Spring is a Great Time to Repair Concrete in Alabama
The spring season in Alabama is a good time to take a look around your Alabama home and see if you are in need of concrete repair. The summers in Alabama get very hot, so the spring season is the best time for your concrete repair in Alabama.
Concrete problems in Alabama occur due to dry soil. Concrete absorbs water from the soil and when the soil gets too dry, the concrete becomes brittle and cracks. Another problem that can cause concrete problems is too much water. When the soil beneath the concrete becomes too saturated, the soil will heave, causing the concrete to heave. Not only can these concrete issues become and eyesore, but can also become a tripping hazard to you, your family and visitors. Let the experts at Nichols/GroutTech inspect your concrete and offer the best repair solutions for your concrete repair in Alabama. We are your concrete contractor in the Birmingham, Alabama and surrounding area experts.
If concrete cracks are not repaired, they will allow moisture, salts, and other contaminants to penetrate the concrete and attack the rebar, causing the possible destruction of the entire concrete slab.

If we find any of these issues with your concrete, we will offer the best solution for your concrete repair needs. Repairing concrete is much less costly and much less disruptive than replacing concrete. We use polyurethane/and or epoxy injections for concrete repair. Epoxy crack injections is also referred to as concrete welding. These injections will fill the cracks and also lift and level your concrete back to its original structural load requirements. Epoxy injections protect the rebar, stops water leakage, and is a technique for welding the cracks in concrete back together.
Another area where epoxy injections can offer repair is in the delamination of concrete structures. Examples are bridge decks and self supporting structures where the most delamination is shearing of the concrete. Epoxy resins are injected to fill the hollow plane and fill the voids, preventing further delamination.
