Concrete needs maintenance.
The most common deterioration mechanisms observed within reinforced concrete structures are associated with cracking due to a restrained change in volume, embedded metal corrosion, chemical attack and freeze thaw damage. These deterioration mechanisms can be prevented or managed within properly designed structures by utilizing quality materials and workmanship throughout initial construction. These deterioration mechanisms can be managed in existing structures through implementation of a preventative maintenance program throughout the life cycle of the structure. However, concrete structures are historically neglected due to the renowned reputation of the material. Concrete’s status as the most widely used building material in the world creates the false perception that it does not need maintenance. Concrete needs maintenance. When quality assurance methods are not implemented or fail to be effective, reinforced concrete is susceptible to serious environmental threats that will compromise structural integrity, safety, and aesthetics which ultimately reduce the useful lifespan of the structure.
