Replacing Corroded Embedded Steel
When the strengthening steel incorporated within the construction of your property becomes the cause of its instability, this can be a significant worry. Safety and cost are the immediate concerns, which is why selecting the right experts to advise on the situation is essential.
What’s going on below the surface?
Moisture and oxygen can have a detrimental effect on steel. If your walls are compromised by water ingress, hygrothermal movement or any other action that brings air and water in contact with the steel there is a risk of it rusting, reducing the steel’s effectiveness. As it does ferrous oxide is produced which expands with slow but destructive force, pushing surrounding brickwork out of the way, causing cracking, lifting and bowing.
