Concrete Crack Repair

Cracked concrete repaired near a pool

Cracked concrete is common, but it can be dangerous. This problem negatively impacts your property’s appearance, indicates underlying issues, and leads to additional damage. 

Discovering cracks in concrete slabs can be a nightmare for homeowners. The good news is, at Tar Heel Basement Systems, we offer an effective concrete lifting process that directly addresses these concerns without needing overly invasive solutions.

Homeowners across North Carolina have trusted our team with this state-of-the-art repair process for years, and we’re proud to offer you the excellence for your home. 

What is Concrete Crack Repair? 

Concrete crack repair is a specialized process that repairs concrete surface damage caused by settling soil and oversaturation. 

Caulk or other materials alone cannot effectively manage cracks in concrete. This mainly cosmetic fix only covers what’s happening beneath the surface. 

Our exclusive concrete leveling technique is a cornerstone of our comprehensive home solutions, guaranteeing the beauty and security of your concrete installations.

Signs Your Home Needs Concrete Crack Repair 

Cracks can develop on many concrete surfaces, including: 

If you notice 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 common problem signs: 

  • 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 
  • 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 repairs, safeguarding your investment and averting additional expensive harm. 

Is Concrete Crack Repair Necessary?

Yes. Addressing concrete cracks 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. 

As cracks widen, your range of feasible repair alternatives dwindles. The earlier you intervene with concrete concerns, the less intrusive the fix becomes. 

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

What Are the Benefits of Concrete Crack Repair?

Repairing concrete cracks with the right solution (like PolyRenewal™) has many benefits, including: 

Boosts Safety Measures 

Elevating and evening out sinking concrete areas 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. 

Halts Escalating Damages 

Installing expanding foam below the compromised concrete solidifies the underlying soil, counteracting further sinking and settling. This move safeguards your concrete investments and wards off future issues. 

Elevates 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. 

Extends 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 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’ team follows these key procedures when applying PolyRenewal™:

  • Drill small holes into the concrete and insert injection ports.
  • Mix and prepare the two-part, closed-cell polyurethane foam. 
  • Inject the foam beneath the concrete through the ports. 
  • As the foam expands, it fills voids underneath the concrete, elevating the slab. 
  • Let the foam cure, which takes around 15 minutes. 
  • Remove the injection ports, then fill and smooth the drilled openings.  
  • Schedule regular maintenance for your concrete slabs. 

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

    Concrete Crack Repair FAQs

    We do not use conventional fillers to address concrete cracks. Our approach involves injecting high-density polyurethane foam under concrete to lift and stabilize it. While we do not “repair” concrete cracks, we can often close them. Once the concrete is stabilized, we also apply a silicone-based sealant to the cracks and joints. Contact us to learn more and to schedule a free inspection and estimate. 

    Typically, the entire concrete lifting process can be completed within a day, depending on the severity of the damage and the scope of the job. The PolyRenewal™ injected foam cures in 15 minutes, so you can use the surface shortly after. Tar Heel Basement Systems experts will provide an accurate installation timeline during a free inspection appointment. 

    All cracks, no matter how small, can cause problems. Hairline cracks are any cracks that measure less than 1/8 inch wide. These should typically be monitored rather than repaired. Any cracks wider than 1/4 inch must be repaired as soon as possible. Tar Heel Basement Systems’ PolyRenewal™ solution can close cracks in just 15 minutes! You will be able to walk along your concrete slabs the same day we implement repairs!

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