What causes concrete to deteriorate?

Surface defects are one of the most common concerns with concrete, and they can occur for several reasons.

Answer

Surface defects are typically caused by faulty materials in the concrete, too much water added after mix has been delivered, or the lack of experience of the installers. Surface defects usually appear during the 1st to 5th year.

Be sure to choose an experienced concrete company. It is also important to have a warranty that covers surface defects at least 10 years.
