Concrete Repair work should be specified by a competent person or company experienced in the causes of concrete and reinforced concrete deterioration and repair. Topseal is practice according to the code of practice governed by Concrete Repair Association (CRA) and we offer remedial service, as do some specialist consultants. The final choice of repair method and materials will depend on a number of factors, including practical problems of how the work can be carried out. In all cases, the repair method must comply fully with code of practice according to BS EN 1504*:
- Effects of repair work on the environment (e.g. noise, dust, etc.).
- Health and safety considerations.
- Structural considerations (e.g. do any of the repaired components require strengthening).
- Preventing or slowing continued deterioration.
- Appearance of repaired concrete.
- Durability of chosen repair method (e.g. does a second or third intervention need to be factored into a long-term repair strategy).
Repair Materials should be properly selected for the repair required, according to the Repair Principle chosen comply with BS EN 1504*. Due regard should be given to the reputation of the manufacturer, who is now expected to comply with BS EN 1504* and should, therefore, possess CE marking for the product.
