Basement floor repair process
Concrete materials are naturally stiff and rigid, so they are bound to crack over time, especially without proper protection from Ohio’s climate. Control and expansion joints can also cause cracking. However, these joints are necessary for preventing the cracks from extending through the entire floor. In fact, control joints will send cracks down preset paths to minimize damage.
If you are noticing cracks in your concrete floor, the best course of action is to fix them sooner rather than later. Even cracks that are small will eventually become serious issues if left unattended. So, we offer our experience as basement flooring contractors to thoroughly repair any cracks and install our high-performance epoxy to prevent further damage.
Recommended repair materials
Home improvement and hardware stores offer a myriad of concrete crack filler products. However, for long-lasting repairs, you need high-quality polyaspartic epoxy and precision repair services from proven basement floor repair contractors. Here at OGI, we offer polyaspartic epoxy coatings with unparalleled strength.
We have developed our basement floor coatings to function optimally in Ohio’s unique environment, so they offer more protection and last longer than competing products. Our polyaspartic epoxy is designed with polyaspartic polyurea.
As a result, it can protect the underlying concrete floor from virtually any wear and tear. Dirt, dust, mold, mildew, flooding, road salts, and corrosive chemicals are no match for OGI flooring! Additionally, our polyaspartic coatings contain a crack filler compound for more effective repairs.
Crack repair steps
Our crack repair process starts with chasing the cracks with a hammer and cold chisel. We will use the chisel and hammer to break off loose debris in the cracks followed by cleaning the debris with a wire brush and vacuum.
Once the initial repairs are complete, we grind and sand the concrete until completely smooth. As a result, applying our polyaspartic coatings will be much more effective. In fact, this epoxy will fill the cracks, protect the concrete, and give your floor a visually stunning finish.
In addition, OGI specializes in repairing heaved concrete. If you are notice heaving in your garage or basement concrete floor, do not hesitate to contact us today.
