The most difficult material employed in the construction of various structures is concrete. Concret is by far the most available and reliable construction material. However concrete can be damaged by some chemicals and some environmental factors if not well maintained. Heavy traffic on the concrete and chemicals like salt and water are some elements to keep off from the concrete. When there is a lot of moisture in the atmosphere our walls could easily be damaged. Water softens the concrete slowly by slowly making it vulnerable to so many other degrading materials.
Cracking of the walls is as a result of the walls not having enough water during construction or sipping in of excess water during the winter. This must be addressed well during the building of the structures where proper ratios of the construction materials are used to make it air tight. Water proof substances should be added to the concrete to make sure that no water is allowed to sip in in times of winter and heavy rains.
Some sprays are sprayed on the walls to ensure that the walls are protected from all the agents that can lead to its weakening. Also ensures that water used to mix up the construction materials does not evaporate . Heavy traffic bearing concretes are protected by the use of precast, or reinforced concrete with steel bars. The strength of a concrete wall or structure is reinforced by the steel bars that are used in the construction process. By using steel bars in the construction of concrete walls people are sure to have durable walls. Concrete grounds require that the ground is first stamped and then pouring the concrete follows to ensure even distribution of the ground strength. Uneven grounds in concrete construction is not allowed.
Deicing salts also cause a lot of damage to the concrete. They cause slow destruction to concrete walls by destroying the concrete. As a result the structure disintegrated, and the concrete becomes weak. There are various methods that can be used to make sure that the floors are not affected by these degrading factors. A concrete overlay is a thin coating of concrete overlay that ensures all the uneven ground have been leveled. Sometimes polymers chemicals are added to it to increase its strength. Protect The exterior and the interior of a building by use of cyclic sealers. It can be mixed with water and also oil for ease of application.
Other sealers ensure that moisture doesn’t penetrate walls. In areas where there is a lot of water in the atmosphere it is good to use this method. Destructive agents are to our concrete walls are properly managed by use of chemicals.
