CONCRETE FLOOR REPAIR
While concrete floors are extremely durable and can withstand normal to heavy wear and tear for extended periods of time, it may eventually crack and crumble over time. Since cracked concrete floors in residential, commercial or industrial buildings are quite unsightly and can increase the risk of falls, injuries and accidents, it should be repaired by a professional concrete floor repair specialist at the first of a problem. Otherwise, it may lead to serious liability concerns over time, interrupt normal routine or operations, and cost you more in the long run.
WHY DO CONCRETE FLOORS CRACK?
Here are some factors that may contribute to the problem.
Improper curing procedure:
There is a higher tendency for concrete floors to crack when concrete is poured on a hot, windy or humid day. Under such conditions, the top of the slab dries more quickly than the bottom part. In addition, putting too much water into the concrete mix reduces the strength of the concrete and increases the amount of shrinkage. This makes concrete floors more susceptible to cracking.
Poorly compacted soil:
Concrete floors are more susceptible to settlement cracks when the subgrade was not properly compacted prior to the pouring of the concrete.
Adverse chemical reaction:
The presence of aggregates that are not compatible with each other increases the risk of cracks.
Lack of control joints:
Concrete normally shrinks while drying so construction joints should be placed at regular intervals to accommodate the shrinkage and reduce the number and size of the cracks.
Excessive horizontal load can weaken the surface, hasten the normal deterioration process and cause cracks to appear.
When the steel re-bar or wire mesh in the concrete comes in contact with water, it starts to rust and expand causing the surface to crack.
The roots of weeds, grass, plants and trees exert an uneven pressure on the concrete, and eventually cause cracks to appear on the surface.
