This 157,000 square ft industrial warehouse, located in San Antonio, Texas, offered an amazing opportunity for over 30 years of experience to culminate in an aggressive, cutting-edge, quality, value-oriented process. The warehouse is a concrete tilt-wall, dock high structure with a steel joist and built-up roof system. The warehouse owners were not satisfied by the conventional repair approach that had been offered to them, removing and replacing the slab. 

The owners purchased the facility for long-term investment purposes and consulted with a local concrete contractor who assessed that over 40% of the floor would require total removal and replacement. There were expansion and control joint deterioration issues; failed epoxy repairs; a need to remove over 5000 threaded imbedded screws anchored in the floor; dock door thresholds that needed steel structure demolition and rebuilding; and residue accumulated due to prior operations. The concrete damage was a result of a lack of maintenance, overloading, abuse, curling, chemical damage, impact damage, poor mix design and finishing. 

The repaired surface offers greater strength, structural integrity, aesthetic value and longevity than that offered by any traditional repair method. Additionally, it is estimated that the owner saved around $100,000, which in today’s economy is no small accomplishment. The elimination of the need to remove a significant amount of concrete prevented much of the traditional waste produced in this type of endeavor.
