Process for repairing large cracks in concrete garage floor
Concrete is naturally rigid, so it is bound to crack over time. Factors like temperature and humidity in Ohio also contributes to garage floor cracking. Control and contraction joints are another common cause of cracking. However, these features are in place to force cracks to travel down specific tracks, so the cracks cannot spread to the entire concrete slab.
Once cracks begin to appear on your floor, the best course of action is to deal with them as soon as possible. OGI offers the tools necessary for high-precision repairs and epoxy installations for long term protection of your floor.
Recommended repair materials
Garage floor repair materials come in many forms. However, if you want the most effective repairs, polyurea, polyurethane, and polyaspartic epoxy are the best options. Thankfully, polyaspartic floor coatings are an OGI specialty.
In fact, we have designed our polyaspartic floor coatings to work perfectly in the Ohio garage. Our polyaspartic coating systems consist of polyaspartic polyurea, so it can protect your floor from virtually any incoming damage. Dirt, dust, mold, mildew, flooding, road salts, chemicals, and even heavy impacts are no match for OGI flooring. Additionally, our polyaspartic epoxy contains a concrete crack filler compound, so it is ideal for garage flooring repair.
Crack repair steps
First, we chase the crack with a hammer and cold chisel to break any loose edges on the side of the crack. We position the chisel in the crack and hit it with a hammer to break off the debris. Secondly, we clean out the remaining debris and scrub the cracks with a wire brush.
Once the initial crack repairs are complete, we grind and sand the floor until it is completely smooth. So, applying our high-strength polyaspartic coatings more effective. Our coatings will not only fill the cracks and offer long term protection, but they will also give your flooring a visually stunning aesthetic.
