Restoration is a process that restores a building or structure to its original state and may be required after structural repairs, when the final goal is to return the structure to its original condition, prior to the damage or aging.
Structural concrete restoration consists of repairing deteriorated concrete and rusted reinforcing steel to bring the structure back to its original specifications and condition. Structural damage is often found on elevated slabs, decks, balconies and parking areas. In Florida, most structural concrete damage is caused by moisture intrusion resulting. ACS can repair and restore the concrete surface returning it to its original condition, however highly improved after implementation of a waterproofing membrane to prevent future water intrusion.
Damage to your balcony or deck caused by construction deficiencies and water intrusion can present in a number of ways. When your balcony is over a living space the sub flooring should contain a properly installed waterproofing system. Improper installation allowing moisture and water intrusion ultimately leads to deterioration, damage, rot, and even mold. ACS will locate the issue, make the appropriate repairs, install proper waterproofing materials and restore your balcony to allow for long term success.
Restorations are also common for historical buildings. Historic Restoration is the act of preserving, conserving and protecting the building to maintain its authenticity.

Similar to a restoration, a renovation will likely require repairs, however the larger focus will be on refreshing and renewing the space, with updates and replacements. An example of renovating a space, without requiring a full-scale remodel would be installing new flooring and changing the paint color or adding texture to the walls. While a relatively simple change, it can have a huge impact on a space. ACS works with you to determine the best options for your space, based on your vision.
Find the hidden potential within your own four (or more!) walls. The interior renovation involves making changes to the existing footprint that can completely transform the space.

The exterior of the home makes the biggest first impression. You may have an amazing foyer or a professional chef's kitchen, but if the exterior is outdated or in need of a makeover, the interior will be unable to shine.

ACS can help you improve your curb appeal by creating an inviting space without changing or adding to the structure.
