What is Concrete Crack Repair? 

Concrete crack repair is a procedure aimed at addressing damage on concrete surfaces, which is usually due to unstable soil conditions and excessive moisture. 

Simply filling in cracks with caulk or similar materials is an inadequate solution, as it only conceals the issues occurring beneath the surface. 

At Alpha Foundations, our approach to concrete repair transcends superficial fixes. We utilize the PolyRenewal™ system to gently elevate settled sections of concrete. 

This proprietary concrete lifting system plays a crucial role in our comprehensive home solutions, ensuring the aesthetic and safety of your concrete structures are maintained. PolyRenewal™ aims to stabilize concrete, often reducing visible cracks and sealing them once the slab has been reinforced. 

Signs Your Home Needs Concrete Crack Repair 

Concrete cracks can appear on various surfaces, such as: 

  • Driveways 
  • Sidewalks 
  • Porches 
  • Patios 
  • Steps 
  • Pool decks 
  • Interior slab floors 

When you notice the damage of your home’s concrete surfaces, it may be time to contemplate a repair solution. Here are some indicators: 

  • 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 these signs of concrete damage early enables less extensive repairs, safeguarding your investment and averting further costly damages. 

Is Concrete Crack Repair Necessary? 

Yes. Addressing cracks in concrete is imperative. 

Be cautious of solutions marketed as “quick fixes,” as they often fail to tackle the root cause of the issue. Cracking, sinking, and additional types of concrete damage will persist and escalate, leading to more serious problems, even when strategies like mudjacking or repouring are employed. 

Tackling concrete issues promptly prevents further degradation, safeguarding the longevity of your slabs and resulting in financial savings over time. As cracks worsen and spread, they can limit the repair options available, emphasizing the importance of early intervention. The earlier you address concrete damage, the less complex the repair process will be. 

Prompt action also enhances the efficacy of solutions like PolyRenewal™, making it a vital element of our comprehensive home solution. 

What Are the Benefits of Concrete Crack Repair 

Concrete crack repair offers numerous advantages: 

Improve Safety 

By lifting uneven, sunken areas of concrete, trip hazards are eliminated. Sealing cracks prevents additional cracks that could potentially harm your loved ones or cause damage to vehicles. In essence, repairing concrete contributes to the overall safety of your property. 

Stop Further Damage 

The injection of expanding foam underneath compromised concrete slabs stabilizes the ground beneath, preventing ongoing sinking and settlement. This measure safeguards your investment in concrete and stops the progression of further issues. 

Enhance Appearance and Value 

Cracked and uneven concrete is unsightly and can decrease your property’s value. Our concrete solutions can rejuvenate cracked surfaces, making them appear as good as new. Our specialized products and skilled team are capable of restoring your concrete to its original, smooth state. 

Prolong Concrete Life 

Without treatment, minor cracks can escalate to major repair needs. Concrete lifting and stabilization treatments protect the slab’s integrity, avoiding the need for a complete slab replacement. Our products fortify concrete surfaces and extend their lifespans. 

To fully reap these benefits, we recommend utilizing our exclusive PolyRenewal™ system. Our unique products, developed from our expertise, outshine generic solutions in the market, delivering unparalleled performance and durability. 

How Our Concrete Crack Repairs Work 

To effectively address concrete cracks, Alpha Foundations’ certified technicians follow these crucial steps when implementing PolyRenewal™: 

  • Drill small, penny-sized holes into the concrete. 
  • Install injection ports in each hole. 
  • Mix and prepare the two-part, closed-cell polyurethane foam. 
  • Inject the foam beneath the concrete slabs through the ports. 
  • The expanding foam fills the voids beneath the concrete, lifting the slab. 
  • Allow the foam to fully cure (approximately 15 minutes). 
  • Remove the injection ports and patch and smooth out drilled holes. 
  • Seal cracks and joints to prevent future damage. 
  • Schedule regular maintenance for your concrete slabs. 

With the appropriate tools, training, and products, Alpha Foundations’ concrete repair process is streamlined, minimally disruptive, and ensures lasting results.
