What Is Epoxy Crack Repair?

Maybe it’s a gap in your porch steps or an unattractive lined crack running along your basement wall. Concrete cracks are as concerning as they are unappealing. After all, concrete is quite a hardy material and your home relies on concrete to uphold your porch, your foundation, your walkway, etc. It’s understandable to need to have those cracks repaired as soon as possible. At Childers Brothers, Inc., we recommend epoxy crack repair for a reason. Here’s everything you need to know about epoxy crack repair and why we use it for concrete cracks.

 

What Is Epoxy Crack Repair?

Epoxy crack repair is made up of epoxy resins that have cured, creating a heavy duty adhesive often used to seal concrete. We use high quality epoxy repair from Prime Resins, repair that’s used to prevent moisture, repair damaged structures, and of course seal concrete. In some cases the epoxy is itself stronger than the concrete it seals. This can be very handy, as epoxy crack repair often strengthens the concrete it seals rather than simply covering up the damage.

 

Other Forms of Concrete Crack Repair

Epoxy is the best form of concrete crack repair, in our opinion, but it is not the only form of concrete crack repair that you’ll find. Some of the others include:

  • Stitching – involving metal stitches and holes filled with epoxy
  • Routing and sealing of the cracks
  • Drilling and plugging
  • Grouting

Some of these methods involve epoxy already, while others may be more intensive than a simple epoxy injection…and less effective. Epoxy crack repair is one of the only methods that won’t require you to fix the crack again in just a few years.

 

Why Choose Epoxy Crack Repair

Simply put, epoxy crack repair is the strongest method of concrete crack repair out there. This is the only method which will not only repair the crack itself but strengthen the surface so that it’s unlikely to crack again. Our epoxy crack repair injections are precise, using just the right amount of adhesive and with as little mess as possible.
