Concrete Expansion Joint Repair

What to Know About Con­crete Expan­sion Joint Repair

Why you should take care of expan­sion joints?

Con­crete floors are built with expan­sion joints that allow for some flex­i­bil­i­ty in the rigid struc­ture. This is impor­tant because changes in tem­per­a­ture and shifts in heavy loads put pres­sure on a con­crete slab that would oth­er­wise cause it to split. The prob­lem, how­ev­er, is that expan­sion joints can dete­ri­o­rate over time, caus­ing health and safe­ty con­cerns (as well as dimin­ished aesthetics).

How Do Expan­sion Joints Deteriorate?

Over time, shifts in the soil beneath your struc­ture can cause your slab to rise and fall uneven­ly. When this hap­pens, the con­crete on either side of the expan­sion joint gets off lev­el. Anoth­er con­cern is the chip­ping and goug­ing that can hap­pen along the expan­sion joints. This hap­pens nat­u­ral­ly as vehi­cles and car­go tra­verse your floor.

These dam­aged expan­sion joints can become a safe­ty haz­ard, caus­ing fork­lift loads rock dan­ger­ous­ly, and caus­ing a trip­ping haz­ard for foot traf­fic. Also, debris and con­t­a­m­i­nants tend to col­lect in these areas. 

If your con­crete floors are in less than fan­tas­tic con­di­tion, or even down­right ter­ri­ble con­di­tion, Kaloutas has the exper­tise, the knowl­edge, the equip­ment and the per­son­nel to restore your floors to opti­mal condition.

Repair­ing Con­crete Expan­sion Joints

At Kaloutas, we can repair your con­crete expan­sion joints so that they look bet­ter than ever. Our process fol­lows the fol­low­ing steps:

  • Grind away any uneven­ness in the surface
  • Clear out any chipped coat­ings or debris
  • Use an epoxy and con­crete expan­sion joint filler to recre­ate a smooth, lev­el surface.
  • Cut a new expan­sion joint in the repaired con­crete floor, and fill it with a flex­i­ble joint filler.

Once the expan­sion joint is repaired, we can also repair or replace the epoxy coat­ing on the sur­round­ing floor. At this point, the floor is safe, attrac­tive, and durable for many years.
