What is Concrete Crack Repair? 

Concrete crack repair entails a specialized process that effectively rectifies concrete surface damage caused by factors like settling soil and oversaturation. 

Cracks in concrete can’t be managed effectively with caulk or other materials alone. This mainly cosmetic fix only covers what’s happening beneath the surface. 

Tar Heel Basement Systems’ concrete repair uses a concrete lifting process called PolyRenewal™ to efficiently raise settled sections and protect against future damage. 

 Our exclusive concrete elevation technique is a cornerstone of our comprehensive home solutions, guaranteeing the beauty and security of your concrete installations. PolyRenewal™ is dedicated to fortifying the concrete, frequently minimizing noticeable fissures and sealing them once the slab has set firm. 

Signs Your Home Needs Concrete Crack Repair 

Cracks can develop on many concrete surfaces, including: 

 If you’re noticing your home’s concrete areas showing signs of wear and tear, it might be the right time to think about a fix. Here are some indicative markers: 

  • 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 

 Spotting concrete fissures and related damage promptly can lead to more straightforward interventions, safeguarding your investment and averting additional expensive harm. 

Is Concrete Crack Repair Necessary? 

Addressing concrete fissures is crucial. Beware of solutions marketed as “quick fixes,” for they often overlook the root cause. Even with approaches like mudjacking or repouring, issues like cracking and sinking can persist, escalating into larger concerns. 

Tackling concrete issues while they’re still budding helps halt further decline, ensuring your slabs stand the test of time and keeping long-term expenses at bay. As these fractures grow and widen, your range of feasible repair alternatives dwindles. The earlier you intervene with concrete concerns, the less intrusive the mending process becomes. 

Taking prompt action enhances the efficacy of treatments like PolyRenewal™, cementing its role as an essential element in our holistic home approach. 

What Are the Benefits of Concrete Crack Repair 

Benefits of Repairing Concrete Cracks: 

Boost Safety Measures 

Elevating and evening out sagging concrete patches removes potential trip dangers. By sealing the fissures, you avert the chances of further breakages which could jeopardize individuals or vehicles. In essence, mending concrete enhances the safety of your premises. 

Halt Escalating Damages 

By infusing expanding foam below the compromised concrete, the underlying terrain is solidified, counteracting further sinking and settling. This move not only safeguards your concrete investments but also wards off future issues. 

Elevate Aesthetics and Worth 

Unsightly fractured and uneven concrete has the potential to affect curb appeal and reduce the worth of your property. Our suite of concrete solutions can rejuvenate and revitalize these damaged surfaces. With our niche products and adept crew, your concrete can regain its pristine, even finish. 

Extend the Longevity of Concrete 

Neglected small cracks can escalate into extensive restorative needs. Techniques like concrete lifting and stabilization retain the slab’s structure, negating the requirement for a full-scale replacement. Our specialized services can also strengthen concrete surfaces, prolonging their effective life. 

Our distinct solutions, crafted from our in-depth knowledge, surpass generic alternatives in the market, ensuring unmatched efficacy and endurance. 

How Our Concrete Crack Repairs Work 

For a comprehensive approach to concrete fissures, Tar Heel Basement Systems’ accredited team abides by the following key procedures when applying PolyRenewal™: 

  • Bore diminutive holes, roughly the size of a penny, into the concrete. 
  • Insert injection nozzles into these perforations. 
  • Combine and ready the dual-component, sealed-cell polyurethane foam. 
  • Channel the foam beneath the concrete panels via the nozzles. 
  • As the foam swells, it occupies the spaces underneath the concrete, elevating the slab. 
  • Let the foam set completely, which takes around 15 minutes. 
  • Detach the injection nozzles, then fill and streamline the previously drilled apertures. 
  • Seal the fissures and interconnections to ward off impending wear and tear. 
  • Schedule regular maintenance for your concrete slabs. 

With the correct tools, experience, and products, Tar Heel Basement Systems’ concrete repair process is the effective, fast, and  minimally invasive procedure that provides theand long-lasting results homeowners are looking for.
