Commercial and Industrial Services
Concrete Grinding Services understands that having a warehouse or large manufacturing area commands a lot of maintenance and repair. Thats why specialize in a number of services to keep the foundation of your building up to code and safe. There are a number of items that could become a hazard and actually slow down your production and/or eliminate the functionality of some parts of your building. Whether it be a trip hazard or joint filling to protect the slab itself, CGS has the solution for you.
Very few of our clients understand the process or the importance of joint filling.
When expansion joints or cracks go unfilled, they create a situation, where your foundation is compromised. Your foundation will no longer be air tight OR water tight therefore effecting the integrity of your slab.
Joint filling is the process where the expansion (cold) joints, (which are cut into the slab when your foundation is first poured in order to prevent any major cracking), or cracks that have been caused from your foundation settling over time, are cleaned out and made free of ALL debris.
Then a bond breaker or backer rod is installed in the joint to prevent sagging of the filler, (this is typically either a fine aggragate or sand.)
Finally a filler is installed which can either be single component flexible urethane joint filler or a two part fast cure polyurea joint filler. The latter of the two are used when time is of the essence.
With this simple process, you can ensure that your foundation is not only stronger but safer. Your foundation will also last a lot longer due to an even greater prevention of air and water intrusion.
