Concrete is tough, resilient, and long lasting. If installed correctly, it can last hundreds of years. However, despite its durability, cracks develop, making crack repairs in Edmonton a necessity.
Osco Mudjacking & Shotcreting Ltd. offers home and business owners a wide selection of concrete repair options. With over six decades of experience, we solve issues related to structural damage and water leakage while protecting against further damage.
Why Do I Have Cracked Concrete?
Concrete is made of cement, gravel, sand, and water. As it cures, cement shrinks and tends to crack.
There are a number of conditions causing concrete to crack. They include:
Foundation settlement and expansive soil also contribute to cracked concrete. If the ground your property sits on cannot support the weight, you’ll start to notice cracks. Clay soil is particularly expansive. It expands when wet and shrinks when it dries, causing concrete to crack.
Don’t Ignore Cracks
Most foundations have a few cracks. The trick is recognizing which ones are the most serious.
Cracks in concrete can lead to big problems. This is especially true for cracks in areas that people use every day, such as basements, driveways, parking areas, patios, foundations, and other concrete surfaces. If a crack is not properly repaired, the situation will get worse, causing structural damage and water leakage.
Osco Mudjacking & Shotcreting Ltd. repairs cracks using epoxy. Our experienced staff installs ports near the structure. Through the ports, we fill the entire depth of the crack with mortar. Each pressure injection bonds the crack together and restores concrete soundness.
From driveways to parking areas to concrete basement floors, Osco Mudjacking & Shotcreting Ltd. has the right personnel, technology, and materials to make cracks a thing of the past. Contact us for crack repairs in Edmonton at (780) 469-1234.
