Beautify your home! The Keys are a beautiful place to live and enjoy the tranquility of the water and the amazing views, but all magic has a price. Homeowners pay the price of rapid structure deterioration due too the weather changes, huracanes and the salt from the ocean which is..well, everywhere! Concrete faults, stucco breaks off, and siding rotts; and let’s not get started if water infiltrates in the interior on the house!
Worry not! We got you covered, from structural changes and repairs to cosmetic aplications we can tackle your project. Water damage repairs, interior and exterior. Custom aesthetic projects. Concrete spawling and multiple stucco finishes. Siding replacement and repair. New windows, doors and shutters (to protect your home is a must). Fascia replacement and repair. We also build sheds and detached garages.
Give us a call! We’ll be happy to come and assess your project and offer you an estimate.
Corrotion is the main reason for concrete deterioration. Many commercial structures in the keys were built from concrete, and in due time, deterioration of the concrete will begin. There are two main reasons why concrete corrodes: general corrosion from carbon dioxide and pitting corrosion from chloride ions (aka: salt). Reinforcement exposed to carbonation for over long periods of time can eventually cause widespread cracking and spallin of the concrete. On the other hand, exposure to chloride ions from water and the environment that leaks to the concrete can cause pitting corrosion and further deterioration.
The visual signs of serious concrete deterioration are cracks, spalls and rust stains. It is important to decide on the type and scale of restorative works. Some inadequacies such as poor maintenance and already possible poor craftsmanship of the builing can accelerate penetration of the concrete by the atmospheric carbon dioxide and water borne chloride ions from the environment.
We have the equipment and the skilled team to restore your building. A rundown crackled and rusty building is not likely to appeal to customers and in the Keys we depend on those customers that come down to enjoy their vacation; aesthetics play a major role when people decide between ex: hotel A- bright, clean and new looking over ex: hotel B- with the rusty decaying walls. Same goes for any other type of business.
Maximize the potential of your business by upgrading your structure. We will handle your interior buildouts and exterior remodel and renovation.
