Repairing Cracks in Concrete: 7 Minutes is All You Need


Doing fall preventive maintenance should include taking care of all the small or large cracks in your concrete driveway, steps, or walkways.
I recently did a small project that as you'll discover is pretty darn easy and can stop cracks from turning into bigger headaches.
If you have small horizontal cracks you can use concrete filler to seal them tight. Larger cracks should use polyfoam tubing as a filler then concrete filler on top-kinda like adding ketchup to a hot dog :).

    Buy a polyurethane. They have many colors available. Sonneborne NP or Vulkem are the best.

    We used a SIKA product (from Home Depot) to fill our expansion joints in the driveway, after the originals got old and disintegrated. The SIKA lasted quite a while (5+ years) but needs to be replaced now. We also filled some sidewalk joints with TREX. Since the originals were 2 x 4's it was an easy swap. I think they will last longer.
