Why Concrete Cracks
Concrete can crack from shrinkage due to poor concrete mixing, or issues with soil beneath your slabs. The main culprit is moisture – whether it’s a lack of or too much of it. When your concrete was first poured, there could have been excess water content in it that caused slight cracking as it cured.
The other moisture issue comes from inevitable weather elements. Things like frost heave or overly dry soil causes changes to the dirt under your concrete. It causes pockets, or voids, that the slabs will sink into unevenly over time.
How We Fix It
To fix your cracked concrete, we first need to assess the situation. If there is an underlying cause, we need to address and correct that first. For example, uneven concrete generally needs to be lifted before we can seal the cracks that came from the settling issue.
For crack and joint sealing, we apply a silicone-based formula. Here’s why our experts recommend this method:
- Unaffected by extreme temperatures
- Longer lasting than traditional methods
- UV resistant so it won’t discolor
- Cures in just one hour
