When you encounter flaking on the concrete’s surface, this can be a signal that the original concrete was not mixed properly.

  1. I have a few cracks in the poured foundation and floor of our home, which was built in 1977. I did a Raydon test last year and found we were just slightly above the level. My question is if I fill the cracks in our foundation walls and floor, can I expect to see the levels come down a bit? WHat would you recomment to fill the cracks? Cement patch mix, caulk, hudraulic cement, Quickrete, etc…???

  2. Hi Terry,
    How wide are these cracks? I would go with a cement mix. The big question is figuring out if your floor needs to be sealed. Have you ever done a moisture test? Sealing your concrete will also help to keep gasses from entering your home as well as moisture. You have several options for sealing: sealing, painting/sealing, epoxy paints, etc. Browse the full article archives of the site.

  3. Hi,
    I am in need of some advice on what is the best course of action. I recently purchased a 1950 built 2 – car garage split level in Northern NJ . As you can imagine given the age of the house there are some cracks in the garage floor, and some significant pitting/erosion in places. the cracks are in places quite large about a 1/4″ with one edge higher than the other again about 1/4″ higher. Is there a way I can resurface and basically relevel this by repouring over the surface with fresh concrete or do I need to have something more significant done. I’m also considering converting half the garage in to additional living space.
    Thanks

  4. Hi James,
    It’s kind of hard to suggest anything at this point. You really need to seal those cracks first (caulk is a good option). If the concrete finish itself has a slick finish too. I think the article (above) should give you enough information so that you can draw your own conclusions. If you still need help, be sure to drop back in with more information about the present floor.

  5. We have a new home and have a number of hairline cracks in our garage floor due to settling. What is the best way to repair these cracks?

  6. Bob,
    If this is a new home, I would contact the contractor or builder and see if this is covered under warranty to be repaired. Cracks in concrete should be filled in with concrete as described in the article above.
