Repairing concrete

Concrete will expand and contract due to temperature changes and shifts in the weight distribution of the building. This movement can cause cracks in the concrete flooring.

  • General Repairs Use a repair mortar for repairs over 3mm wide and 5mm deep.
  • Fine Cracks < 3mm wide Use a fine crack repair mortar to fill
  • Surface Levelling¬† a self leveling repair screed will make a surface more even
  • Vertical Repairs Use a light weight vertical repair mortar to minimize sagging.

 

Surface preparation
Read the directions prior to use on all products. First, remove all loose material and rake out with a bolster or scraper to create an area that will take filling more easily. Make sure the surface is dry, if necessary prime surface before application of repair product.
