Hi everyone,

I have a couple of spots on the garage slab were the tension cable ends are showing - photo at

Should it be repaired? I Was thinking to clean it out and put in some grout. Any suggestions on mix, type, etc?

I was unable to open the photos but reinforcing steel should have a minimum of 1" of cover. I would treat the steel with a corrosion inhibiter before covering.
Check you local concrete specialties store for the inhibitor and the grout.
