Concrete Repairs & Solutions

A high percentage of our work is dealing with concrete spalling or concrete cancer. This occurs when supportive steel is exposed to air and water. Symptoms of concrete spalling are cracks and flaking in the concrete, a brown rust discoloration on the surface and bubbling behind concrete render.

If left unattended over time, the ‘cancer’ can spread into the steel structure, making the concrete structurally weak.

​Cracks are a common problem in concrete. Left untreated, the condition of the structure can become unsafe.

​It is important to diagnose and treat the source causing the concrete spalling before repairing the concrete. MDR Waterproofing is confident in offering a diagnosis of the cause and providing a long term solution.

Using the most advanced technologies in concrete repair and prevention from leading manufactures around the world, our technicians are IRP Internationally certified to ensure the professional installation of the best system.

Rising Damp/Damp Proof​

Rising Damp (salt damp) is ground water that rises up through the pores of a wall structure or can be caused by trapped condensation from within a structure. It requires very specific treatment.

Not only does this unwanted moisture cause structural damage by breeding mould, causing rot, damaging plaster, paint or wallpaper, if left untreated, it can also lead to health concerns.

External salt stains (ephorescense) may appear or mortar may crumble leaving the facade of the building unsightly.

Due to the serious nature of rising damp, MDR Waterproofing can provide you with a professional solution, addressing the source of the problem.
