Concrete Repairs

Knowledge is important to concrete repairs and LR Building can make recommendations that reduce costs. An accurate survey will establish the true cost of repairs at the outset thus avoiding the possibility of cost implications during the contract period. LR Building also provides remedial treatment for new buildings. These relate to problems usually caused by a building mistake during construction. Concrete Repair is not a standard process as the quantity of work required and the nature of that work may vary greatly.

The methods available for repairing concrete may be divided into the following groups:
• Hand applied mortars
• Sprayed concrete and mortar
• Re-casting with concrete
• Flowable grouts and concrete
• Electro-chemical processes
• Corrosion inhibitors
• Filling and injection of cracks
• Sacrificial anodes

The specification should be detailed and cover all aspects of the work including progressive investigation and testing, surface cleaning, preparatory work, and the precise nature and sequence of the repair operation. It should specify the repair methods and materials, and any additional aspects such as weather precautions, material thicknesses and consumption, and curing procedures.


LR Building responsibilities when serving as the Main Contractor include:

  • Applying for or assisting in the application process for building permits
  • Management of change orders and general conditions
  • Providing all materials, labour, equipment and services
  • Monitoring schedule and cash flow
  • Maintaining accurate records
  • Ensuring a safe and secure project site



Every construction is unique in scope, but process is systemically applied to each construction project.

We seek to get involved early in the design phase so that we can manage the project more efficiently, provide effective building solutions, and identify challenges early on to mitigate design changes after construction commencement.

This involves detailed pre-construction planning crucial to successful construction and on-time delivery, and allows the client and team a clear pathway to the  construction phase, and through to completion.
