Common Issue Requiring Concrete Ceiling Repair

Concrete ceilings, while known for their durability and longevity, can develop several common issues over time that necessitate repair. One of the most frequent problems is cracking. These cracks can range from hairline fissures to more significant gaps. They typically occur due to thermal expansion and contraction, structural settling, or excess load on the ceiling. Minor cracks are often more cosmetic but can become larger and compromise structural integrity if not addressed promptly. In some cases, these cracks can also be indicative of more serious underlying structural issues.

Another common issue is water damage, often resulting from leaks in the roof or plumbing systems. Water seepage can cause the concrete to deteriorate, leading to problems such as staining, spalling (flaking or chipping of the concrete surface), and even corrosion of the internal steel reinforcements. Over time, continuous exposure to moisture can weaken the concrete, posing a safety risk. Water damage not only affects the structural strength of the concrete but can also lead to mold and mildew growth, both of which pose health risks to those in the building and deteriorates indoor air quality.

Spalling is another significant issue that often plagues concrete ceilings. It is typically caused by the corrosion of the steel reinforcement bars within the concrete. As these bars rust, they expand, creating internal pressure that leads to the concrete cracking and flaking off. Spalling not only affects the ceiling’s appearance but also its structural integrity. In extreme cases, it can lead to chunks of concrete falling, posing a severe safety hazard. Regular inspections and maintenance will help you identify these issues early on and addressing them before they escalate into more significant problems.

What We Offer

At Custom Painting, Inc., we are equipped to effectively handle a variety of concrete ceiling repair projects. Our expertise extends to repairing cracks in concrete ceilings, regardless of their size, orientation, depth, or extent, including:

  • Thin or wide cracks,
  • Cracks running vertically or horizontally,
  • Superficial or deep-set cracks, and
  • Localized cracks or those spreading across a large area.

One of our go-to solutions for cracks up to half an inch wide on horizontal concrete surfaces is a specialized concrete crack sealant. This sealant blends seamlessly with the concrete’s natural color and possesses self-leveling properties, eliminating the hassle of manually smoothing it to match the surrounding area. Additionally, we utilize a range of concrete repair materials, including latex patching substances and epoxy-based products, tailored to each specific repair need.

In cases where the concrete ceiling has extensive, deep cracking, a full replacement might be necessary. We can either install prefabricated concrete slabs or pour a new slab on-site, depending on the situation and requirements.

For ceilings with water damage, our approach includes first identifying and rectifying the underlying issue, be it compromised roofing or leaking pipes. Only then do we proceed with the cleaning, repairing, prepping, and painting of the ceiling.

For spalling damage, our process involves cleaning the affected area, removing any loose concrete, treating any rusted steel reinforcements, and applying a robust repair material mixture. We ensure this mixture is given ample time to cure before applying a fresh coat of paint, restoring the ceiling’s appearance and integrity.
