This page outlines how our specialized services enhance your property’s safety. 

What is Concrete Crack Repair? 

Concrete crack repair is an inclusive process that addresses surface damage caused by unstable soil and oversaturation. It’s important to note that simply filling concrete cracks with caulk or similar materials is not a sustainable solution, as it only masks the underlying issues. 

Ohio Basement Systems takes concrete repair to the next level with our PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting process. Instead of just patching cracks, we gently raise sunken sections, ensuring visual improvement and long-lasting stability. 

Our proprietary concrete lifting system is integral to our whole-home solutions, emphasizing aesthetics and safety. PolyRenewal™ focuses on stabilizing concrete, often reducing visible cracks and sealing them after the slab solidifies. 

Signs Your Home Needs Concrete Crack Repair 

Concrete cracks can develop on various surfaces around your home, including: 

If you’ve noticed any of the following signs, it’s time to consider a repair solution: 

  • Visible and growing cracks in concrete surfaces 
  • Cracks wider than ¼” 
  • Uneven or sinking concrete slabs 
  • Tripping hazards 
  • Concrete sinking away from the house 
  • Cracked walls or damaged siding above sunken concrete 
  • Crumbling edges 
  • Concrete pitting, flaking, and staining 
  • Water pooling on the concrete after rain 
  • Weeds growing in between concrete sections 

Early identification of concrete cracks and related damage allows for less invasive repairs, protecting your investment and preventing further costly damage. 

Is Concrete Crack Repair Necessary? 

Concrete crack repair is not an option; it’s a necessity.  

Beware of quick fixes and traditional solutions like mudjacking, which don’t address the root cause of the problem. Identifying and promptly repairing concrete damage prevents further damage, prolonging the lifespan of your slabs and ultimately saving you money. 

Acting early also optimizes the effectiveness of solutions like PolyRenewal™, because it is a crucial component of our comprehensive home solution. 

The Benefits of Concrete Crack Repair 

Concrete crack repair offers several advantages, including: 

Improved Safety 

Lifting uneven, sunken areas of concrete rids your property of trip hazards. Sealing cracks prevents further fractures that could harm loved ones or damage vehicles. Overall, concrete repair improves your home’s safety. 

Avoid Further Damage 

Polyurethane foam injected under compromised concrete slabs stabilizes the ground beneath to prevent continued sinking and settlement. This protects your concrete investment and prevents further deterioration. 

Enhanced Appearance and Value 

Cracked and uneven concrete looks unsightly and diminishes property value. Our specialized products and skilled team make cracked surfaces look brand new again, restoring your concrete to its original, smooth appearance. 

Extend Concrete’s Lifespan 

Minor cracks become major repairs if left untreated. Concrete lifting and stabilization treatments protect the integrity of the slab and prevent the need for complete slab replacement. Our products strengthen concrete surfaces and ensure their longevity. 

We encourage homeowners to utilize our proprietary PolyRenewal™ system to maximize these benefits. Our exclusive products outperform generic solutions by providing superior performance and durability. 

How Our Concrete Crack Repairs Work 

To fully address concrete cracks, Ohio Basement Systems follows precise steps when installing the PolyRenewal™ system: 

  • Drill small, penny-sized holes into the affected concrete. 
  • Place injection ports into the holes. 
  • Mix the two-part, closed-cell polyurethane foam. 
  • Inject the foam under the concrete slabs. 
  • Allow the foam to expand, fill voids, and properly cure (approximately 15 minutes). 
  • Ensure proper slab lifting and soil stabilization. 
  • Remove the injection ports and fill the drilled holes. 
  • Apply sealant to cracks and joints to prevent future damage. 
  • Schedule annual maintenance for your concrete slabs’ protection. 

As industry leaders, Ohio Basement Systems’ concrete repair process is efficient, minimally invasive, and provides long-lasting results.

FAQs

Replacing concrete by demolishing it and repouring cement does not tackle the root of the problem. However, it’s often the only viable solution if the concrete has sustained significant damage. Repairing cracking and sinking concrete with PolyRenewal™ addresses underlying sources and provides lasting protection. Contact Ohio Basement Systems to learn more and to schedule a free inspection.

We do not use conventional fillers to address concrete cracks. Our approach involves injecting polyurethane foam under concrete to lift and stabilize it.  While we may not perform traditional “repair” on concrete cracks, we are often able to close them and apply a silicone-based sealant to both cracks and joints once the concrete is stabilized. Contact us to learn more and to schedule a free inspection and estimate.

The concrete lifting process can typically be completed within one day, depending on the severity of the damage and the scope of the job. The PolyRenewal™ foam cures in 15 minutes, so you can use the surface shortly after. Ohio Basement Systems experts provide an accurate installation timeline during a free inspection appointment.
