Precast Concrete Wall Repairs

concrete crackIf your Concrete Wall has developed hairline cracks or small holes, you can and should repair it immediately to avoid the damage growing and causing a weak spot in your security.

Firstly, clean the area around the cracks or small holes using coarse sandpaper. Make sure you remove all dirt and dust from the wall.

Next, you need to soak the area around the small holes or cracks and keep wet for a few hours. Doing this will prevent the dry concrete from absorbing the water from the cement grout once you have applied it.

Mix the cement and water in a metal bucket to form a thick. Smooth grout. You need to stir continuously to prevent any lumps from forming.

Next you need to fill the hairline crack with the cement, using a trowel. You can use the trowel handle tip to pack the grout firmly and fully into the holes. Always press and spread the grout into the crack and over the edges, then smooth the grout down with the flat side of your trowel.

Cover the repaired cracks and holes with large plastic sheet, which you must tape with duct tape.

For 5 days, you need to dampen the repaired cracks or holes with a little water, then cover again. Do this every single day for the 5 days.

You can then apply a silane-based sealant to the repairs and a few cms all around the cracks or holes, to ensure a good, stable seal. Use a synthetic bristle paint brush for this.

Honeycomb in ConcreteMake sure you check your walls regularly for any sign or cracks or holes, then repair immediately to prevent any cracks extending or widening, and holes enlarging.

Security is very important today, and in no way must you allow any cracks or holes to stay unattended, thus giving would-be intruders an easy way into your property.

We, at Country Wide Walling, seriously recommend that you get the professionals to do any mending or replacing on your precast concrete walls, as this will ensure that the repairs will be done professionally and last a very long time.

What type of maintenance is required?

precast concrete fenceIf you install a precast concrete wall or fence, virtually no maintenance is necessary. You can, however, paint it if you wish to change the colour, but, as colour is added during the manufacture process, it is not necessary to paint, unless, as stated, you wish to have a colour change.

You will never have to pay for painting, oiling , resealing or rust removal, etc. You will only need to wash the wall periodically should it get dirty. This is a simple task, using your garden hose.

As individual components can be replaced should they get damaged, repairing the walls is equalling uncomplicated, and inexpensive, as you do not have to do repairs to the entire structure.

warped wooden fenceDue to the fact that the casting and curing is done before the walls are erected, the structure will be solid and long lasting, and will be able to withstand the harshest climate. The structure is also not prone to rust, mould, insects or rot.

You can be assured that your wall or fence will not fade or warp with time, and will remain aesthetically pleasing for many years, and give you the privacy and security you require for your family and property.

It is not only the colour of the wall, but also the texture and design, which remain aesthetically pleasing, and give value to your property.

First impressions count, and your wall is the first visual contact people have with your property. Country Wide Walling take pride in our products, and, therefore install walls of the highest quality and durability, as well as many designs and textures to please our clients.

Advantages of Precast Concrete Walls

PRE CAST COMPOUND WALL MOULD

When compared to site-cast concrete, precast does have a lot of advantages:

1.    Precast is concrete, manufactured in a controlled casting environment, making it easier to control the mix, placement and curing, then transported to wherever it will be erected.
2.    The quality can be controlled and monitored easier in a controlled casting environment.
3.    Bad weather is not a factor, as you can cast in any weather, and get perfect mixes and methods.
4.    Less labour is required.
5.    Once on site, precast can be installed immediately, as there is no waiting for it to gain strength.
6.    As you have the ability to tightly control the manufacturing process, you get an extremely durable concrete.
