What is Concrete Crack Repair?

Mending concrete cracks is an all-encompassing method for addressing damage to concrete surfaces caused by unsteady soil and excessive moisture. 

Simply sealing concrete fissures with caulk or similar substances won’t suffice. Such superficial remedies only hide the underlying issues. 

Signs Your Home Needs Concrete Crack Repair 

Cracks can develop on many concrete surfaces, including: 

If the concrete surfaces of your home appear to be wearing down, it might be an indication to think about remedial measures.

Here are some unmistakable indicators that your slab needs repair: 

  • Visible and expanding cracks in concrete surfaces 
  • Cracks wider than ¼” 
  • Uneven or sinking concrete slabs 
  • Tripping hazards 
  • Concrete sinking away from the house 
  • Pitting, flaking, and staining on the concrete 
  • Water pooling on the concrete after rain 
  • Weeds growing up between concrete sections 

Identifying concrete cracks and other damage early allows for less invasive repairs, protecting your investment and preventing further costly damage. 

Is Concrete Crack Repair Necessary? 

Repaired concrete cracks

Yes. Addressing concrete cracks is crucial. Beware of “instant remedies.” They often miss the real issue. Despite techniques like mudjacking, problems like cracks can grow into bigger challenges. 

Acting early can save money and keep your concrete in good shape for longer. The quicker you fix the issue, the easier the solution. 

PolyRenewal™ works best when used early, making it a key part of our home repair strategy. 

What Are the Benefits of Concrete Crack Repair?

Repairing cracks in concrete brings a multitude of benefits, including the following: 

1. Boosts Safety 

Correcting imbalances and elevating depressed concrete areas reduces the risk of trips and falls. Sealing up these fissures safeguards individuals and averts vehicular damages. In essence, fixing concrete enhances the safety of your premises. 

2. Stops Further Damage 

By infusing expanding foam below weakened concrete sections, the underlying terrain is fortified, preventing further settling and shifting of the concrete slab. This preserves the state of your concrete and averts the escalation of problems over time as soil continues to shift. 

3. Enhances Appearance and Value 

Unaddressed cracks and uneven concrete can tarnish your home’s aesthetic appeal and depreciate your property’s worth. With our concrete repairs, these blemished surfaces are rejuvenated. Trust in our elite products and adept crew to revive the pristine, even facade of your concrete. 

4. Prolongs Concrete Life 

Neglected small cracks can demand extensive repair later. Processes like concrete lifting and stabilization uphold the slab’s integrity, in many cases allowing us to avoid total replacements. Our offerings reinforce and prolong the life of concrete surfaces. 

To fully take advantage of these benefits, we suggest homeowners embrace our signature PolyRenewal™ method. Crafted with precision, our proprietary solutions surpass conventional market alternatives, promising enhanced efficacy and longevity.

    Concrete Crack Repair FAQs

    Cracks, regardless of their size, can compromise the integrity of your concrete. While small hairline fractures might seem harmless, those wider than 1/4″ require immediate attention. Avoid DIY fixes and opt for professional repairs from JES Foundation Repair. Our PolyRenewal™ process lifts and stabilizes concrete, often helping to seal the cracks. Contact us for a free inspection and quote.

    Instead of using conventional fillers, our repairs involve injecting durable polyurethane foam beneath the concrete to lift and level it. While we don’t “patch up” concrete cracks in the traditional sense, we often succeed in sealing them. After stabilization, we apply a silicone-based sealant to the cracks and adjoining joints.

    Typically, the entire concrete repair process is completed within a single day, depending on the extent of the damage and the scope of the project. The PolyRenewal™ foam solidifies in just 15 minutes, allowing you to use the area shortly afterward.

    *Disclaimer: “Concrete leveling” means the process by which cracked, uneven concrete is stabilized, and in many cases lifted, by means of PolyRenewal™ polyurethane foam. JES Foundation Repair does not guarantee that PolyRenewal™ can make your concrete perfectly level.
