Even concrete—one of the toughest building materials available—doesn’t last forever. Time, weather, and heavy use can cause concrete surfaces to crumble and crack, but with the right company, concrete repair can save your driveway, roadway, retaining wall, or well. With locations in Bryan Station, Auburndale, and Tylersville, OH, The Dwyer Company specializes in polyurethane and epoxy injection, which seals and repairs concrete cracks for lasting foundation repair. Most concrete companies will say your only solution is to re-pour, but this specialized restoration technique offers a better alternative.
Check Out Those Concrete Cracks
One of the main reasons concrete fails prematurely is due to poor installation. Too much water in the mix will make the installation easier, but it takes away from the material’s strength. The excess water will cause the concrete to shrink as it dries, and the surface will be pulled apart as it spreads to try and fill the available space. Lack of joint controls, using the wrong kind of concrete, and drying the concrete too fast will also lead to cracks. What starts out as a barely noticeable line in the concrete will eventually spread and widen. The deeper and wider the crack is, the harder it is to repair.
Polyurethane & Epoxy Injection Crack Repair
Polyurethane and epoxy are types of resin made from varying components that, when combined, formulate a material best used for concrete repair. Both types of resin have varying thicknesses to match the specific surface that needs repair. They work to counteract crack tension and pressure, as well as a caulk-like substance to fill in cracks and repair damage.
Injection allows the substance to reach deep into the crack to fix the underlying problem and not only what can be seen from the surface. It’s an effective concrete repair technique used for large cracks that would otherwise ruin basement waterproofing, damage roadways, and contribute to early driveway replacement.
Polyurethane and epoxy injection is a fast process, which usually takes no more than an hour to cure. By not having to pour more concrete, you save yourself time and money.
