This live web event has ended. Thank you for attending.


There are construction defects on almost every job, unless it is a very small job or unless the owner is extremely fortunate. The list of likely defects includes cracks, spalls, rock pockets, delaminations, chips, gouges, rained on slabs, uneven slabs, etc., etc. On a typical job, repairs may have to be done to slabs, or vertically, or overhead.
This presentation will discuss identifying the defects, repair material selection, repair methods, surface preparation, bonding, curing, etc. In some cases it will be important for the repairs to be aesthetic as well as functional and we will cover how to accomplish that.
