Concrete is considered one of the most important materials in the construction industry. It has been used in the construction and paving industry for many years due to its strength and durability.

It can produce deeper issues or just appear on the surface of the road due to cosmetic problems. In colder areas of the city concrete spalling is more common. Due to heavy snow on the roads, concrete freezes expand and create pressure which results in breakage and damage of the road. Furthermore, deciding chemicals is also a big reason for spalling, because they allow more water to enter in concrete which increases spalling and damage to the road. Spalling can occur on any kind of concrete-like decorative concrete or functional concrete.
