Why refurbish buildings?
Construction is temporary and after years in existence structures deteriorate. With this in mind we must be prepared for possible faults that can arise in buildings so that they can be repaired which will without a doubt prolong their lifespan. In addition to the aging process that buildings undergo, their exposure to the harsh elements particular to the coast leaves them susceptible to increased deterioration. Therefore if any irregularity is detected, such as cracks, detachment of some part, subsidence, etc., we should be contacted without hesitation to inform us about what fault has occurred in your community.
Can the refurbishment wait?
Early detection of a structural problem means a simpler and therefore more economical repair.
Our experience in repairing and refurbishing buildings focuses mainly on the
STRUCTURAL REPAIR OF FLOOR SLABS AND BALCONIES
This fault is often caused by the lack of concrete coating, the embedding of metal components in the slab, such as the banister handrails and are also caused by the lack of gutters.
REPAIR OF CONCRETE PILLARS
This fault usually occurs mainly in the ground floor pillars, since they are usually most exposed to the elements. The concrete that protects the reinforcement can lose alkalinity and consequently the steel begins to rust and deteriorate the structure. Garages or wetrooms with poor ventilation and which are prone to humidity are particularly susceptible to the deterioration of these structures.
SLAB AND BEAM REPAIR
As mentioned previously, pillars and other components are damaged by humid environments, such as the ceilings of the top floors of houses due to water leaks on the roof, or indeed the floor on which toilets and kitchens sit.
STRUCTURAL REINFORCEMENT JOISTS AND PILLARS
In every phase of refurbishment there is a point at which deterioration is so bad that the component cannot be restored, so the decision must be made to install a reinforcement to replace that component. In the case of joists, a new metal beam is placed under the damaged one, providing support to the beam. IPE or IPN laminated profiles are usually the types used in homes afflicted by aluminosis (degeneration of cement). And in the case of pillars, the perimeter is usually reinforced with a metal casing, which is supplemented with new pillars around the outside.
There are times that due to the change of the features of the land, to unforeseen overloads, or under-estimating the size of the shoes, they must be enlarged and sized correctly to transport the loads to the ground, starting by increasing their dimensions.
REPAIR AND WATERPROOFING OF THE FACADE
In many buildings there are cracks on the cladding of the facade or dividing walls, allowing water to enter these areas.
REPAIR AND WATERPROOFING OF COVERED AND COMMUNAL AREAS
This problem we do not find indistinctly in works of advanced age and in works of recent construction. Primarily it is due to covers where the waterproofing has come to the end of its tether. On the other hand, this fault can be found in recent construction projects, and is often due to lack of perimeter overlaps, no expansion joints, as well as poor installation of the sheet.
REPAIR OF OTHER BUILDING FAULTS
We have only mentioned some of the more common faults that are found but there are many more out there. Above all else, the most important thing is that they are looked at and inspected by a technician. For this reason, contact ESCLAPÉS E HIJOS without any obligation and upon visiting the community we will report what faults we have detected in order to solve your problem. Do not hesitate to call us.
