Concete Crack Repair - Tube/Bottle
Concrete crack repair materials are not all cement based materials. Because of this, concrete cracks should be evaluated before repairing. When evaluating a concrete crack consider the questions below when determining a repair product:
- Is this a vertical or horizontal repair?
- Will the area need to be widened to properly repair?
- How wide, deep and long is the crack?
- Is this a moving crack? Does it appear to get larger over time?
- Does the area get a lot of vehicle traffic?
- Is the repair area minor or structural?
The evaluation and diagnosis of concrete cracks may lead to many different options of repair materials. For minor concrete cracking, many available crack repair materials could be selected to make a successful repair and the deciding factor may simply come down to an ease-of-use preference.
