What Issues Could Arise With Concrete In My Home?

There are several issues that could arise with concrete in a home, including:

  1. Cracks: Concrete can crack due to a variety of reasons such as temperature changes, settling, and shifting of the ground beneath it.
  2. Moisture problems: Concrete can be porous and allow moisture to seep in, which can cause a variety of problems such as mold and mildew growth, water damage, and structural issues.
  3. Stains: Concrete can be stained by various substances such as oil, grease, and rust, which can be difficult to remove.
  4. Scaling: This is the loss of the surface layer of the concrete, typically caused by freeze-thaw cycles or exposure to chemicals.
  5. Spalling: This is the flaking or chipping of the surface layer of the concrete, which is typically caused by exposure to deicing salts or other chemicals.
  6. Unevenness: Uneven settling of the soil beneath the concrete can cause the surface of the concrete to become uneven and create tripping hazards.
  7. Structural issues: Over time, concrete can become weakened and may develop structural issues such as cracking or shifting that can compromise the stability of the building.
