How to Fix Your Cracked Concrete in Pleasant City, Ohio

Tuesday, April 26th, 2022 by Dani Podlaski

Not only are cracks in concrete slabs unsightly, but they offer moisture a way to seep beneath the slab. This can cause the underlying soil to soften or even wash away completely, causing the slab to crack even further.


So how can these cracks be fixed?


NexusPro is a silicone-based sealant for joints and cracks that is formulated to provide long-lasting flexibility and to stand up to harsh weather conditions. Unlike traditional polyurethane sealants, it resists UV Rays and will not crack, bubble, or dry out.


The first step to installing Nexus Pro is drilling, smoothing, and preparing the cracks with non-absorbent backer rod filler. Then, the NexusPro sealant is inserted in the crack or control joint. Lastly, the cracks are detailed with a thin layer of sand, giving the concrete a uniform, finished appearance with no weeds growing through.


On top of being durable and long-lasting, NexusPro is a quick and easy solution. It cures in just 60 minutes, compared with 24-72 hours for urethane-based products.
