How much does Concrete Repair Cost?
Various causes can damage concrete, ranging from freezing and thawing of the ground underneath, improper pour thickness, lack of expansion joints, or other mishaps. If the underlying sub-base was installed incorrectly, it could lead to cracks forming through the concrete pad. If this happens many times, it is necessary to remove and replace the concrete. If the cracks or chips are superficial and mostly on the surface, then repairs can be performed by patching and replacing the damaged concrete.
Patching Damaged Concrete
Patching damaged concrete is a very common form of concrete repair. Typically a thin layer of concrete is screeded along the damaged area or a modified polymer resin blend may be used as well. If repairing cracks in the foundation or other structural problems, it is often much more difficult. It is for this reason that it is essential to hire a qualified and experienced concrete repair contractor.
Repairing Concrete Cracks
Some concrete will inevitably crack, no matter how well it was installed. We typically see cracks in driveways and larger pads as there is more surface are coming under stress in these types of concrete structures. The repair process for cracks is much the same as patching. Usually, the crack can be patched with concrete or a blended resin. It may be required to tear out the damaged concrete and replace it with a fresh new concrete pour in some cases. Do your due diligence and hire a qualified and experienced contractor for all of your concrete repair needs.
