Concrete Silo Restoration and Coatings in Fort Dodge, IA
TMI Coatings, Inc. (TMI) is a painting and restoration contractor that restores and waterproofs the exterior of concrete silos. Spalling concrete occurs on silos due to moisture entering cracks causing rebar to expand. TMI identified spalling concrete, removes the inferior concrete, sandblasts or wire brushes rebar and repairs the void; TMI utilizes non-sagging mortar to fill the void, which is made for vertical applications, unlike standard mortar. To protect the newly applied mortar, TMI installs elastomeric waterproof coating to the exterior of concrete silos. Concrete silo restoration requires specialized equipment to reach the areas as they could range in heights of ground level to 150+ feet in the area and unable to access via aerial lifts. We safely rig the silos with OSHA-approved procedures and equipment.
