This may seem like a simple task to complete. One would think that you would go up into the attic or check the drywall to see if any of the insulation has asbestos. But then, the question must be asked? Do you know what asbestos looks like or how to identify it? And then, if you could figure out if your Phoenix home has asbestos, what would be the best way of removing it without harming yourself or your family in the process? These are all great questions that we at Pride Development & Construction work on answering every single day. Though we do a lot of work in the industrial and commercial industries across the Southwest we also work a lot with asbestos abatement in Phoenix homes too! It has always been our motto, “We take pride in our work. No jobs too small.”
Of all the quotes and cliches about needing a strong foundation, the foundations of a strong education, fundamentals being the foundation of great sports teams. Etc. Etc. You get the point. But cliches aside, industrial facilities truly need a structurally strengthened foundation. Pride Development & Construction highly recommends that every industrial facility have a carbon fiber reinforced foundation. This structural strengthening not only improves the durability of an industrial facility’s foundation but it helps mitigate the risk of a broken foundation occurring years into the building’s lifespan. And that’s just one of many other major damages that can result in the need for costly building repairs.
Without going into the specifics or engineering science behind dam building, it’s important to recognize the simple fact that dams need repairs. But why? From engineering marvels like the Hoover dam to small county maintained dams that can often look like nothing more than a large mound of dirt, the simple answer is that dams deteriorate with age. Not Repairing Concrete constructed dams without consistent reparations will crack, leak or allow seepage, and could structurally become unstable from the negligence. Regardless, even if dams are well maintained there could still be fundamental problems with the concrete dam that requires more concrete repairs.
Though it may seem like foam injections and epoxy injections are similar, they’re actually quite different. They each have unique uses for your Phoenix industrial concrete repairs and reinforcement needs. That’s why we’re going to take a look at the two services and discuss their differences. So when you need one of these services from Pride Development & Construction, you can be confident knowing that your Phoenix industrial building is receiving the correct injection service.
Sandblasting vs Water-blasting
In the industry of industrial construction, maintenance, and repair there are quite a few techniques that can be used to shape and form the oft rigid substance known as concrete. That’s why Pride Development & Construction felt that it would be important to discuss and distinguished two very similar, yet still unique, industrial contracted services offered by PDC. Throughout the Four Corner states and the Las Vegas area, PDC has been contracted to both sandblasting and water-blasting. Each have their unique advantages, though they are seemingly very similar.
The reason sandblasting came to be was because of the inadequacies of pressure washing general sanding’s ineffective power. Hence, sandblasting. The curious thing about sandblasting is that it doesn’t necessarily require sand to be used to bring results. In truth, abrasive materials or any sort can be mixed with water or air which is then power blasted at the surface needing to be cleaned or sanded. So if your Phoenix industrial building needs this method done, PDC has mastered this process and can easily identify when sandblasting is in fact the best solution for your building’s needs. Whether the building needs to be smoothed, needs to be blasted to show more texture, or even completely reshape the targeted surface altogether. Sandblasting truly is a multifaceted service that PDC offers its Phoenix, New Mexico, and Utah clients. The industrial uses of sandblasting can reinforce a deteriorating concrete wall, transform natural and unnatural constructs that might be blocking a Phoenician earthen reconstruction project, or work somewhat like epoxy…only on the industrial floors.
Though sandblasting does offer a more “final” touches to an industrial project in a city like Phoenix. Water-blasting could very well be equated to the hammer that lowers the boom before sandblasting can rework it into a more polished industrial construct. Water-blasting is often used to a very high pressure to “blast” away substances like concrete, large rocks, bricks, and even cinderblocks. Infact, water-blasting has very little to do with washing or cleaning an industrial surface. Instead, it plays a very large part in reconstructing and renovating large industrial buildings or facilities. Water-blasting jets can weaken and ultimately wash off concrete casings around something like a steel girder, break down dilapidated brick walls, and ultimately is an integral part in the demolition process of a facility needed renovation,
Of course, both of these contractual services through Pride Development & Construction carry their own importance and functionality with your Phoenix industrial job, or any industrial job for that matter in the Southwest. So how would you know which one your job needs? The answer is PDC will know. The professional and extremely experienced staff at PDC can identify the opportunities of your building’s reconstruction and which service would work best. If not both of them in varying roles! Either way, trust the experts at Pride Development & Construction. It has always been their goal and will continue to be the consummate professional industrial contractor who strive in every job with only the highest quality of work and costs that ensure your building can stay on budget.
And even if sand and water blasting isn’t what your facility needs, Pride Development & Construction will still work to help your project. PDC provides a range of services to suit your industrial needs, PDC has the experience of serving both large and small businesses. We have the advanced training to get the results you need, no matter how big or small the job.

Carbon Fiber Reinforcement is a brilliant way to ensure longevity of any facility’s foundation and other major concrete constructs. This blog recently discussed (which can be read here) how Pride Development & Construction would like to see every new Phoenix building or industrial facility built using carbon fiber reinforcements from the foundation up. But in case you’re company’s Phoenix building has already been standing for years and the idea for a new building is decades down the road, we at PDC wanted to review three ways that carbon fiber should be used on your Phoenix building.
The housing market has been struggling across the country for several years now. Some markets bottomed out, and others simply resisted any growth. Unfortunately, Phoenix was not immune. The housing market took a big hit, and prices fell significantly.
Concrete is one of the strongest materials, making it ideal for industrial or heavy-duty commercial operations. However, even concrete can break down over time. Small cracks can appear that can lead to major problems, threatening the structural integrity of your building and putting your employees and your equipment at risk.
Tile floors are an ideal solution for your industrial space. They are easy to clean and sanitize, and they can withstand extreme temperatures, heavy loads and a great deal of foot traffic. They are more resistant to scratches and staining than other types of flooring. However, they can still become dull and dirty over time.
Most of us make our way throughout the day without giving much thought to the dangers of fire, unless we come face to face with it. At that point, it’s too late for preventative measures.
