Concrete Cracks

Concrete is one of the most durable building materials available; but because of its rigid nature, exterior concrete can develop cracks due to:

  • Drying
  • Shrinkage
  • Temperature changes
  • Ground movement
  • Excessive loads

Once a crack develops, it’s important to seal the crack from water to prevent further deterioration. Flexible sealants are the best solution for concrete cracks that are subjected to continual slab movement, since they allow the concrete to shift.

As with any repair to concrete, proper attention to crack preparation is essential to achieving a successful result. Read on to find out how to repair cracks in concrete.
