Pneumatically applied mortar is the most economical and successful means of restoring concrete structures wheredeterioration is relatively shallow and the restoration areas large and irregular. However, periodic protective applications are necessary in areas of severe exposure to seal hairline shrinkage and temperature cracks that may pass water and perpetuate deterioration of the parent structure. Large deep deteriorated areas under severe exposure are economically restored by the installation of a metallic membrane.
