Understanding and Preventing Concrete Corrosion
Concrete is one of the most widely used of all building materials — and for good reason. Not only is it relatively inexpensive, but it also possesses a durability and lifespan second to none. However, things can still go wrong for a concrete surface. This is especially true of concrete containing rebar rods and other types of metal reinforcement.

Yet as the metal begins to corrode, it can cause problems for the concrete, including cracks, spalling or even outright failure. If you would like to learn more about concrete corrosion and what can be done to prevent it, read on. This article will provide a useful overview of the subject.
