Concrete Floor and Crack Repair

It is important to address the problems in the concrete surface prior to installing a new floor system. Spalled or deteriorated areas can be treated with modified cement repair mortars and epoxy self leveling repair products. Low areas can be built up or even ramped or sloped to meet an existing area. Crack repair is treated depending on the condition of the crack. Hairline cracks can be filled and bridged over. Wider cracks generally will need to be ground or chased with a v blade and then filled with a material that benefits the cracks characteristic. Some cracks may be part of a problem with foundation movement or settling. These cracks may require a repair system that can include a fiberglass system to strengthen or bridge over the area.
