Concrete spalling is severe due to freezing water in winter, with great lumps coming away under freezing conditions.

  as an observation, when rebar is exposed to atmosphere as it is in these photos, it begins to rust at an accelerated rate and will actually displace the concrete, further weakening the structure... thank you discovery channel.

  Yah... but even worse is the spalling from the expanding reo -inside- the concrete when water finds its way in and tracks the fissures. This is where the most damage starts... Thank you Channel Pedant.
