Repair Storm Inlets


This Denver area storm inlet (photo above left) suffered full depth damage caused by heat expansion from the sidewalk. The photo on the right was taken a year later.  Notice the tire track on the repair, which illustrates the durability of Fusion-Crete.

Storm inlet damage is seen often in municipal settings and is an expensive, time consuming repair that causes traffic delays and noise.  See how Fusion-Crete can be used to repair storm inlets inexpensively, quickly and without heavy equipment.
  • The storm inlet repair pictured above was completed 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 to the storm inlet 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 and demonstrates the durability of Fusion-Crete. The photo was taken one year after the repair.
  • The storm inlet repair was done in October 2011 and remained in excellent condition when inspected in March 2014.
