Repair Storm Inlets

This Denver area storm inlet suffered full depth damage caused by heat expansion from the sidewalk.

The repair was done by one worker in less than 90 minutes without forms using Fusion-Crete modified dry pack mortar costing only $18.64.

The original cause of the damage was eliminated by increasing the expansion joint width in the substrate with a demo saw and in the repair area when finishing the mortar.

The photo with the inset shows tire tracks riding up the face and onto the top of the inlet. The photo was taken one year after the repair.

The repair was done in October 2011 and remains in excellent condition March 2014.
