Bridge and Dam Repair Vancouver

Concrete or joint repair work on bridges is made more difficult by access problems and the need to avoid excessive disruptions to normal traffic flow. Experienced Polycrete crews are able to design, fabricate and install the specialized and unique access equipment that is required for each project. Repair work is then done by specialist technicians using any necessary equipment, procedures and materials that are required. Equipment, including backup units, is available from our warehouse inventory to minimize delays. Our personnel also do routine sealer applications to bridge decks to protect concrete and minimize deterioration. Typical procedures used include:

  • Repair of deteriorated concrete and steel components
  • Repair of cracked or delaminated concrete by epoxy pressure injection
  • Repair or replacement of expansion joints and bearings
  • Deck surface preparation and deck sealer application
  • Installation of waterproofing coatings
  • Underpinning or grouting of abutments and piers
  • Concrete strengthening using external carbon fibre reinforcement
  • Structural modifications to increase load capacity or repair damage

Repair work at dams usually involves leaking cracks, failed expansion joints or concrete deterioration. Our crews have extensive and 100 percent successful experience in this repair work, using standard concrete removal and replacement or shotcreting procedures, epoxy or acrylate hydrogel pressure injection, control joint sealing or expansion joint replacement, pressure grouting.
