How to Repair and Prevent Cracked Concrete

August 11, 2023 Sydney Eyster

Whether your concrete is old or new, it is susceptible to cracks. You may be thinking to yourself that this will not apply in your case because you take good care of your home. But cracked concrete occurs due to natural processes such as temperature fluctuations and moisture changes: things that are out of our control because, after all, no one can control the weather. However, what we can control is if and how we choose to seal our concrete. 

At Baird Foundation Repair, we offer a variety of solutions for cracked concrete: NexusPro joint sealant, SealantPro™ concrete sealer, and DecoShield™ tinted concrete sealer. Despite what their names may suggest, these products each serve different yet equally essential functions.  

Repairing Cracked Concrete with NexusPro 

Cracked concrete around your pool, in your driveway, on your patio, or on your sidewalks may look harmless, but looks can be deceiving. Cracks reduce the curb appeal of your home and can even lower its value. They are also a tripping hazard, which is just an accident waiting to happen. If the concrete around your residence already has a cracked appearance, then look no further! We have the perfect solution for you.  

NexusPro is our flexible, silicone-based sealant that seals joints and cracks in concrete with ease. Its one-of-a-kind formula allows it to withstand harsh weather and intense UV rays. A single application of NexusPro will seal all of your concrete cracks and joints permanently and only takes 1 hour to cure!  

To install NexusPro, our expert crew will first drill all of the concrete cracks, smooth, and prepare them. Then, they will fill the cracks with our NexusPro sealant and detail them with a layer of sand to give the concrete a fresh, finished look. Super simple and quick installation! 

Why & How You Should Seal Your Concrete 

If you have new, recently repaired, or intact concrete, and you want to maintain its appearance and appeal, then we recommend sealing your concrete with a sealant. A few benefits of sealing your concrete include increased lifespan, improved durability, protection from moisture and water damage, mold and mildew resistance, and, of course, damage and crack prevention. But you do not want to make the mistake of using just any sealant. Baird Foundation Repair offers superior concrete sealants that provide permanent protection, so you will not have to waste your time or money on multiple repairs.  

Prevent Cracked Concrete with SealantPro 

SealantPro™ is a penetrating concrete sealant. It works by absorbing into the cement and bonding with the chemicals in the cement on a molecular level to create a permanent barrier. This permanent barrier protects concrete from water, dirt, UV rays, and other contaminants. SealantPro™ only requires a single application, dries within minutes, and cures in 6 hours! With only one application and no need for future applications, SealantPro™ will save you money in the long run by providing you with lasting concrete protection.  

Protect & Beautify Your Concrete with DecoShield

DecoShield™ is a topical concrete sealant. It works by creating a layer of strong, protective coating on your concrete. The best features of DecoShield are that it comes in six colorsclear, light grey, grey, sand, caramel, and walnut and is eco-friendly. It is a translucent, tinted sealant that can enhance a dull driveway, harmonize mix-matched concrete, and increase your curb appeal. Like SealantPro™, it protects concrete from water, weather, and UV rays and will not crack or chip overtime.
