What Is Crack Repair?
Crack repair refers to the sealing of cracks caused by settling and aging of concrete surfaces. It is done using a flexible caulk, epoxy, or can be done with concrete patching in instances with larger gaps.
Why Did My Concrete Crack?
Concrete cracks due to its rigid nature. Ground settlement, loose soil, uneven drying, animal burrowing, temperature changes, voids, and more will all cause cracks. Left untreated these cracks will expand over time leading to further damage and greater costs to repair.
What are the Benefits of Crack Repair?
Cracks are present in all concrete surfaces, its unavoidable. Once the cracks begin to open up, water can begin to seep in
causing further damage to the concrete and surrounding areas as it erodes or freezes. As the cracks grow the repairs can become more costly. Sealing your
cracks early on will prevent further damage to your concrete, extend the life, and save you money in future repair.
