No matter how much we love concrete here at Raleigh Concrete Contractors, we have to come to terms with the fact that it is not a perfect material. But what do we mean by a perfect material? Well, it is safe to say that a perfect material would be one that never breaks and never gets damaged. Unfortunately, whilst concrete is pretty durable and doesn’t easily break, it has its weaknesses just like any other block of matter! But never fear! Here, in North Carolina, in the city of Raleigh, we have a great team that is good enough to meet all of your concrete needs, keeping you safe and secure in your houses with walls and foundations that are properly maintained and protected from the natural weaknesses that can sometimes set in.
But What Do We Mean By Weakness?
Essentially, the answer to that is cracks. They can come in all different shapes and sizes and they all need slightly different approaches if you want to fix them. Cracks form in concrete for lots of different reasons but the central issue is at the source. When concrete is poured or layed, there are sometimes air bubbles or areas of less density where the concrete gets weakened over time and a crack forms. Also, unless you are careful, there is a chance that wildlife may start to make the concrete their home. Plants are determined things, you know. If you see a crack in the concrete, there is a likelihood that it may be followed by weeds in the near future, whose roots will run through the concrete. Both of these weaknesses are easily solved but you have to contact the professionals early. If you do not, then there are severe consequences down the road.
How Can We Help?
When there are cracks in the concrete, the solution is simple. We mix a concrete solution that has enough density to merge well with the existing concrete and we pour it into the cracks. The reason why it is important to get a professional to do this kind of work is because we can see where the concrete is weak and we can chip away at areas that need renewed concrete solution. We won’t just get the concrete looking nice once we’re done, it will have a secure base for the future as well. If the concrete is too far gone and needs replacing, then we can certainly talk about how to achieve that and we have the heavy-duty equipment to be able to smash old, tired concrete and replace it in the right way for whatever structure we are working on. In short, whatever the problem is, we will come to a solution together and you can trust us to make sure that you don’t have any more problems in the near future. Once the work is completed, we always perform a full clean up and we can advise you on how best to maintain the concrete and how to spot problems. We are confident that when you have seen the work that we do, you will consider us the number one concrete contractor in Raleigh, NC, for all future needs!
