Rates of future deterioration can be significantly reduced by cladding or improved rain shedding. Electro-chemical techniques can be used to reduce and control corrosion rates in some conditions. e. spalling of concrete repairs). As a result of the many concrete structures built in the 1950s, 60s and 70s, and the problems associated with these structures, certain methods have been developed for the appraisal of residual service life. For a five or ten year period, it is possible to make reasonable estimates on future performance, but these predictions will need to be checked by regular future monitoring of the structure as part of the Life-Care Plan.
