Crack Repair Service
Concrete cracks need to be maintained to prevent future problems and expansion. Water penetrates cracks, causing internal deterioration from rusting rebar and mesh, freeze/thaw of water creates crack expansion and possible trip points. Open cracks will allow water to get under the concrete creating washout and undermining. Dirt and contaminants will settle in the cracks creating staining. Frozen material will expand and crack and crumble the concrete structure along with vegetation growth and rooting problems.
Proper maintenance efforts must be applied to prevent future problems. Hairline cracks along with the whole concrete structure must be sealed. Larger cracks need to be ground out, opening the crack to allow for proper installation of crack sealant. We then apply a light coating of sand material that bonds with the sealant to help blend the cracks with the existing surface. Once properly sealed they will minimize water damage and other future problems.
If you prefer to do your own maintenance, we can not only point you in the right direction as to the right products to use but also provide you with proper application instructions.
