The process to repair cracked concrete garage floor
Concrete is a hard and rigid substance. So, it will inevitably crack over time, especially with Ohio’s humidity and temperature changes. Control joints and expansions joints also contribute to garage floor cracking. However, these features function as a means of preventing the cracks from spreading to the entire floor by sending them down predetermined paths.
If you see cracks forming on your floor, it is best to treat them as soon as possible even if they are small cracks. We have the experience and tools necessary for precision crack repairs and epoxy coating installations, so we can restore and protect your concrete flooring.

Steps for crack repair
We begin crack repair by chasing cracks with a hammer and cold chisel. We position the chisel in the crack and hit it with a hammer, breaking off any loose debris. Then, we clean the debris with a wire brush and vacuum out the cracks.
After we complete the initial crack repairs, we will grind and sand your flooring until smooth. This will improve the effectiveness of our polyaspartic epoxy application. Most importantly, our polyaspartic coatings will fill the cracks, protect the underlying concrete, and give your floor a stylish new finish.
