Whether residential buildings are owned by a real estate company or by individual owners, their maintenance has to be highly effective, as budgets are often minimal, while service expectations are as high as for any other kind of building. Consequently, the challenge is increased as we try to combine effective management and a longer service life.
Residential buildings are also exposed to a variety of conditions and numerous potential sources of degradation. Degradation of residential buildings may affect the foundations, parking elements, balconies or concrete siding panels.
Among the concrete durability issues that can be covered by SIMCO’s expertise are reinforcement corrosion in concrete elements, freezing and thawing of slabs or siding, formation of expansive products in foundations, etc.
SIMCO’s team of concrete experts can review or design a variety of concrete mixtures to meet durability and service-life requirements for commercial, industrial, and residential construction customers. We provide specialized services and technical support to meet the unique challenges of the construction industry and create leading-edge solutions that set new standards.
Over the years, our team of concrete durability experts has worked side by side with architects, contractors and owners to either restore or preserve the value of their property.
