Last week we received the following in an email enquiry from a neighbour who lived opposite. They had observed the work whilst it was being carried out and have seen the results every day over the past 18 months:
“We live opposite the wonderful piece of work you did at [the house opposite ours] last summer and are considering having the paint removed and brick-work restored on our property at no 10. Could you please arrange for someone to contact me to discuss.”
As part of the ongoing program of works at London’s Whipps Cross Hospital we are carrying out concrete repairs to the balconies outside the A & E department.
Damage to concrete, often referred to as “concrete cancer” can be caused by water ingress and its freeze, thaw action, the presence of contaminants, the oxidisation of concrete reinforcement bars and other factors such as carbonation.
