What is Concrete Crack Repair? 

Concrete crack repair is an intricate process aiming to fix surface damages on concrete, resulting from unstable soil conditions and water oversaturation. 

Merely filling cracks in concrete with caulk or similar materials provides only a temporary aesthetic solution, hiding the real issues beneath. 

At Basement Authority of West Virginia, our approach to concrete repair is more comprehensive. We utilize the PolyRenewal™ system, a concrete lifting method that effectively raises settled sections, closing cracks. 

As a crucial part of our complete home solutions, PolyRenewal™ plays a significant role in securing the safety and visual appeal of your concrete structures. The system focuses on stabilizing concrete, which helps in reducing visible cracks and sealing them once stabilization is achieved. 

Signs Your Home Needs Concrete Crack Repair 

Concrete cracks can appear on various surfaces such as: 

Noticeable signs that your concrete surfaces might need repairs include: 

  • Visible and expanding concrete cracks 
  • Cracks wider than ¼” 
  • Sinking or uneven concrete slabs 
  • Tripping hazards 
  • Concrete pulling away from your house 
  • Cracks in walls or damage to siding above sunken concrete 
  • Edges of the concrete crumbling 
  • Pitting, flaking, and staining of the concrete surface 
  • Water collecting on concrete surfaces after it rains 
  • Weeds sprouting up between concrete sections 

Addressing these issues early can lead to simpler, less costly repairs, safeguarding your investment and preventing further, more expensive damage. 

Is Concrete Crack Repair Necessary? 

Yes. Fixing concrete cracks is crucial. 

Avoid falling for “quick fixes” that don’t tackle the problem at its roots. Even after methods like mudjacking or complete repouring, the issues of cracking, sinking, and other damage to your concrete can persist and escalate. 

Tackling concrete damage promptly prevents further deterioration, ensuring your slabs last longer and saving you money over time. Addressing damage early can also enhance the efficiency of solutions like PolyRenewal™, an integral part of our comprehensive home care strategy. 

What Are the Benefits of Concrete Crack Repair 

Concrete crack repair offers numerous advantages: 

Improve Safety 

Fixing uneven, sunken areas of concrete minimizes trip hazards, and sealing cracks prevents further damage, safeguarding both the people and vehicles on your property. 

Stop Further Damage 

Injecting expanding foam beneath compromised slabs stabilizes the ground beneath, preventing further sinking and settling, thereby protecting your concrete investment. 

Enhance Appearance and Value 

Repairing cracked and uneven concrete surfaces not only improves the aesthetic appeal of your property but also increases its market value. Our concrete solutions can rejuvenate cracked surfaces, making them look brand new. 

Prolong Concrete Life 

Neglecting minor cracks can lead to major, more expensive repairs. Our treatments protect the slab’s integrity, preventing the need for complete replacement, thus extending the life of your concrete surfaces. 

We encourage homeowners to use our exclusive PolyRenewal™ system to experience these benefits. Our products, backed by our expertise, provide superior performance and durability compared to generic alternatives. 

How Our Concrete Crack Repairs Work 

To thoroughly address concrete cracks, Basement Authority of West Virginia’s certified team follows these crucial steps when applying PolyRenewal™: 

  • Drill small, penny-sized holes into the concrete. 
  • Insert injection ports into each hole. 
  • Mix and ready the two-component, closed-cell polyurethane foam. 
  • Inject the foam beneath the concrete slabs through the ports. 
  • The expanding foam fills the voids underneath the concrete, lifting the slab. 
  • Allow the foam to cure completely (about 15 minutes).

FAQs

The treated area is ready to bear loads like vehicle traffic approximately 15 minutes after the PolyRenewal™ foam is applied. 

PolyRenewal™ sets and hardens within 15 minutes, offering immediate stability to the lifted slabs. However, for total curing and attaining its full strength, it might take around 30 minutes to an hour. 

Cracks of any size could pose a threat to your concrete’s integrity. While hairline cracks might seem negligible, they can quickly expand under the pressure of weather conditions and soil shifts. For larger cracks, more than ¼” in width, immediate attention is needed. Early intervention can save costs and ensure long-lasting repairs.
