Concrete Repairs

Cracked, drummy or rust stained concrete are all symptoms of concrete spalling. Caused by a range of factors from deficiencies in the original construction process to proximity to a harsh coastal environment, the structural and safety risks posed by deteriorating concrete should not be ignored. RM Watson’s concrete repair solutions work to identify the root cause of spalling and carry out repairs to address the ongoing safety and structural issues affecting the asset.

Magnesite Repairs

The repair of magnesite affected slabs can impact significantly on all residents in the block, not just the unit being repaired. If not carried out properly it can also require multiple repairs over the years as untreated slab areas spall. Our repair process not only addresses the immediate area of concern but by the application of corrosion inhibitors, slows the rate of corrosion to reduce the ongoing impact of the original magnesite.

Render Repairs

Render can crack or delaminate from the substrate for a number of reasons. Accurate diagnosis of the cause of deterioration is essential in ensuring the success of the repair of the render. RM Watson has seen every type of issue affecting render and successfully addressed all offering permanent solutions to generally very unsightly and sometimes unsafe façade issues.


Our experience tells us that the main cause of water penetration in buildings is poor detailing, whether from incorrectly installed flashings, inadequate turn ups at walls, incorrect material selection or in many cases, ‘band aid’ repair attempts. Our specialist solutions involve careful diagnosis of the source of water ingress, proper selection of the type of membrane and installation by our specialist tradespeople.

Balcony Refurbishment

RM Watson’s balcony refurbishment expertise ranges from retiling to the rectification of leaks through waterproof membrane system upgrades. We work to identify the root cause of your balcony defects to ensure the repair methodology and materials proposed are robust and fit for purpose.
