Breaking the Cycle of Surface Scaling on Concrete Flatwork

New England has seen a growing epidemic of sidewalk scaling, a deterioration of surface concrete that presents an aesthetic concern, a tripping hazard, and at times, a perceived waste of time and money.

In this presentation, we will discuss the causes of concrete scaling and explore ideas for correcting this trend.

Mass Timber: A Revolution in Mid- and High-Rise Construction
