When dealing with concrete and masonry, repairs are just a fact of life. It's one thing to notice minor issues, but it's important to take care of some of them sooner rather than later so you don't end up with more costly repairs later. Builder's Concrete East has been Connecticut's most reliable source for concrete and more for the last 50 years, covering everything from modest residential needs to large commercial projects. You'll want to take advantage of their certified ready mix concrete products and services now before a minor crack becomes a major replacement job.
Some of the more common minor repairs include:
- Hairline Cracks: This is perhaps the best example of a relatively common occurrence that should still be taken care of as soon as possible. Hairline cracks can form in concrete for a number of reasons, from the drying process to temperature fluctuations. While hairline cracks start out as minor cosmetic issues, they can expand if they're not taken care of in a timely manner.
- Broken Or Sunken Bricks: It's not unusual to find the occasional broken brick, and replacing them isn't necessarily a demanding task. The real challenge is matching the surface materials so the repair isn't obvious. There's also the issue of sunken bricks or paving stones, which, while easy to make invisible, will involve bringing the soil back to an even level.
- Loose Stones: Masonry wall blocks can become loose for a few different reasons, including loose cement and ground movement. Whether or not professional help is necessary depends on the location and if any additional damage occurred.
