Besides making a home or business appear neglected, cracks in concrete often cause concrete to eventually buckle and heave, creating a potential for car damage and making it dangerous for passersby to walk on. Concrete Repair and Restoration is essential for value and safety. With concrete fillers and other methods, many tools, proportioning and primers are needed as well as days to dry. Polyurethane repairs are completed and ready for use the same day. With polyurethane repair materials like FlexSet, concrete repair and patching is quick, strong and simple. Because the polyurethane repairs are not as rigid as the concrete, the repaired concrete is stronger, and further breakdown is eliminated.

How to Proceed:
Just as you would with a small crack, make sure that the damaged area is clean and dry. Sweep or blow out cracks so there is no loose debris. If the damage is bigger than 1/2 inch wide and ½ inch deep, special rock can be provided to place in the hole. Using FlexSet, pour contents of bottle “a” into sand in provided 5-gallon bucket. Next, pour bottle “b” into sand mixture and mix with a paddle-mixer, using a common household drill. When mixture is completely wet, pour FlexSet onto damaged area and use a trowel or lute to smooth material into damaged area. When repair is sufficiently smooth, toss topping sand by hand over repaired area to create a uniform look and feel.
