Remedial


The CPR team has the experience, qualifications and knowledge to deal with a wide range of remedial issues.

Our staff include tradesmen, painters, renderers and builders; personnel with backgrounds in civil, electrical and mechanical engineering; and talented architects and designers.

All our tradesmen have passed stringent training requirements and follow our safety protocols and quality control checks.

The result is a remediation process that is competitively priced and rigorous to ensure the best outcome for your property.

CPR has a solution to every remedial issue:

  • Concrete spalling
  • Mud Cracking
  • Efflorescence
  • Structural cracks
  • Brick cracking
  • Cracked render
  • Drummy render
  • Delaminated render

Concrete spalling is the deterioration of steel reinforced concrete, and is generally characterised by the appearance of cracks and red rust. In severe cases, concrete sections completely break away from the reinforcing steel bar (known as “rebar”), exposing the rebar to the elements.

Mud cracking in render occurs when the cement mix is applied to dry or hot building surfaces, or an incorrect ratio of sand and cement mix and when the mix is lacking in bonding agents. Substrate movement and the lack of control/expansion joints can also cause problems.

Efflorescence is the migration of a salt to the surface of a porous material, where it forms a coating. The essential process involves the dissolving of an internally held salt in water, or occasionally in another solvent. Efflorescence is caused by moisture in the structure. It appears as salts on the paintwork.

Structural cracks can be caused by building movement and settling, the buildup of pressure from backfilled soil, concrete spalling and structural faults.

Brick cracking can have numerous causes, including moisture movement, uneven settlement of foundations, sliding surface layers or building on variable foundations.

Cracked render occurs when the cement mix is applied to dry or hot building surfaces, or an incorrect ratio of sand and cement mix and when the mix is lacking in bonding agents. Substrate movement and the lack of control/expansion joints can also cause problems.

Drummy render occurs when the cement mix is applied to dry or hot building surfaces, or an incorrect ratio of sand and cement mix and when the mix is lacking in bonding agents. Substrate movement, moisture beneath the render and the lack of control/expansion joints can also cause problems.

Delamination of render occurs when the surface of the building hasn’t been cleaned properly prior to application, moisture or excessive thickness of render.
