Concrete is one of the most durable construction materials available, but all too frequently we ignore its maintenance. Many of the techniques called "coating", "protection", and corrosion mitigation are in reality, maintenance of concrete. The lifespan of concrete structures can be significantly extended by pro-actively addressing deterioration and durability issues through keeping water and other deleterious materials out of concrete after it has properly cured. The true sustainability of concrete structures can be realized by considering the energy consumed during its manufacture, its inherent properties in-use, and its long service life.
