It is best to choose the commercial professionals who are aware about the latest products and industrial applications and have a good history of similar expertise when it comes to choosing a quality, specialty contractor for your facility. While some contractors exclusively focus on one industry, such as roofing, others have a wide range of specialties, including: –
There are 3 types of methods to repair concrete spalling, including: –
  1. Formwork Grouting Method.
  2. Patch Repair Method.
  3. If the integrity of the structure is threatened, structural strengthening has to be considered.
The steps are rationalized as follow: –
  1. Remove all the cancerous concrete.
  2. Follow the engineer’s provided scope of work.
  3. Ensure the integrity of the exposed reinforcement.
  4. Prepare and treat the existing concrete and steel reinforcement, and replace any steel that is too badly corroded or rusted.
  5. Put in place strategies to prevent the recurrence of the issue.
    • Examples include the installation of drains, new slabs, or stronger flashings.
    • To stop water ingress, apply waterproofing membranes or coatings.
    • The use of appropriate and authorized concrete restoration products.
    • Permit adequate time for the repairs to cure.
  6. Keep an organized record of all work done so that the engineer may access it.
  7. Make-good: Restoring the structure to its original (or better than original) condition.
    • The facade could be improved with new textures, paints, or protective coatings; or
    • Potentially restoring the facade to its prior condition.
  8. Document the precise location and information about the restored areas.
  9. Industrial flooring
  10. Concrete
  11. Heritage buildings
  12. And more
Efficiency is an advantage of choosing a contractor with reputable expertise across several industries. You may use a single contractor to complete the project from floor to roof since they are familiar with you, your company, and your requirements.

What to aim for getting a specialized contractor?

  • How long has the contractor been in operation?
    It’s a good idea to evaluate a commercial contractor’s length of operation and reputation maintenance while making your decision. Example: The contractor A with 30 years of experience can grant a 10 years of warranty period for their application of waterproofing system with a price of RM100,000.00, whereas the contractor B with 2 years of experience can grant a 10 years of warranty period for their system with a price of RM80,000.00, How to evaluate? Which to choose? The contractor B may grant a 10 years warranty, but how if you cannot get his after-sales service anymore after the work is completed with leakage problem?
  • Does the contractor have a good reputation in this area?
    Example: What do the reviews on their website say? Or recommendation from trusted peer?
  • Does the contractor is the approved applicator of the product?
    Example: Do the contractor certified by the manufacturer or supplier? The product proposed by the contractor is it reliable? Do they have the knowledge for the application of method? Some products come with product warranty (by supplier) and performance warranty (by contractor).
  • How important is safety in contractor selection?
    A commercial specialist contractor’s decision-making process should always prioritise safety. Seek out specialised contractors with a set strategy for managing safe job locations. Choose contractors who are recognised by ISO 9001:2015 & ISO 45001:2018 for their devotion to safety and dedication.
  • Quality
    The calibre of their work and workmanship may be clearly attested to by previous projects and repeat customers. Look for examples of past work on the website or other internet presence of your potential contractor.
