The research of carbonation of existing concrete structures presented in the article was executed in the process of conducting a technical survey of the building. According to the results of the study, places with varying degrees of carbonation were identified. A method for preparing the phenolphthalein solution used in the examination is described. A methodology for testing structures to determine the degree of carbonation is presented. The results of measuring the degree of carbonation of structures by the phenolphthalein method are presented. The data obtained show that the concentration of carbon dioxide has a significant effect on the corrosion process of reinforcing bars and the loss of the bearing capacity of structures during the operation of an existing building. A favorable range of pH values for concrete structures during operation is considered. The average actual depth of the neutralized concrete layer is determined. The method of restoration of building structures exposed to the carbonation reaction is described. The impact of carbonation on reinforced concrete structures during the operation of the building is assessed. The results of the restoration work are presented.
