Concrete Crack Repair

Cracked concrete is a common occurrence that poses potential dangers. Cracks diminish the visual appeal of your property and may signal underlying foundation problems. 

Managing cracked and sinking concrete slabs can be a source of distress for homeowners. Baker’s Waterproofing provides efficient concrete lifting solutions that resolve these issues. Our exclusive SettleStop™ PolyRenewal™ polyurethane injections elevate sunken concrete slabs and seals cracks. 

For over three decades, homeowners in Pennsylvania and West Virginia have relied on this cutting-edge repair process.  

Our primary goal is to offer guidance and solutions tailored to your home. Learn how our specialized services can restore and enhance your property’s safety. 

What is Concrete Crack Repair? 

Concrete crack repair is a comprehensive procedure that addresses surface damage caused by unstable foundation soil and excess moisture. 

Filling cracks with caulk and other DIY projects are a temporary fix, and do not address the root cause of the problem. 

Baker’s Waterproofing offers permanent solutions, not temporary fixes. We use PolyRenewal™, a concrete lifting technique that gently raises settled slabs. 

Our exclusive concrete lifting system is an integral component of our whole-home solutions, ensuring restored visual appeal and structural integrity. PolyRenewal™ prioritizes concrete stabilization, reducing and sealing visible cracks. 

Signs Your Home Needs Concrete Crack Repair 

Cracks develop on various concrete surfaces, including: 

When you observe the signs of deterioration on your home’s concrete surfaces, it may be time to consider a repair solution. Here are a few things to look for: 

  • Visible and expanding cracks on concrete surfaces 
  • Cracks exceeding one-quarter inch in width 
  • Irregular or subsiding concrete slabs 
  • Potential tripping hazards 
  • Concrete settling away from the property 
  • Damaged walls or siding above depressed concrete 
  • Deteriorating edges 
  • Concrete pitting, flaking, and staining  
  • Water accumulation on the concrete post-rainfall 
  • Presence of weeds sprouting between concrete segments 

Identifying concrete cracks and other damage in their early stages enables less intrusive repairs, safeguarding your investment and preventing potential costly damages. 

Is Concrete Crack Repair Necessary? 

Repairing concrete cracks is vital. 

Beware of quick-fix repairs, as they often fail to address the underlying cause of the problem. Methods such as mudjacking and repouring may provide temporary relief, but they are not long-term solutions for cracking, sinking, and other concrete damage. 

It is crucial to address concrete damage early to prevent further deterioration, ensure the longevity of your slabs, and save money. As cracks worsen, viable repair options become limited. Acting promptly minimizes the invasiveness and cost of the repair process and maximizes the effectiveness of solutions like PolyRenewal™. It’s a vital aspect of our comprehensive home improvement approach. 

What Are the Benefits of Concrete Crack Repair? 

Concrete crack repair offers many advantages, such as: 

Improved Safety 

Elevating uneven or sunken sections of concrete halts potential trip hazards. Sealing cracks safeguards against additional fractures that may pose risks to family members or vehicles. Concrete repair enhances overall property safety and value. 

Damage Protection 

By injecting expanding foam beneath cracked concrete slabs, we stabilize the ground underneath, preventing further sinking and settlement. This safeguards your concrete investment and mitigates the potential for worsening issues. 

Enhanced Curb Appeal and Property Value 

Unsightly, cracked concrete detracts from a property’s aesthetic appeal and reduces its value. Our concrete rejuvenation solutions restore damaged surfaces to their original, flawless state. 

Concrete Durability 

When left unaddressed, minor cracks can escalate into substantial damage. Concrete lifting and stabilization treatments preserve the slab’s integrity, preventing the necessity for full-scale replacement. Our products fortify concrete surfaces, prolonging their lifespan. 

For optimal results, we recommend homeowners choose our proprietary PolyRenewal™ system. Engineered exclusively by our team of experts, our products outperform generic alternatives, offering superior performance and durability. 

How Our Concrete Crack Repairs Work 

The Baker’s Waterproofing certified team follows these essential steps when installing PolyRenewal™: 

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

Baker’s Waterproofing ensures an efficient, minimally invasive concrete repair process that yields long-lasting results.

FAQs

While hairline cracks typically don’t pose a significant threat to your concrete, those measuring over ¼” wide require immediate attention. Opting for professional solutions from Baker’s Waterproofing is advised over attempting DIY repair. Our PolyRenewal™ system effectively lifts and stabilizes concrete, aiding in crack closure.  

Our method differs from conventional crack fillers. We employ high-density polyurethane foam injection beneath the concrete for lifting and stabilization. While we don’t strictly “repair” concrete cracks, we can facilitate their closure. After the concrete is stabilized, we apply a silicone-based sealant to the cracks and joints.

Typically, the concrete lifting process is completed within a day, depending on the severity of the damage and the scope of the project. Since PolyRenewal™ foam solidifies in a rapid 15 minutes, it’s the ideal choice for quick and efficient repair.
