So where do you start?
Why causes a concrete floor to crack?
A concrete floor can crack for various reasons and it is actually quite common. So figuring out why your concrete has chipped or cracked will help you figure out the right steps for repairing it. Here are three of the most common reasons why your concrete floor may have cracked or chipped.
This is one of the most common reasons for cracks appearing in concrete. You can tell if the cracks in your concrete have been caused by shrinkage as they will be very fine. This is due to many factors including moisture level in the concrete and the speed in which it has cured. Shrinkage cracks will normally appear within the first 30 days after concrete has been laid.
Extreme temperatures will heat your concrete which can cause it to expand. When this happens, the concrete will press against anything near it – causing varying degrees of cracking.
Settling cracks can be caused by the ground moving during curing time or the movement in the ground from the weight of the concrete. Even moisture levels can create settling cracks.
Another term for this type of damage is called spalling. This happens on the upper layer of the concrete and can lead to flaking or chipping of the concrete. This can happen from just general wear and tear, chemicals, or extreme temperatures.
But don’t worry as these are all an easy DIY no stress fix.
