Great photo, toni thinks i said Someone specific did the damage. I didn't care who did it , idiots like that hurt the industry. So for clarification I don't know who did that damage.

The company that did this actually reclaims. This is not a compliant property, although it is brand new.

The sad part is that it cant be fixed, And when this happens the Douche who hired these hacks blames the industry and not his choice of contrator.

Ordinarily that is correct. Not in this case. The guy that hired this professional local pressure washing company complete w reclaim system,insurance,professional equipment etc is extremely piss*d at this company and knows it is not indicitive of the industry.

Commercial concrete is usually what, about 5000 psi? Could it be a crappy soft concrete pour along with too much pressure (not couning the stop and go circles) We have a lot of residential concrete lately that exposes the aggregate just from roof runoff. We started using really low washing pressure on driveways and bringing it up to fit the job.

First off you give it time. This concrete wasn't even 6 months old. Second you would use an adjustable wand and high gpm and rinse heavily using cold water.

I seriously doubt that is 5000psi concrete.

It looks like a cheap labor pour where they cut corners.

I have not ever heard of a company pour 5000psi concrete for sidewalks. Here the driveways are 3000psi concrete pours as common practice, typically about 4" thick.

I have seen shopping centers, schools, new buildings, etc.... with weak concrete like this.
