Crumbling concrete is caused by one, or many, of the following factors:
- The concrete was not properly made and age has weaked the concrete to a point of crumbling.
- The concrete was not properly made - too much or too little water was added. You see this a lot with new concrete.
- The concrete is saturated with water or moisture. If concrete becomes too saturated for too long it will slowly break away at the concrete on a pore level. The longer the water is there, the larger the pores get. When the pores get large enough they break away and connect with other pores - turning into holes and eventually crumbling.
Depending on the severity of the crumbling, there are solutions:
- If the concrete is crumbling and the crumbling won't stop, you may have to replace the concrete.
- If you can remove the crumbling concrete on the surface, you want to seal the concrete with the Armor L3000 to strengthen the concrete by up to 45%.
- If the concrete is saturated with water or moisture you want to remove the crumbling concrete and seal the concrete with the Armor L3000. The sealer will stop and prevent the intrusion of water and moisture up to 100 PSI and 0.015 WVT. Guaranteed for a lifetime!
