Corrosion Mitigation

Reinforcing steel corrosion is one of the leading causes of structural deterioration in reinforced concrete structures. This corrosion initiates as the structure is subjected to moisture and chlorides from de-icing or naturally-occurring salts. Walter P Moore provides corrosion evaluation services and the design of corrosion mitigation systems. Our corrosion services are commonly for structures such as bridges, parking garages, industrial facilities, marine structures, commercial buildings, and condominiums. Our corrosion evaluations typically include in-depth visual observations, nondestructive testing to classify the extent of corrosion that cannot be seen, and materials testing to determine the properties of the existing concrete cover. Walter P Moore designs repairs to restore structural integrity and design durability measures that can reduce the rate of future corrosion, thereby extending useful service life.
