Concrete Texturing offers both a 2-year and 5-yr limited warranty from fading and delaminating. The 2-year warranty is applies to any product sealed with our acrylic sealant. The 5-yr warranty applies to any product sealed with our deluxe polyurethane sealant. All 2-yr warranties can be extended to 5 years if the surface is sealed after 2-years.
Concrete must be allowed to expand and contract with temperature changes. Joints provide a controlled crack for movement, thus all expansion joints are left in place and should not be filled with concrete.
Caulking can be placed over the cracks inside the control joints to help debris from getting stuck and help prevent water from getting underneath your concrete surface and causing damage. However, anytime a coating is being applied over concrete, the expansion joint or control joint should be remain exposed and worked into the design.
There are many methods to repair concrete cracks and at a wide range of cost. The method used to repair a crack is determined by many factors including, but not limited to, the purpose for repairing the crack, size, budget, and material going over the crack (tile, coating, etc.).
Regardless of the method used to fill a crack, there remains the possibility that the crack will retrace itself or re-appear. Whenever possible the crack should be worked into the design pattern of the coating. If cracking is an issue, Concrete Texturing may recommend a flagstone pattern. Since we free cut our flagstone we can trace along any crack making it a grout line within a flagstone pattern. Since our grout lines are slightly recessed, the crack is less visible. The crack is also much easier to repair if it opens up again in the future.
When preparing concrete for installation, Concrete Texturing uses a combination of muriatic acid, grinders, sanders, and pressure washers, depending on what is required to create the ideal profile. Chemicals are used to remove such items as oil, adhesives or paints. Concrete Texturing comes prepared for each job with all the above items because you are never 100% positive what method will work until we actually start working with the surface.
