Concrete Caulking Services Increase the Longevity of Your Investments

One of the best ways to prevent your concrete driveway, patio, sidewalks, etc. from sinking or cracking is with our caulking service at Mr. Level!  Caulking is a great way to stop water from leaking underneath your concrete, which can create a few issues for your property. 

Caulking is very important for the longevity of your concrete. If you caulk your seams, there is a very good chance that you're not going to have any issues with settling in the future. 

Caulking Can Prevent Cracks and Further Damage

Cracked sidewalk fixed with caulk could have been prevented with caulk | Mr. Level

In the picture above, you can see a crack that formed in this concrete sidewalk. You can also see that we have filled the crack and the two seams with caulk. The reason this crack formed was because there were already cracks in the seams, but the homeowner could not see them because they were hidden in the seams. 

If these cracks were to go uncaulked, water would still be flowing into them, getting underneath the concrete which would eventually cause the sidewalk to crack more and even sink in the future. Lifting an unleveled sidewalk or repairing it costs much more than the preventative measure of caulking the seams and cracks.

June 24, 2019 Category: General

The beauty of Ohio is that we truly get to experience all four seasonswinter, spring, summer, and autumn. From a concrete perspective, though, these different seasons can negatively affect concrete. When its too hot, too cold, or when both temperature extremes are felt in one day, the weather can damage your concrete, leaving unsightly cracks and uneven concrete. Heres how the different seasons can take a toll on your new and existing concrete. Winter You know how brutal Ohio winters can be. Freezing temperatures, snow, and ice can all wreak havoc on your concrete. However, salt can sometimes end up doing the most damage. Concrete is a permeable material, so even though its solid and strong, liquids and gases can still pass through it. When salt and other de-icing chemicals are put on concrete, the acidic properties of the salt can seep through the concrete and attack the bonds that hold the concrete together. This causes your concrete to deteriorate faster and cause cracks, voids,

This season, weve seen a lot of rain in Northeast Ohio. One of the most commonand importantjobs is preventing water from leaking into your home. At Mr. Level, weve helped both customers who already have water in their basement as well as people who see the water outside of their homes that hasnt made its way into their house yet. Before you give us a call, here are two places to check around your home to prevent water leaks. 1. Gutters Look up: Are your gutters draining the water toward your house or away from it? A quality gutter system will collect the rainwater that runs off your home and deposit onto the ground away from your home. There could be a number of reasons why your gutters are draining water toward your home. Do your gutters need to be cleaned? Leaves and other debris often gets trapped in the system, causing rain water to spill close to the foundation of your home. Are your gutters sagging? You may need to replace the hangars. And dont forget to inspect your downspouts.

Your daughter likes to dribble around your driveway. You love shooting hoops with your son. Playing basketball in your driveway is good for more than sneaking in some quality family time or becoming the next Lebron James. Your driveway basketball court can also be a great tool to test the strength of your concrete. Fill Driveway Voids Do you hear an echo when your dribble a basketball on your driveway? Do you feel like the ground is shaking? When this happens, it means there is a void under your driveway. Voids can cause the concrete to crack, which can lead to trip hazards and injuries. Polyurethane can be used to fill the voids under your driveway. The process is simple: We drill a dime-sized hole, put our ports in the ground, and the foam goes in. The polyurethane foam expands to fill the voids and hardens within 15 seconds. The best part is that it doesnt have to interrupt your basketball game! Because of the quick cure time, you can be back shooting hoops on your driveway immediately. Level
