The prime cause of cracks in concrete foundation is seepage of water. Such cracks caused due to leakage of water are thin and hairline. They may widen over time, but they are present only in those areas where the seepage occurs. In order to repair leakage cracks, it is necessary first to investigate the source and the point from which the leakage originates.
Repair Driveway - Concrete Driveways wont last forever. Even the best laid concrete is subject to wear and tear, not to mention damage from sprinklers or other sources of water. Since driveways must carry heavy weight loads, the repaired area must be able to withstand significant pressure. The problem with concrete driveway crack filler, driveway concrete sealer and driveway cold patch is that the material is not as strong as the original concrete, and the bond is not always secure. When the repair breaks down, the damage is even worse than before it was fixed. What started as a simple driveway crack repair has turned into a major rehabilitation. With polyurethanes, the repair is strong yet flexible, preventing further breakdown. FlexSet actually bonds to the concrete driveway repair, making it last longer than just patching concrete driveways.
