The proper way to repair a crack in your concrete floor depends on the nature of the damage. Fractures and cracks are common and can be caused by a few issues. If there is a gap between the crack, this is a sign of uneven movement and may take a little more to repair and prevent from returning or or becoming a structural problem. You can’t just caulk it and paint over it, you need to fix the cause of the problem not just the damage. Once the foundation movement has been stopped and repaired you can now fix the damage to the concrete floor.
To help prevent the crack from returning or moving any further we apply stitches to the crack to add further strength before filling and leveling the damaged area. As you can see in the photos above, we chisel out channels about every 2 feet so that when we fill in the crack with high strength epoxy there is more surface area for the epoxy to adhere to which provides additional strength and prevents the concrete slab from moving and cracking in the future. Once the damage has repaired, the new flooring can be installed.
We solve foundations problems of all types, both interior and exterior. If you are concerned about a potential problem you should give us a call before a small problem becomes a major issue.
