If your concrete work is looking a bit rough and you are looking to replace it, you might want to hold off on ripping it all out until you have considered Colorado concrete repair. Replacing all the concrete can be quite an expensive proposition–even more so than installing it in the first place–and repair might just be the more cost-effective solution. If you want to restore the former strength and durability of your concrete and you don't want to spend a bundle doing it, concrete repair is definitely worth looking into.
There are many reasons why concrete would break down. Environmental stresses can cause much more severe damage than you think, and constant exposure to sun, moisture, and frost can really do a number on even the best-laid concrete. Even without taking physical blows and impacts from machinery and heavy equipment into consideration, considerable damage can occur in your concrete.
The action of the ground settling underneath the concrete can cause significant damage as well. Concrete slabs are typically laid over bare ground, which can shift and settle over time. When gaps develop in the ground underneath the concrete slabs, the cement can buckle and cave in. The result is a broken sidewalk with the characteristic appearance of graveyard tombstones. Apart from being rather unsightly to look at, concrete that has been damaged in this manner can be quite risky to walk on or even just to stand on.
