Cracked Concrete

Cracked Concrete Repair experts in Edmonton & Northern Alberta

Cracked concrete happens when part of a concrete slab breaks and sinks into underlying soil that has compressed or washed away. These cracks aren’t just unsightly; they offer moisture a way to seep beneath the slab, which can cause the underlying soil to soften or even wash away completely. That can cause the slab to crack further as it sinks into the void left by the washed-away soil.

Cracks must be sealed to prevent moisture from seeping into the soil beneath. We also need to seal the control joints cut between the slabs when they were first poured. While you could seal them with urethane caulk found at your local big-box DIY store, that solution is prone to cracking, bubbling and drying out over time, so you’ll likely be sealing them again… and sooner than you thought.

    The PolyRenewal™ Solution

    Thankfully, fixing cracks in concrete has never been easier, thanks to a breakthrough in technology only available from PolyLEVEL Alberta Corp. and Groundworks companies.

    PolyRenewal™ is a silicone-based sealant for joints and cracks specially formulated to provide long-lasting flexibility and to stand up to harsh weather conditions. Unlike traditional polyurethane sealants, PolyRenewal™ resists UV rays so that it won’t crack, bubble or dry out. That means a single application can seal the joints and cracks in your concrete driveway, patio, pool deck or sidewalk for years to come, protecting it from damage caused by soil compaction and washout.

    PolyRenewal Advantages

    Quick to Install, Quick to Cure

    The PolyRenewal™ solution is installed by a highly trained crew specializing in concrete repair and protection. First, the cracks are drilled, smoothed and prepared with non-absorbent backer rod filler. Then, the PolyRenewal™ foam is inserted in the prepared crack or control joint. Finally, the cracks are detailed with a thin layer of native sand, giving the concrete a uniform, finished appearance. And, of course, sealed concrete cracks mean no unsightly weeds growing through.

    What causes sunken or cracked concrete?

    Concrete is pretty amazing stuff. It can be poured, shaped and made into almost anything you like. But even though it’s solid, it’s not indestructible. So, when you see cracked concrete or a driveway or patio that has sunken or broken slabs or is pitted, flaked and stained, there are reasons why these things happen.

    The good news is that concrete damage can be repaired with suitable materials, equipment, and help from experienced professionals at PolyLEVEL Alberta. Call us today or click below for a free concrete repair quote in Edmonton, Red Deer, Fort McMurray and the nearby areas.

    What Lies Beneath

    Pitting, Flaking and Staining

    Moisture is concrete’s strongest enemy. It seeps into the pores of untreated concrete, and when temperatures drop, especially during freeze-thaw cycles, that trapped moisture expands as it turns to ice. This expansion destroys the pores and weakens the concrete. This results in concrete slabs that can pit and flake. Concrete’s porous nature also makes it susceptible to staining when left untreated.

    Street Creep

    As a homeowner, you don’t just have to worry about your concrete slabs; you should also be concerned about the slabs on the street that go past your house.

    During colder months, your street’s slabs contract, opening the joints between them. Those joints then become filled with pebbles and other debris. Then, when warm weather returns, the slabs expand again—only the joints designed to absorb this expansion are now filled with material that won’t compress, which leaves the expansion pressure nowhere to go except up your driveway. This “street creep,” as it is known, exerts incredible pressure on your home and can cause many problems.

    FAQs

    PolyRenewal™ is cost-effective because it offers a long-lasting solution, unlike the urethane-based products available at big-box DIY stores that must be replaced regularly.

    Yes. Because it is silicone-based, not urethane-based, PolyRenewal™ won’t degrade over time, even when exposed to UV radiation and extreme temperatures, ensuring it remains flexible and waterproof for years.

    No. PolyRenewal™ is a proprietary product developed by Groundworks and is available exclusively from PolyLEVEL Alberta Corp. and other concrete repair contractors in the Groundworks network.
