Frequently Asked Questions
What are slab-on-grade post tension repairs?
Slab-on-grade post-tension repairs refer to the repair of concrete slabs that have been constructed using post-tensioning techniques. A slab-on-grade is a concrete slab that is poured directly on the ground and is used for a variety of purposes, such as flooring in buildings, driveways, and parking lots.
Post-tensioning is a technique used in the construction of concrete slabs that involves placing high-strength steel cables (post-tensioned tendons) within the concrete before it is poured. The tendons are tightened after the concrete has been poured and cured, creating tension within the concrete that helps to prevent cracking and failure.
Slab-on-grade post-tension repairs refer to the repair of cracks and other surface damage in concrete slabs that have been constructed using post-tensioning techniques. The repairs may involve repairing the concrete surface, or repairing the post-tensioned tendons themselves.
Some benefits of post-tensioned slab-on-grade repairs include:
The post-tensioning provides additional strength to the concrete, making it more resistant to cracking and other forms of damage.
Improved load-bearing capacity
The post-tensioning helps to distribute stress evenly across the slab, increasing its load-bearing capacity.
Slab-on-grade post-tension repairs are often more cost-effective than replacing the entire slab.
The repairs can often be done with minimal disruption to the surrounding area, making them a good choice for repairing concrete slabs in busy locations.
The repairs can restore the appearance of the concrete slab, making it look new again.
