Re: Repair of Damged Concrete

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]


You might want to put a fiberglass jacket down to a couple of feet below the
mudline (is it called that on a beach ?) .  I've seen this done on a bunch of
bridges over saltwater canals for the exposed pier piles.  The piles consisted
of concrete filled steel pipes.

There have been a good number of evidently successful pile repair projects
over time.  Depending on the general condition of the pile and bars at the
waterline you can remove the affected concrete clean and treat the bars and
encase the section on a grout.  You probably want to talk to people like
Master Builders and maybe Sika about  there experience and case histories.
