The Dangers of Poor Concrete Scanning and Inspection

Concrete structures are vital components of our infrastructure, supporting everything from roads and bridges to buildings and dams. However, despite their durability, concrete structures are not immune to deterioration. Over time, various factors such as exposure conditions, positioning, presence of reinforcement, finishing, detailing, and curing can lead to deterioration, compromising the integrity of these structures. It is imperative, therefore, to conduct regular concrete scanning and inspection to assess their condition and ensure their longevity.
