Every Structural element should be designed for a particular type of loading as well as for adopting of different type of environment. Recent repairing or rehabilitation is generally increasing with the increase of age of concrete structures. In this paper, causes of deterioration of concrete as well as repairing or rehabilitation by using cement grout, mortar, concrete, sprayed concrete or shot Crete, epoxy, Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) and the techniques of applying of these materials and also some resin based materials for bonding agent between interface of reinforced concrete columns and Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) are reported. Finally styrene butadiene latex based liquid was used for high performance water proofing and multipurpose repair work.
