Kostenstufen der Betonsanierung, oder warum es nicht immer besser ist, sofort zu sanieren / Stages of expenses for restoration of concrete structures, or why it is not always the best solution to restore immediately
|Published in:||Restoration of Buildings and Monuments, August 1999, n. 4, v. 5|
Restoration of concrete structures implies repair of damage and a surface treatment which prevents future damage of the load bearing structure in case it is renewed in time. Depending on the performance of the protective surface treatment the substrate has to be prepared more or less carefully. On the one hand it is worth while to apply an inexpensive solution appropriate for a given situation and on the other hand to predict the optimal time for a necessary intervention. Different types of surface treatments can be attributed to discrete stages of expenses. In this contribution it is shown that based on a reliable analysis of the actual state, the cheapest type of restoration can be found in an unambiguous way and executed at the right moment. At the end examples are given. The necessary investment can be optimized. Finally, it will be underlined that money spent for quality control during the construction process can be considered to be an investment yielding 17% interest.
