Concrete Repair in Kansas City

Repair Ugly Concrete Problems

Concrete expands and contracts as temperature changes and moisture levels vary. All cracks can be classified as active or dormant. If cracks are active, they show movement in direction, width or depth over a certain period of time. If the cracks are dormant, they show no signs of change. Some dormant cracks are of no danger, but if left un-repaired, cracks provide channels for moisture seepage, which can lead to damage. It is often the curing process that causes the concrete to shrink slightly, leading to hairline cracks. Larger stress cracks occur when a house settles or the ground beneath it shifts. These types of cracks typically don’t threaten the structure of the home, but they do create an entry point for groundwater, insects and radon gas. If you notice large, recurring cracks in your home, do not try to fix them yourself! The cracks might indicate a more serious structural problem; call us for an in-depth evaluation.
