What is Concrete Crack Repair? 

Mending concrete cracks is an all-encompassing method aimed at addressing the damage on concrete surfaces due to 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. 

At JES Foundation Repair, our approach to concrete restoration transcends mere surface repairs. We employ a specialized concrete elevation method known as PolyRenewal™ to gently elevate sagging sections. 

Our distinct concrete lifting methodology is integral to our holistic home remedies, accentuating the visual allure and fortifying the safety of your concrete edifices. PolyRenewal™ emphasizes on fortifying the concrete, frequently minimizing apparent fissures and encapsulating them once the slab becomes level. 

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 
  • Cracked walls or damaged siding above sunken concrete 
  • Crumbling edges 
  • 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? 

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: 

Boosts Safety 

Correcting imbalances and elevating depressed concrete areas reduces the risk of trips and falls. Sealing up these fissures not only safeguards individuals but also averts vehicular damages. In essence, fixing concrete enhances the safety of your premises. 

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. 

Enhances Appearance and Value 

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

Prolongs Concrete Life 

Neglected small cracks can demand extensive mending 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. 

How Our Concrete Crack Repairs Work 

To fully address concrete cracks, JES Foundation Repair’s certified team follows these essential steps when installing PolyRenewal™: 

We begin with drilling small, penny-sized holes into the concrete, where we Pplace injection ports in each hole. 

We then mix and prepare the two-part, closed-cell polyurethane foam and inject the foam beneath the concrete slabs through the ports. 

  • The expanding foam fills the voids beneath the concrete and lifts the slab. 

We then allow the foam to fully cure (approximately 15 minutes) and remove the injection ports, which we fill and smooth out drilled holes. 

After sealing cracks and joints to prevent future damage, we recommend you for your concrete slabs. 

With the right tools, training, and products, JES Foundation Repair’s concrete repair process is efficient, minimally invasive, and provides long-lasting results.
