What Causes Voids in Kansas City and St. Louis?
Void & Concrete Repair
Most people think concrete repair is needed for mature, existing concrete structures caused by outside elements. However, concrete repair can also be needed for newer construction. If concrete is so widely used in the construction industry, why does it sometimes form voids under the surface and deteriorate so quickly? Unfortunately, this may be due to environmental causes or human error. Some environmental causes are problems created by:
- Freezing and thawing conditions
- Drought-like weather conditions
- Chemical agents such as salts and moisture
- Decaying organic materials
- Shrink and swell cycles (excessive water)
- Soil erosion
- Hydrostatic pressure
Voids can also be caused by human error due to poorly compacted fill material, too much water added to concrete, inadequate concrete cover or structural overload. These conditions can weaken the concrete surface causing settlement, sinking, and shifting over time. The concrete may start to crumble, crack, flake, or chip.
