While cracked concrete is a common issue, it can pose hazards. Such issues tarnish the aesthetics of your property and highlight deeper problems, paving the way for further deterioration. 

Managing sinking concrete can be worrisome for homeowners. At AFS Foundation & Waterproofing Specialists, we present a leading concrete lifting method that addresses these challenges at the source.  

For over 20 years, homeowners in our service area across Alabama, Tennessee , Kentucky, and parts of Florida and Georgia have trusted our cutting-edge repair method, and we’re ready to do the same for you.

What is Concrete Crack Repair? 

Concrete crack repair is a process for remedying cracked sections of concrete. These cracks usually result from poor soil conditions or excessive moisture. 

Merely sealing cracks with adhesive substances isn’t enough. Such superficial solutions conceal the actual problems lurking underneath.

Signs Your Home Requires Concrete Crack Repair 

Cracks can develop on nearly any type of concrete surface, including: 

If you see damage forming along your property’s concrete structures, it might be time to consider investing in concrete repair. Here are some clear signs: 

  • Extensive cracks—wider than ¼”—and fragmentation  
  • Uneven, tilted, or sinking slabs
  • Significant height variations between slabs  
  • Slabs that move or shift when stepped on  
  • Related damage like pitting, flaking, and staining  
  • Pooling water or persistent mud on the concrete surface 

Timely detection of concrete damage facilitates less aggressive remedies, shielding your financial outlay and averting escalated expenses. 

Is Concrete Crack Repair Necessary?

Yes. Repairing concrete cracks is important. Addressing concrete cracks early stops damage, extending the lifespan of your slabs and being cost-effective.

Avoid repairs claiming to be “instant remedies” since they generally overlook the root causes. Also, avoid traditional methods such as mudjacking, as these repair methods have been proven to eventually break down over time. 

Prompt intervention enhances the efficacy of tools like PolyRenewal™, positioning it as a pivotal element of our all-encompassing home strategy. 

What Are the Benefits of Concrete Crack Repair?

Concrete crack repair brings a host of advantages: 

Elevate Safety 

Rectifying sunken, irregular concrete areas eradicates tripping risks. Patching up cracks averts further breakage that might endanger family members or inflict harm on vehicles. Collectively, repairing concrete augments the safety of your property. 

Halt Progressive Damage 

The process of injecting expanding foam beneath affected concrete slabs solidifies the foundation to cease ongoing sinking. This conserves your concrete investment, stopping the issue from worsening. 

Maintain Aesthetics and Home Worth 

Cracked and imbalanced concrete spoils the visual appeal, leading to a decline in your property’s valuation. Our concrete remedies can rejuvenate damaged surfaces. With our premium products and proficient crew, your concrete can regain its pristine, even finish. 

Extend Concrete Durability 

Neglected slight cracks can escalate into hefty repair jobs. Techniques involving concrete lifting and fortification safeguard the slab’s wholeness, avoiding the requirement for a total slab overhaul. Our offerings amplify the resilience of concrete areas and prolong their serviceable years. 

To fully enjoy these benefits, homeowners are advised to adopt our distinctive PolyRenewal™ system. Our proprietary solutions, crafted from our vast experience, outshine standard market offerings by ensuring enhanced efficacy and longevity.

    Concrete Crack Repair FAQs

    Cracks, regardless of their size, can compromise the integrity of your concrete. While small hairline fractures might seem harmless, those wider than 1/4″ require immediate attention. Avoid DIY fixes and opt for professional repairs from AFS. Our PolyRenewal™ process lifts and stabilizes concrete, often helping to seal the cracks. Contact us for a free inspection and quote.

    Instead of using conventional fillers, our repairs involve injecting durable polyurethane foam beneath 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. After stabilization, we apply a silicone-based sealant to the cracks and adjoining joints.

    Typically, the entire concrete repair process is completed within a single day, depending on the extent of the damage and the scope of the project. The PolyRenewal™ foam solidifies in just 15 minutes, allowing you to use 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. AFS does not guarantee that PolyRenewal™ can make your concrete perfectly level.
