Concrete Crack Repair 

Cracked concrete driveway

Tripping on concrete usually ends badly, especially for more vulnerable members of your family. This is more likely to happen when the concrete is cracked and uneven.

Thankfully, you can fix it—and Innovative Basement Authority can help. Since 2005, we’ve been helping homeowners in the Midwest repair their concrete. Read on to learn more.

What is Concrete Crack Repair?

Concrete crack repair is exactly what it sounds like: repairing cracks in concrete (specifically, with concrete lifting). With professional help, concrete surfaces become smoother and safer.

Think of all the concrete on your property. You might have a driveway or a concrete porch. Repairing these surfaces ensures that no one has a nasty accident and that your home looks better in general.

Our concrete crack repair method uses a modern material called polyurethane foam. As we inject it under the concrete, the foam expands, filling gaps and lifting the structure. In just 15 minutes, polyurethane cures to its final strength and supports the newly lifted concrete.

Signs You Need Concrete Crack Repair 

Concrete cracks can appear on nearly any concrete surface. They’re easy to spot, so keep an eye out for the following:

Repairing concrete cracks not only enhances the appearance of your property but also increases its overall safety. Consider what might happen on a cracked concrete surface. Kids running on a driveway or your family trying to enjoy a day around the pool could end with accidents.

FAQs

It’s advisable to consult with a professional as soon as you notice significant cracks. Addressing issues early can prevent them from worsening, saving time, and potentially reducing repair costs in the long run.

With professional repair and proper maintenance, a repaired concrete surface can last for many years. The durability also depends on environmental factors, usage, and the quality of the repair materials and techniques. 

PolyRenewal™ involves injecting a specialized polyurethane foam beneath the concrete slab. This foam expands, lifting the slab and filling voids, which can address both the cause and appearance of cracks. 

Disclaimer: “Concrete leveling” means the process by which cracked, uneven concrete is stabilized, and in many cases lifted, by means of PolyRenewal™ polyurethane foam. Innovative Basement Authority does not guarantee that PolyRenewal™ can make your concrete perfectly level.
