Concrete is a beautiful, durable, long lasting material that works great for a huge variety of flooring locations.
But nothing is perfect.
Concrete will inevitably crack. Because of the way it settles, shrinks, and hardens, cracks appear in the surface. That said, these cracks should be subtle and sparse. Most people probably won’t even notice them. As for the integrity of the concrete, that remains intact.
At what point do I need concrete crack repair, Minneapolis residents often ask us.
If those cracks become deep and wide or there appears to be shifting happening between the different sections, then you have a problem. It doesn’t mean the concrete needs to be replaced. It just means that some repairs need to be done.
And probably not by the person who installed it.

The method of crack repair depends on its situation. Size, age, depth, and wear all factor in to the methods used. It’s also important to determine the cause of the problem.
