Join the homeowners across the region who, for over 30 years, have trusted this advanced repair process. We are committed to restoring your concrete to its former glory. 

What is Concrete Crack Repair? 

Concrete crack repair addresses damage to concrete surfaces typically resulting from shifting soil and excessive moisture. 

While superficial fixes like caulk can provide temporary relief, they don’t treat the core problem. Foundation Recovery Systems goes beyond topical solutions. Through our specialized PolyRenewal™ method, we lift settled concrete and stabilize the soil beneath.  

Signs Your Home Requires Concrete Crack Repair 

Cracks can develop on many concrete surfaces, including: 

If you’re noticing the damage of 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 
  • Crumbling edges 
  • Pitting, flaking, and staining on the concrete 
  • Water pooling on the concrete after rain 
  • 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? 

Absolutely! It’s imperative to address concrete cracks without delay. 

Stay cautious of “quick fixes” that often neglect the underlying cause. Superficial solutions like mudjacking or repouring usually don’t rectify the root issues. 

By attending to damages early, the repair process remains non-invasive and straightforward. 

PolyRenewal™ tackles the core problems, reinforcing the soil beneath and preventing erosion. 

What Are the Benefits of Concrete Crack Repair 

Concrete crack repair offers: 

Enhanced Safety 

By rectifying uneven areas and sealing cracks, tripping hazards are eliminated, ensuring the safety of your loved ones and vehicles. 

Deter Further Decay 

Injecting foam beneath unstable concrete slabs stabilizes the base soil, preventing further settlement and guaranteeing the durability of your investment. 

Uplift Aesthetics and Asset Value 

Damaged concrete diminishes your property’s charm and worth. We revive your concrete, restoring its pristine appearance. 

Prolong Concrete’s Lifespan 

Untreated minor cracks can escalate to significant issues. Our repair methods reinforce concrete slabs, avoiding the need for replacement and extending their lifespan. 

Our unique PolyRenewal™ approach, combined with our expertise, assures unmatched long-term benefits. 

How Our Concrete Crack Repairs Work 

For reliable concrete repair, Foundation Recovery Systems follows this meticulous process: 

  • Drilling small, penny size holes in the concrete. 
  • 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 and fill and smooth out drilled holes. 
  • Seal cracks and joints to prevent future damage. 
  • Schedule regular maintenance for your concrete slabs  

Using the right tool and our years of experience, our method is efficient, minimally invasive, and guarantees lasting results.
