How to fix cracked concrete

Preparation is important for concrete patch repair. Call us for guidance on which concrete tools to hire and which filling products to use for your specific task.

Before you start using concrete filler, however, you need to clean the floor to make sure there is no oil or dirt on the surface to help the filler bond to the cement. Next, chisel the crack clean '' 'keying' the hole to make the base or inside of the crack bigger than it is at the surface – either using a hand chisel and a hammer, or by hiring a scrabbler and scarifier. This will help the new patching material bond with the old crack.

Once you've finished keying the hole, brush away any major debris and then vacuum the area thoroughly before spreading concrete repair mortar such as Epoxy into the cracks according to the manufacturer's instructions. Trowel off to smooth out the surface. You will then need to leave the filler for as long as is recommended by the manufacturer before the surface is ready to be used or walked on. It is a good idea to finish by sealing the concrete to prevent it from absorbing stains, using a product such as water-based polyurethane. Always check that the sealant you use is suitable for the concrete area you are tackling.
