Concrete Crack Repair
Cracked concrete is a common issue that can be not only unsightly but also potentially hazardous. It not only affects your property’s appearance but also signals underlying problems that can lead to further damage.
Dealing with cracked and sunken concrete slabs can be stressful for homeowners. At Mount Valley Foundation Services, we offer an effective concrete lifting process designed to address these concerns. Our exclusive SettleStop PolyRenewal™ polyurethane injections can lift sunken concrete slabs and help close cracks after stabilizing the concrete.
Homeowners across South Carolina and Western North Carolina have trusted this state-of-the-art repair process for years, and we are excited to bring this innovation and excellence to you.
As experts in the field, our primary goal is to provide tailored solutions to enhance your property’s safety. This page explains how our specialized services can restore and improve the safety of your concrete structures.
What is Concrete Crack Repair?
Concrete crack repair is a comprehensive process designed to fix surface damage caused by unstable soil and oversaturation.
Cracks in concrete cannot be simply filled with caulk or other materials and ignored. These quick fixes only mask the problem beneath the surface.
At Mount Valley Foundation Services, our concrete repair goes beyond patching cracks. We use a concrete lifting process called PolyRenewal™ to gently raise sunken sections.
Our proprietary concrete lifting system is a crucial part of our whole-home solutions, ensuring the aesthetic appeal and safety of your concrete structures. PolyRenewal™ focuses on stabilizing the concrete, often reducing visible cracks and sealing them after the slab has solidified.
Signs Your Home Needs Concrete Crack Repair
Cracks can develop on various concrete surfaces, including:
If you’re noticing the deterioration of your home’s concrete surfaces, it may be time to consider a repair solution. Here are some telltale signs:
- Visible and expanding cracks in concrete surfaces
- Cracks wider than ¼ inch
- 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
Identifying concrete cracks and other damage early allows for less invasive repairs, protecting your investment and preventing further costly damage.
Is Concrete Crack Repair Necessary?
Repairing concrete cracks is essential.
Beware of repairs advertised as “quick fixes” because they do not address the source of the problem. Cracking, sinking, and other concrete damage can continue and lead to more significant issues, even when methods like mudjacking or repouring are used.
Addressing concrete damage in its early stages prevents further deterioration, ensuring the longevity of your slabs and saving you money in the long run. In most cases, the sooner you address concrete damage, the less invasive the repair becomes.
Acting early can also optimize the effectiveness of solutions like PolyRenewal™, making it a crucial component of our comprehensive home solution.
What Are the Benefits of Concrete Crack Repair?
Concrete crack repair offers many advantages, including:
Lifting uneven, sunken areas of concrete eliminates trip hazards. Sealing cracks prevents further fractures that could potentially cause harm or damage vehicles. Overall, concrete repair improves property safety.
Stop Further Damage
Injecting expanding foam underneath compromised concrete slabs stabilizes the ground beneath to prevent continued sinking and settlement. This protects your concrete investment and prevents worsening issues.
Enhance Appearance and Value
Cracked uneven concrete looks unsightly and diminishes your property value. Our concrete solutions can renew and refresh aged concrete and breathe life back into your structure. Our specialized products and skilled team can restore your concrete to its original, smooth appearance.
Prolong Concrete Life
Left untreated, minor cracks often become major repairs. Concrete lifting and stabilization treatments protect the integrity of the slab and prevent the need for complete slab replacement. Our products strengthen concrete surfaces and extend their lifespans.
To maximize these benefits, we encourage homeowners to utilize our proprietary PolyRenewal™ system. Our exclusive products, designed with our expertise, outperform generic solutions available in the market by providing superior performance and durability.
How Our Concrete Crack Repairs Work
To fully address concrete cracks, Mount Valley Foundation Services’ certified team follows these essential steps when installing PolyRenewal™:
- Drill small, penny-sized holes into the concrete.
- Place injection ports in each hole.
- Mix and prepare the two-part, closed-cell polyurethane foam.
- Inject foam beneath the concrete slabs through the ports.
- The expanding foam fills the voids beneath the concrete and lifts the slab.
- Allow the foam to fully cure (approximately 15 minutes).
- Remove the injection ports and fill and smooth out drilled holes.
- Seal cracks and joints to prevent future damage.
- Schedule regular maintenance for your concrete slabs.
With the right tools, training, and products, Mount Valley Foundation Services’ concrete repair process is efficient, minimally invasive, and provides long-lasting results.
