Sometimes concrete companies don’t take everything into account when laying concrete and cause issues. Some of the more common types of damage to concrete caused by construction defects are rock pockets and honeycombing, form failures, dimensional errors, and finishing defects. Honeycomb and rock pockets are areas of concrete where voids are left due to failure of the cement mortar to fill the spaces around and among coarse aggregate particles. These defects, if minor, can be repaired with cement mortar. If repair is delayed longer than 24 hours after form removal, or if the rock pocket is extensive, the area must be prepared and the defective concrete must be removed and replaced.
