Whilst concrete is one of the most durable products on the market, it is not invincible. Over the years, you concrete will eventually fade or crack, due to external elements. As McKinney Concrete Works are the specialists in concrete, we are able to assist you in the diagnosis of the issue. We then assess the area to locate the cause of the issue, so that it can first be removed or fixed before we start the rectification works. This is what sees us get customer satisfaction from the dedication we put into our work and ensures that we get further business through word of mouth.
Diagnosis – Upon first viewing of your damaged concrete, we are able to diagnose the issue with your concrete. This can be anything from simple earth movement, corner chipping due to heavy items being dropped, moisture then heat, direct harsh sunlight or even concrete cancer. There are a number of ways of rectifying your concrete if it is addressed quickly. If you think there may be something wrong with your concrete, please contact us as soon as possible. This will give the best possible chance of saving your concrete, rather than having to bear the costs of replacement.
Assessment – Here at McKinney Concrete Works, we are not in the business of doing quick patch jobs. We are here to accurately assess the issue so that it will not occur again in the near future. The cause of the issue needs to be addressed to be sure that rectification can be done correctly and is long lasting. If you are experiencing raised concrete, this could be due to a tree root growing underneath the concrete. For this type of issue, the tree root would need to be removed, or the same issue will occur again quickly. If your concrete has dropped, it could be due to earth movement. As this is a natural element, there is nothing we can do to change it, but we can lay additional concrete to ensure that it is level again.
