Concrete Crack Repair
If your concrete driveway or sidewalk has several cracks throughout, Denver Concrete Inc does offer crack chasing services. This process routs and seals all concrete cracks. This type of concrete repair is for cracks that are more dormant. The crack repair isn't structural or doesn't involve the restoration of tensile strength. This means that the concrete crack repair doesn't restore the original integrity of the concrete. These repairs only help prevent further damage and accelerated cracking elsewhere throughout the concrete.
One common mistake made in sealing concrete cracks is to use concrete patch or some other type of cement material. While this type of product might look good initially, it will undoubtedly "shrink". This means it will crack over time giving you the same issue to fix again. A more durable fix is to use a sealant that is applied to the "groove" created by "routing" or chasing the crack.
Concrete Surface Repair
Concrete resurfacing or concrete overlay services can bring back the life of a concrete patio or concrete driveway. If your concrete is "good", meaning that the integrity of the concrete in question is still solid. Than you might be a good candidate for concrete resurfacing or overlay. You can read more about our concrete resurfacing here.
The huge advantage to resurfacing over replacement is that it is about half the cost of total replacement! So many customers that are looking for a more affordable alternative to replacement often choose concrete resurfacing as an option.
We do not recommend concrete lifting and feel that it is a waste of time (in the link posted here, LiftRight Concrete discusses why concrete lifting is better than new concrete slab). That is a pretty bold statement, but we simply cannot sell a service just to do it. It is something that we must believe in. Concrete lifting has proven to be just as expensive (almost) as tearing out and replacing the concrete in question.
We have run estimate after estimate and compared replacement concrete to concrete lifting estimates. We have found that new concrete is marginally more expensive (in most cases 20% more for brand new concrete). Read more about concrete lifting compared to replacement here.
Why install new concrete versus lifting old concrete?
Lifting concrete is blindly fixing the issue that is beneath your concrete. The area you are lifting has dropped because of a failing base or lack thereof below the concrete surface. In order to appropriately address the issue, the concrete needs removal, the base needs to be rebuilt in order to properly address the issue.
Simply lifting the concrete back into place will place additional pressure on the concrete slab that is being lifted. It will often times create additional cracking in the surface.
