Professional Commercial Crack & Joint Repair

The Colosseum in Rome and Hadrian's Wall near the border between modern-day Scotland and England are two examples of concrete structures that have stood proudly for centuries. And while we don't all get to build concrete legacies, here in the US of A you can add your office building to the list.

All you need to add is a bit of pride and the correct oversight of your crack and joint repair. Think of the concrete that exists in your commercial work environment as an evolving entity. After all, it does continue to harden as time passes.

Concrete is not impervious to weather, and factors such as extreme temperatures can cause your concrete floors or walls to crack. Not to mention heavy loads such as a company vehicle carrying bulky stock causing a concrete slab to crack, soon becoming unstable and unsafe as an area of passage.

Before concrete areas such as driveways or loading bays become bigger with cracks appearing, call in the experts.

Why Does Concrete Crack?

A crack appears in concrete when part of a concrete slab breaks off, sinking into a vacuum (such as soil that has not been properly compacted) below. Moisture then seeps through these cracks and into the underlying ground.

The excess moisture causes the soil underneath to erode further, even washing away completely. The lack of support from the soil causes the concrete slab to crack further and sink into the gap left by the ground that's washed away. Depending on the severity, you might be left with a gaping hole where your slab of concrete used to be!

Our Commercial Concrete Repair Process:

Our Repair Process Includes

Professionally Sealed

The cracks and original joints must be professionally sealed to prevent moisture from seeping through the cracks and into the soil beneath. While it may be tempting to quickly seal these up with caulk found at your local hardware store, this is likely to be somewhat of a quick fix. So it's a safer bet calling in the experts to address the initial damage appropriately right away by applying the correct sealant.

The Area Is Prepped

Our repair process starts with pressure washing your concrete surface to lift and remove any debris and surface stains before applying a sealant.

Long-wearing Caulk Is Applied

The cracks in the concrete are caulked with a professional caulk to prevent water from penetrating within and beneath the concrete. Drying and bubbling are new problems that you might soon have on your hands when using over-the-counter caulks. If you're not an expert on concrete, you'll simply be wasting your time and soon be needing to seal those cracks again.

Joints are sealed

The original concrete slabs joints are also sealed to maintain the integrity and added durability.

Apply UV-resistant staining product

Finally, applying a UV-resistant sealant on top of the compromised area and the rest of the concrete surface will help to protect the concrete and maintain it for many years.
