Default Concrete Repair - Florida Keys - Marathon

This board has helped me get some great contractors so now I am asking about concrete contractors in the florida keys.

I live in Marathon and have a poured concrete walk and floors. Its starting to develop some small spalling(cracking) down here its important to get this corrected when it starts. We did repair it a few years back and had a very bad experience with the contractor(neighbor) will never do that again.

I am hoping that someone knows a reliable concrete restoration/repair contractor that I can contact that does work in the middle keys.

All help is appreciated!

Mark.

Mark, give Woody a call at Coastal Docks LLC , I had him do a complete seawall and concrete deck. He was at least reasonable and honest. ( he billed me what he quoted me) . I will say their flat work could be better. But it was acceptable. If you want to see his work, PM me and you can see what he did for me.

Chip out the spalling , grind or blast the surface, seal/coat/fill with an epoxy concrete. We do it to roads and bridges all the time. However, this is often a "temporary" fix and the concrete will continue to degrade especially if the spalling is/was due to something like contamination(salt or sulfur) in the concrete mix water (which can be common near the coast)

Just a suggestion, would paver be a better solution? Not glued down but rather a layer of sand then paver right on top of the concrete. Would matter what the concrete does thereafter aside from something catastrophic.

Get it done before it get worse. If it's older work ,the re-bar was not treated and once water gets to the steel, it will pop the concrete. Got to get to the steel and clean,treat it. It's a never ending problem in the salty areas. Did alot of this repair work while in the marina . Cut and chip out concrete, acid wash steel, coat steel ,repair concrete. Never ending.
