The Owners of this family home noticed some concrete crack son their garage, so they decided to call the expert for a professional opinion about the foundation problem. After evaluating the area, our professionals came up with the solution of leveling the floor first before actually repairing the concrete cracks on the floor.
Composite interlocking can be performed to tie the broken pieces of the concrete together. The existing cracks will be cleaned and non-parallel lines will be cut across the existing cracks. Next carbon fiber laminate stitches will be inserted into the non-parallel cuts and then the gaps will be filled with a 2 part poly.
Finally, the crack should be ground smooth to minimize the differential. If done properly, this will allow the slab to function as one floating unit to help prevent the damages to flooring, ceiling and walls. If this is instead expansion joint separation, the joint should be cleaned, routed, and re-caulked with an expansive joint filler.
