Why Does Concrete Crack?

Cn Res Cr Garage Driveway Uneven 15

Even those who buy brand new homes can’t escape the issues associated with cracking concrete slabs. This leaves many people wondering what causes concrete to crack in the first place—if even brand-new concrete is susceptible to cracks, what’s happening?

The reason even brand-new concrete can start to crack is because the cracking has almost nothing to do with the concrete itself. Issues arise when the soil beneath a slab washes out or compacts, leaving large voids of open space beneath the concrete. When this happens, your slab isn’t properly supported and the weight of the concrete will cause your slab to sink and, eventually, cracks will start to form.

Common Concrete Issues

Concrete Repair 4

The two most common concrete issues our team helps solve are sinking and cracking. As we mentioned, both these issues stem from a lack of support from the soil below your concrete slab. As long as the cracking is minimal and you’re acting early, both these problems can be repaired without requiring a full replacement.

VFS of Virginia Beach’s concrete floor leveling experts uses PolyLevelⓇ, a lightweight polyurethane foam that, when injected below your concrete slab, expands to lift your sunken slab gently back into place. The material is strong enough to uphold your concrete, but light enough that it doesn’t add much extra pressure to the already weakened supporting soils below. Plus, once we’re finished lifting your slab and everything is level, PolyLevel can cure in as little as 30 minutes, making it safe to walk or drive on much faster than with traditional methods.

There are plenty of options for concrete repair services in Portsmouth, Suffolk, and beyond, but not all lifting techniques are created equally.
Mudjacking is a common practice for many companies, and while the process is similar to PolyLevel, there are some key differences.

Mudjacking means injecting a mixture of mud and concrete below your slab, and the process of injecting this mixture is similar to the process of using PolyLevel. However, the mud and concrete mixture is much heavier, takes more time to cure, and is more prone to washing out in the future than PolyLevel.

VFS repaired some deteriorated blocks, removed and reinstalled a sidewalk, and installed a new discharge for a downspout to redirect any rain along with a bubbler pot. It was all down on time and within the budget. Well done VFS! Thanks.
