Cracked concrete is common, but it can be dangerous. This problem negatively impacts your property’s appearance and leads to additional damage. 

Cracking and sinking concrete slabs can be distressing for homeowners. At Ohio Basement Authority, we offer an effective concrete lifting process that directly addresses these concerns.

Homeowners in Ohio and Northern Kentucky have trusted this state-of-the-art repair process for many years, and we’re eager for you to experience the innovation and excellence for yourself. 

What is Concrete Crack Repair? 

Concrete crack repair is a comprehensive process designed to rectify concrete surface damage caused by unstable soil and oversaturation.  

Cracks in concrete cannot simply be filled with caulk or other materials and left alone. This cosmetic quick fix masks what’s going on beneath the surface. 

Ohio Basement Authority’s concrete repair goes beyond just patching cracks. Our proprietary concrete lifting system is a pivotal part of our whole-home solutions, ensuring the aesthetic appeal and safety of your concrete structures.

Signs Your Home Needs Concrete Crack Repair 

Cracks can develop on many concrete surfaces, including:

If you see deterioration on your home’s concrete surfaces, it may be time to consider a repair solution. Here are some telltale signs: 

  • Visible and expanding 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 
  • Pitting, flaking, and staining on the concrete 
  • Weeds growing up between concrete sections 

Identifying concrete cracks and other damage early allows for less invasive repairs, protecting your investment and preventing further costly damage. 

Is Concrete Crack Repair Necessary?

Yes. Repairing concrete cracks is essential. As cracks progress and expand, this can limit viable repair options once they are too far gone. The sooner you address concrete damage, the less invasive the repair. 

Be wary of repairs advertised as “quick fixes,” as they do not address the source of the problem. Cracking, sinking, and other concrete damage continue and lead to more significant issues, even when methods like mudjacking or repouring are used. 

Acting early can also optimize the effectiveness of solutions like PolyRenewal™, making it a crucial component of our comprehensive home solution. 

What Are the Benefits of Concrete Crack Repair?

Concrete crack repair offers many advantages, including: 

Improved Safety 

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

Stops Further Damage 

Injecting expanding foam underneath compromised concrete slabs stabilizes the ground below to prevent continued sinking and settlement. This protects your concrete investment and prevents worsening issues. 

Enhanced Appearance and Value 

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

Prolonged Concrete Life 

Left untreated, minor cracks become major repairs. 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 extend their lifespans. 

To maximize these benefits, we encourage homeowners to utilize our proprietary PolyRenewal™ system. Our exclusive products, designed with our expertise, outperform generic solutions available in the market by providing superior performance and durability. 

How Our Concrete Crack Repairs Work 

To fully address concrete cracks, Ohio Basement Authority’s certified team follows these essential steps when installing PolyRenewal™: 

Concrete lifting being installed
  • Drill small, penny-sized holes into the concrete and place injection ports in each hole. 
  • Mix and prepare the two-part, closed-cell polyurethane foam. 
  • Inject foam beneath the concrete slabs through the ports. 
  • The expanding foam fills the voids beneath the concrete and lifts the slab. 
  • Allow the foam to fully cure (approximately 15 minutes). 
  • Remove the injection ports, fill and smooth drilled holes, and seal cracks and joints.

With the right tools, training, and products, Ohio Basement Authority’s concrete repair process is efficient, minimally invasive, and provides long-lasting results.

    Concrete Crack Repair FAQs

    All cracks can present a threat to your concrete. Hairline cracks generally do not pose much of a threat, but cracks that measure more than ¼” wide must be repaired as soon as possible. Avoid DIY repairs and invest in professional solutions from Ohio Basement Authority. Our PolyRenewal™ system lifts and stabilizes concrete and can help close cracks. Contact us for a free inspection and estimate.

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

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

    Disclaimer: By “concrete leveling,” we mean the process by which cracked, uneven concrete is stabilized, and in most cases lifted, by means of our PolyRenewal™ polyurethane foam. Ohio Basement Authority does not guarantee that PolyRenewal™ can make your concrete perfectly level.
