During this pre purchase building and pest inspection in Boronia we discovered this spalling to the concrete panel wall, the spalled section was inside a bedroom cupboard and is an external facing wall. The concrete waterproofing has failed allowing it to absorb moisture, this causes the steel reinforcement to corrode and expand thus the concrete cracks and falls apart.
This building defect requires specialist repairs, to prevent further deterioration if, not professionally repaired this will lead to a major structural defect.
