Why did my concrete floor develop cracks and how to repair it?
Cracking isn’t at all uncommon in basement and garage floors. Concrete often makes these kinds of floors more susceptible to frustrating cracks. Here’s a few reasons why concrete cracks.
Why Concrete Cracks
Some floors cracks are tiny and barely visible. Others are much more conspicuous. Shrinkage cracks are often seen on basement and garage floors. They emerge after concrete slab curing.
Curing minimizes concrete slab volume as the consequence of H20 content evaporation. This leads to the emergence of cracks that show up in particularly feeble sections. There are numerous different varieties of shrinkage cracks, too.
Map cracking is often characterized by shallowness and appearances that are somewhat reminiscent of spider webs. Settlement cracks, on the other hand, arise after structural breakdowns occur. Shifts in elevation can make certain sections of cracks go lower down.
