Steel Reinforcements

Steel Reinforcements

Fortunately this is only a detached concrete sectional garage, not the main house.

The steel reinforcements have started to rust. In so doing they expand resulting is this noticeable cracking to the concrete panels they are reinforcing. Structural stability is seriously undermined.

In this instance the garage will probably have to be demolished in the foreseeable future. If the problem occurs in living accommodation there are clearly major repair implications.
