Keep your concrete crack-free and looking as fresh as the day it was poured with professional concrete caulking services from Brickheads Masonry in Detroit.
Concrete is a versatile, long-lasting material that is great for a variety of uses. People love it for garage floors, pool decks, driveways, and more. It can support the heavy weight of vehicles driving across it as well as the rigors of the weather.
Unfortunately, though it will hold up, it won't stay looking the same. Concrete has a major drawback. As a porous substance, concrete can absorb water through cracks and an unsealed surface.
When the temperatures drop and the water freezes, boom! Unsightly cracks can appear in your concrete.
How do you keep this from happening? By caulking the expansion joints, saw cuts, and anywhere else that water can get in to cause damage.
Whether a pool deck or driveway, when you spend thousands of dollars on a new concrete installation, you want it to last. And you want it to look nice. Concrete, though it will last, will not stay looking polished without help. Furthermore, it will last much longer than usual when protected from water problems.
If you'd like to prevent your concrete from cracking, give us a call to discuss the best way to protect your investment.
Your concrete caulking won't do you much good if it is improperly applied. The concrete must be cleaned and dried before applying the caulk. Plus, it is important to use the right materials and tools.
Temperature affects the adherence of the product, so the right material (or the right day) must be chosen to apply the caulk. Additionally, an inexperienced application can lead to air bubbles in the caulk. This can create a weak spot for water to get in and degrade the integrity of the entire job.
To ensure the caulking does its job, it's best to hire professional caulking contractors to install it so you don't waste your money and time.
Aside from cracks, water getting into the concrete can also erode the sub-base over time. This erosion greatly weakens the concrete and can make it uneven. This is a big problem for driveways or other concrete installations that bear weight. At some point, you may have to invest in mud jacking or another method to level your concrete slab and prevent it from breaking.
