What causes concrete to crack?

Repaired Concrete

1. Concrete is a porous material
Concrete is a porous material that can absorb water from the ground. As the water seeps into the concrete, it expands and puts pressure on it, causing it to crack.

2. Temperature changes
Temperature changes can also cause cracks in concrete. In the winter, when water freezes, it expands and puts pressure on the concrete. When the temperature gets hot in the summer, the concrete can also expand and crack.

3. Shrinkage
Shrinkage is another common cause of cracks in concrete. As concrete dries, it shrinks slightly. This shrinkage can cause cracks, especially if the concrete is not adequately supported.

4. Poorly compacted subgrade
Poorly compacted subgrade can also cause cracking. If the soil beneath the concrete is not compacted correctly, it can settle and cause the concrete to crack.

5. Poorly placed reinforcement
Poorly placed reinforcement can also cause cracks. If the steel rebar or other reinforcement is not appropriately placed, it can create weak spots that will lead to cracks.

6. Sudden changes in loading
Sudden changes in loading can also cause cracks. It can crack if a concrete structure is suddenly subjected to a heavy load. This is often seen in bridges or other structures that are hit by vehicles.

7. Chemical reactions
Reactions between the concrete and chemicals in the environment can lead to cracking.

8. Poor workmanship
Poor workmanship can also cause cracks. If the concrete is not adequately mixed or placed, it can crack. This is often seen in poorly constructed buildings or homes.

Why should I get worried about broken concrete?

Broken or damaged concrete is usually a sign of underlying issues. It can be prudent to have experts assess the damage once you notice the damage. Dealing with the issue at the earliest possible time can help prevent further damage to the property in future and to your wallet with much higher costs.

 Contact John if you need help.

When do I need residential concrete repairs?

Residential concrete repairs are typically needed when the foundation has been compromised in some way, often due to damage by flooding. This is not always the case, however. Sometimes a simple crack can pose a critical threat to your home’s integrity if left untreated.

While most people have no idea what residential concrete repairs actually entail, the good news is that – regardless of the concrete damage you have, you can rest assured that we will help you. 

 Contact John if you need help.

Can we seek a second opinion from other professionals?

It’s always best to look around to find out what other people are saying before taking the plunge and hiring someone. This will give you an idea about prices and customer service which can be invaluable in making your decision. If you entrust your problem to us, we will make sure to be very transparent to you – address all your queries and offer you the best advice.

 Contact John if you need help.

It depends on location, accessibility of the area, the complexity of the damage, the size of your property, the work involved to fix the issue, and the company or contractor to work on the project.

One of the main reasons location is a factor in concrete repair costs is the availability of materials. In urban areas, there is usually a greater variety of concrete mix available, and this can drive up the cost of repairs. In addition, labour costs are often higher in urban areas as well while Coastal regions tend to be more.

Another factor that can affect the cost of repairing concrete is the type of damage that needs to be repaired. Cracks, chips, and holes will require different types of repairs, each with its own associated cost. 

The size of the damage will also play a role in repair costs. Larger repairs will usually be more expensive than smaller ones.

The severity of the damage will also affect concrete repair costs. A small crack may only require a simple patch, while a large hole may need to be filled with new concrete. The type of repair needed will also affect the cost.

And finally, if there are underlying issues, you will expect to invest more in the repair.
