But if the crack is sinister and not the do-it-yourself kind, then it is most prudent to shell out a few dollars and hire some good repairmen. Such cracks occur due to rods which may have rusted inside and snapped or because of deterioration of the materials present within the concrete. Some leakage cracks when ignored can also reach dangerous levels. Such cracks are more found in poured concrete. Contractors treat the concrete foundation with urethane injections to extract the embedded water. They may even excavate the area around the foundation and replace the faulty tile or construct a provision for the water to lose contact with the foundation.
I called Brian the certified installer for the Cerlon product and showed him the problem. We decided that we could repair any of the aprons in the project that needed to be repaired using Cerlon. The aprons are 18” wide by the length of the door. We snapped a line half the width of the garage door thickness. We then installed a diamond masonry cutting blade on a skilsaw and cut a ¾” deep cut along the chalk line. The next thing we did is every 3 inches we scored the concrete the length of the door ¾” deep.
