The Team You Can Trust

It’s pretty simple, corrosion is a serious problem when it comes to rebar. Corrosion can undermine the strength and durability of reinforced concrete systems.

If you’re constructing a bridge, condo on the beach, or other reinforced concrete structure, the threat of corrosion should be a concern. When a project is finished, exposure to the environment can lead to corrosion of the steel rebar, which will weaken the integrity of your structure. Sure, years down the road, the damage can be repaired… but repairs are expensive.
