- There are construction defects on almost every job unless it is a very small job or unless the Owner is extremely fortunate. The list of likely defects includes cracks, spalls, rock pockets, delaminations, chips, gouges, rained on slabs, uneven slabs, etc, etc. On a typical job the repairs may have to be done to slabs, vertically, or overhead. This presentation will discuss identifying the cause of the defects, owner expectations, repair methods, repair material selection, surface prep, bonding, curing, etc. In some cases it will be important for the repairs to be aesthetic as well as functional and we will cover how to accomplish that. It will also explain the best ways to specifty concrete repair. You know you are going to have construction defects. It is always far easier to specify the repair materials and methods that cover the vast majority of potential construction defects in the original specification.
