Concrete Crack Repair

Concrete cracks are not only unsightly, but they are also hazardous. Such issues degrade your property’s visual appeal and point to potentially serious underlying issues. 

Repairing sinking and cracked concrete slabs can be unsettling for homeowners. At Foundation Systems of Michigan, we use a reliable concrete lifting technique, SettleStop™ PolyRenewal™ polyurethane injections, to lift and level cracked and sinking concrete slabs. 

For more than 15 years, homeowners across Michigan have placed their trust in this advanced repair procedure. We’re ready to restore your concrete back to its original condition. 

What is Concrete Crack Repair? 

Concrete crack repair is a specialized method tailored to address damage on concrete surfaces, often due to unstable soil and oversaturation.  

Filling cracks with caulk offers only short-term repairs that hide the real issue underneath. Foundation Systems of Michigan delves deeper than mere surface fixes. Using our advanced PolyRenewal™ technique, we lift settled sections of concrete.  

This unique system not only enhances the beauty but also ensures the safety of your concrete for years to come. PolyRenewal™ is specifically designed to stabilize concrete, diminishing the visibility of cracks and sealing them once the concrete is lifted. 

Signs Your Home Needs Concrete Crack Repair 

Cracks can develop on many 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” 
  • 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 costly damage down the road.  

Is Concrete Crack Repair Necessary? 

Yes, addressing concrete cracks promptly is crucial. 

Beware of solutions marketed as “instant remedies,” for they often gloss over the root cause. Issues like cracking, sinking, and other forms of concrete damage tend to persist because techniques like mudjacking or repouring don’t address the root problem.  

Tackling concrete issues early is key to avoiding additional damage. The earlier you confront these damages, the simpler and less intrusive the repair process becomes. 

Taking timely measures using PolyRenewal™ addresses the root cause of cracked concrete by stabilizing the soil beneath and stopping washout in its tracks.  

What Are the Benefits of Concrete Crack Repair 

Concrete crack repair comes packed with benefits: 

Boost Safety 

By leveling uneven, sunken patches and sealing up cracks, you eradicate tripping risks. Addressing these cracks means safeguarding both your family and vehicles. In essence, concrete repairs enhance property safety. 

Prevent Further Deterioration 

By injecting expanding foam beneath wobbly concrete slabs, the underlying ground is stabilized, halting further descent and settlement. Such actions secure your concrete investment and halt further complications. 

Elevate Aesthetics and Property Value 

Unsightly, cracked, and uneven concrete detracts from your property’s allure and worth. Our concrete rejuvenation techniques transform marred surfaces, making them appear as good as new. Trust in our specialized solutions and expert crew to rejuvenate your concrete’s pristine look. 

Extend Your Concrete’s Durability 

Without intervention, slight cracks can morph into major repair zones. By leveraging concrete lifting and stabilization, you uphold the slab’s integrity, circumventing complete slab replacement. Our advanced solutions bolster concrete surfaces, amplifying their longevity. 

To maximize advantages, use our PolyRenewal™ method. Distinct from typical market options, our unique products, combined with our in-depth knowledge, promise unparalleled long-term solutions. 

How Our Concrete Crack Repairs Work 

For a thorough resolution of concrete cracks, Foundation Systems of Michigan’s accredited team meticulously follows these steps for PolyRenewal™ application: 

  • Drill penny-sized openings into the concrete. 
  • Insert injection ports into each of these openings. 
  • Blend and ready the two-component, closed-cell polyurethane foam. 
  • Inject foam underneath the concrete slabs via the ports. 
  • As the foam swells, it occupies the gaps under the concrete, raising the slab. 
  • Allow approximately 15 minutes for the foam to solidify completely. 
  • Remove the injection ports, then close and refine the drilled openings. 
  • Seal up cracks and joins, safeguarding against potential damage. 
  • Plan routine upkeep for your concrete slabs. 

With the right tools, training, and products, Foundation Systems of Michigan’s concrete repair process is streamlined, minimally intrusive, and assures lasting solutions.

Rather than resorting to conventional fillers, our repairs involve injecting robust polyurethane foam underneath the concrete to lift and level it. While we don’t “patch up” concrete cracks in the traditional sense, we often succeed in sealing them. Moreover, post stabilization, we apply a silicone-centric sealant to the cracks and adjoining joints.

Generally, the comprehensive concrete repair procedure concludes within a single day, contingent on the damage’s magnitude and the project’s scope. The SettleStop™ PolyRenewal™ foam solidifies within a mere 15-minutes, allowing you to utilize the area shortly afterward.

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