Exposed Cast-In-Place Concrete Is Honeycombed

Article Number

1.9

Condition

EXPOSED CAST-IN-PLACE CONCRETE IS HONEYCOMBED

Acceptable Performance/Condition

Cast-in-place concrete exposed to view shall have no honeycombing.

Warranty

One-Year - Work and Materials

Action

Walls with honeycombing shall be repaired.

Remarks

Honeycombing is a group of holes or voids in concrete caused by insufficient consolidation of the concrete. Random individual pinholes or small voids are not honeycombing. Some honeycombing in areas of the building which are not routinely occupied (mechanical penthouse for example) may be considered acceptable if it does not negatively impact performance (leakage resistance, structural integrity etc.).
