Vertical cracking or wall separation due to overstress of the horizontal reinforcing are the main symptoms repaired with post-tensioning—a very common problem. To solve this issue, Marietta Silos will install high-strength post-tensioning strands around the wall exterior. These strands can replace all of the original steel reinforcing, and assuming the concrete is still sound, the silo can be returned to its original load capacity in an economical manner.
Remember, Marietta Silos has more experience in silo repair than any other company in the United States. If you have problems or suspect a problem, contact us for efficient, cost-effective solutions.
