for Concrete Removals
We understand what is important to concrete repair contractors. Bridge deck repair is necessary to keep our nation’s roadway system in service. We have developed the Fast Track Selective Hydro-Demolition Bridge Deck Overlay Method which is used by many highway departments and contractors as the fastest and longest maintenance free construction method to repair and preserve bridge decks. The service life of bridge decks are extended by 25-30 years when this method is used with minimum disruption to traffic.
Total surface selective hydro-demolition is much faster and more productive than concrete removal with jackhammers, therefore project durations are minimized and disruption to the general traveling public is kept to a minimum. Concrete demolition can also be performed during night and weekend closures if high traffic volume is an issue.
The Fast Track Selective Hydro-Demolition Method selectively removes delaminated and chloride contaminated concrete and avoids the unnecessary removal of sound concrete. The rough surface left by this process provides an excellent bond. The original concrete surface and any exposed reinforcing are cleaned and ready for new latex modified concrete overlay.
The shorter closure time reduces the cost of construction traffic control, work zone safety measures and road user costs. Deteriorated and chloride contaminated concrete is removed reducing maintenance costs and extending the service life of the new overlay.
