1.Carefully controlled cleaning method by propelling very fine bits of material at high-velocity to clean the exterior surface of a structure.
5.A length of carbon steel typically used to increase the tensile strength of masonry and concrete structures. (2 Words)
6.A wire, cable, bar, rod, or strand, or a bundle of such elements, used to impart prestress to concrete. Usually made from high-strength steel, but can also be made from such materials as fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP.)
7.A low-cost reinforcement solution to repair a structure, add strength, redistribute weight and permanently fix cracks to restore stability. (3 Words)
10.The process of putting a mortar of the same color, or similar color, as the masonry or brick. (A term often confused with [#repointing] but with technical differences.) Once that mortar is put in place, and it hardens, the next step is to carve out a thin line and put in a contrasting mortar color. This makes the mortar appear much thinner than it actually is.
11.Breaking up, flaking, or pitting of concrete. Can be purely cosmetic in nature, but it can also result in structural damage, such as damage to [#reinforcing bars] positioned inside the concrete. Important to address when it first starts to appear.
12.A layer of material that prevents the passage of water. (2 Words)
14.An abbreviated term for [#reinforced rebar].
16.Used to allow for the heat-induced swelling and reduction that takes place in various stages of weather, reducing incidence of cracking or leakage - these more than pay for themselves in a short period of time. (2 Words)

18.This industry is one of the largest in the world because it is responsible for creating the infrastructure for cities, towns and countrires.

3.A process in which a structure is restored with an eye to its historic character, rather than just with the goal of restoring functionality. This procedure is often perfomed by a specialty contractor who has received special training. (2 Words)
4.A measure of the ability of concrete to withstand crushing loads. (2 Words)
8.A combination of adequate reinforcement (usually steel bars with raised lugs called deformations) and concrete designed to work together to resist applied loads. (2 Words)
9.A person or company that is in charge of the entirety of a construction project, including; bidding on a job, obtaining a job, providing all of the materials, labor and equipment needed to complete the job, and overseeing its accomplishment. (2 Words)
13.A very useful themosetting polymer that is often used as a long-lasting, durable adhesive and sealant.
15.The process of doing mortar repair to a brick or masonry surface where the mortar was deteriorated to the point of being bad. Bad mortar joints could allow water and other foreign materials in, which could eventually hurt the overall structural integrity of a building.
