It happens innocently. A worker is boring into concrete in order to fix an issue with a bathroom or HVAC system and, suddenly, they hear a BOOM! The floor vibrates. Expletives ensue. It’s a shocking moment and often the first response is to hope it’s nothing. Unfortunately, what has likely happened is a post-tension cable has been struck and snapped, and even though it can’t be seen, it can cause safety issues and problems down the road.
When accidents happen, give us a call. We hear from contractors and building superintendents frequently when post tension cables have been unintentionally hit by core drillers. This typically happens during work on HVAC systems and plumbing—especially installing toilets.
The good news is: we can help. HEXA is the Colorado expert in post-tension repair, with specialized training under our belts and the been-there-done-that knowledge to get repairs done quickly and seamlessly.
We understand that post-tension expertise is not something contractors have time to invest in. The best choice is to get our team in right away to repair the problem and return the building to a safe condition. And for building owners who don’t have an engineer on staff who can assess the damage, we do it for you, bringing in an engineer with the experience to diagnose exactly what needs to be done to get it done right.
When it comes to post-tension repairs, we’ve seen it all. Our experience and quality set us apart. Post-tension repairs can be tricky and no two jobs are alike. You can rest assured that we’ll do a fast, safe, and efficient job. Don’t be fooled by low bids. Unfortunately, we see others get into a job with a low bid only to bump up the cost with “unexpected items.” We don’t work that way. We have the expertise to bid it right the first time and we’re honest and upfront from the get-go so you aren’t caught with unpleasant “surprises.” If you suspect an “oops” has occurred on your job site, don’t delay, give us a call!
