area of your building? By now you’ve probably been told that the access costs alone for the works are high and there are probably significant inconveniences involved in setting up scaffolding or getting mechanical access to the area needing work.
The good news is, concrete cancer repair can be done via a technique called industrial rope access. Our team of specialist concrete cancer repair professionals can access your facade with minimum intrusion and carry out the works. Get in touch with us for a quote on your project.Top
Our port macquarie division are equipped with full scale industrial rope access concrete repair resources, aimed at being able to provide cost effective and professional concrete cancer, concrete spalling and inspection services.
Cutting out all the access costs that would normally involve scaffolding, ewp etc, reduces the cost of works in most cases. For this reason, our team are able to undertake small or large scale concrete repairs and enable our clients to channel more money into the works themselves, rather than the access costs.Top
Concrete cancer can develop if left untreated, into a major issue for any structure. The corrosion of reinforcement bars severely weakens a structure if allowed to spread and can also pop alot of concrete off the facade, falling to the areas below. This presents massive liability issues should somebody, or somebodies property be injured or damaged if this occurs. The key is to get in there early and treat it properly.
Concrete cancer is common on the mid north coast. Our team in port macquarie can come to your building, get access to the facade by rope access and carry out a concrete cancer repair. Don’t let it spread, get in there early and prevent further problems down the line.Top
This was an account of the process of getting a concrete cancer job quoted & fixed by one client.
I had what appeared to be concrete cancer in my building and some of it was very hard to reach. We got a couple of quotes and they came to huge amounts of money.
I mainly just had concrete guys out who proposed using scaffolding & EWP equipment to get to the repair areas, but somebody told me that abseilers could do it.
So I phoned a rope access concrete repair company who came out straight away and had a look at it. The guys who came didn’t seem to be phased by the access issues like the other companies were. They looked at the job in detail, did some preliminary planning onsite and supplied me with a quote within 24hrs. I was amazed. The price was only about 60% of the average price of the other quotes I got.
I booked the job with the abseilers straight away. They came a few days later and started the job. They were extremely professional and undertook the concrete repairs safely and methodically. All I can say is that i’ll never look at a facade repair the same again! Rope access is the answer.Top
Concrete cancer can be explained fairly simply. It is the result of corrosion to the reinforcement bar in the concrete. Usually this happens close to the surface and then as time passes, the corrosion spreads through the rebar and can become a significant structural problem.
Repairing concrete cancer early is the key to preventing ongoing problems. If your repair needs are in a difficult access area, try calling an abseiling specialist for assistance in reducing the costs of access.Top
Concrete cancer can be spread across numerous hard to reach places on a building’s exterior by the time it’s discovered. This often requires large amounts of money to be spent simply setting up access to the areas of concern. This is actually avoidable by utilising abseiling techniques to descend to any particular area of a facade to carry out concrete cancer repair works.
Our personnel have all got loads of experience in dealing with concrete cancer and providing our customers with cost effective repair projects.Top
Concrete cancer at a unit block can cause widespread damage to a building if left untreated. Repairing concrete cancer can be a very expensive exercise, particularly where it has not been detected early. Most concrete cancer specialists will scaffold you building to undertake the works, causing disruption to tenancy and unnecessary access costs. Industrial rope access concrete cancer repair can simply the process and reduce costs by eliminating the need for scaffolding.Top
Sydney is a corrosive environment with much of it in close proximity to salt water. Salt carries long distances in the air and concrete just loves to suck salt water into itself. This often triggers corrosion of reinforcement bars which eventually results in concrete spalling and left untreated, full blown concrete cancer.
When dealing with concrete cancer repairs, companies often use very expensive access equipment which on top of what is already going to be an expensive item of repair (depending on the size) increases the costs of the project by renting scaffolding or elevated work platforms. One way to do concrete cancer repair in a flexible and cost effective way, is abseiling concrete cancer repair.
Don’t just trust any old abseiler to do this job for you, however. Make sure you get a good company who can supply you with references of the concrete repair work they have done and who have experienced personnel undertaking these tasks.Top
