The Process for Grid System Concrete Crack Repair

The process is simple. We start by preparing the cracks in the concrete. Routing the cracks initially and cutting relief cuts every 12" perpendicular to the crack. The crack routed with a 4" V shaped grinder. Routing the concrete clears out any failing concrete that might be loose and cause our crack repair to fail. Once the crack is routed and the perpendicular cuts made long the crack line, the crack line will cleaning. It is best to clean with a shop-vac or vacuum of some kind.

Once the crack line area has been cleaned of any debris, it is time to install the carbon fiber strips into our "grid cuts". These were the cuts that were made perpendicular to the crack. Here we broadcast epoxy and Portland cement or sand into the actual crack. For larger or wider cracks we will install epoxy, broadcast sand or Portland cement into the crack and then continue to overlay with epoxy. This seals the crack as well as fills it. The carbon fiber grid will start to relieve pressure in the crack line and redistribute the weight of the pad.

If the carbon fiber strips are above the concrete surface after curing, do not worry. These can be ground along with the epoxy for preparation of the new overlay. The crack repair can also simply be left as is. The new epoxy treatment will serve as a sealant.

That is it for the concrete crack repair. This system will permanently fix the crack and no further cracking should appear in the neighboring area.
