They say in Minnesota, there are 2 types of concrete. Concrete that’s cracked, and concrete that’s going to crack. That’s where we can help.
Whether the control joints between your concrete sections have cracked, or worse yet your sections themselves have cracked, or the expansion strip material they put in along your garage floor, stoop, or house walls has deteriorated, they all should be sealed up with our caulking process, to prevent further damage to the slabs, and/or water, rodent, or insect intrusion into your home.
We will prep the surface by cleaning out any broken concrete pieces, old caulking, dirt, and debris from the problem area. We then install a foam backer rod, which seals the crack or gap, and also acts as a base for the caulking. We then use a commercial grade self levelling concrete caulking over the backer rod, which creates a double seal for maximum protection. It seems simple to do, but it does take knowledge and time. So if you haven’t done it before, or even if you have you may already know, if not done properly it can make a mess, not properly seal the areas, and turn into a bigger DIY project than anticipated.
When in doubt, contact the professionals at CRI, because we caulk 1000s of feet of concrete every year, and we do it well! And as always, we will provide a free and detailed estimate for your crack and seam repair needs, to help you maximize the life of your concrete and prevent damage to your home.
