Concrete Repair Services

Don’t let the name Ford Asphalt Company fool you. We know our stuff when it comes to concrete repair in St. Louis. In fact, we’re one of the fastest growing St. Louis concrete companies around.

With its variety of extreme weather patterns, St. Louis can be very tough on concrete. The cold and heat can cause cracking and heaving to occur on just about any type of concrete surface. Concrete repair can be a cost effective solution for very small areas. This type of repair is localized to only the affected area, helping to reduce the scope of the project and keep the price down.

When Do You Need Concrete Repair?

When concrete begins to crack or the surface begins to flake off (called “spalling”), it’s time to consider some concrete repairs. Once the cracking process has started, repairs need to be made before it can affect areas of concrete that aren’t cracked. Removing and replacing the affected areas is the best course of action.

When concrete lifts up (known as “heaving”), it creates a crack and possibly a tripping hazard. When this occurs, one possible solution is to grind or mill the raised area to remove the trip hazard. But any cracks will still need to be repaired.

Another method of repairing an area that has heaved is to saw cut and remove only the area that has heaved and pour new concrete in the affected area. This is more of a structural and permanent repair and takes away the need to seal cracks since they have been removed. This type of repair also removes any trip hazards.

Featured Project: Private Subdivision in St. Charles, MO

Sometimes the best results are a combination of asphalt and concrete work. To help a local subdivision maintain their streets, we combined a 2” asphalt overlay with a vertical concrete curb that’s durable and keeps traffic safely on the road.
