Slab/Floor Cracks

Concrete cracks happen, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore them, especially in your Edmonton home’s basement, garage floor, patio, or pool. While some minor cracks may be due to harmless causes like drying or temperature changes, Smart Foundation Solutions knows even small cracks can become bigger problems.

Over time, cracks can widen and lead to water leaks or, worse, compromise the structural integrity of your foundation. Not only are these cracks unsightly, but they can also significantly decrease your home’s value.

Don’t wait for a minor annoyance to become a major headache. Smart Foundation Solutions is here to help. Our team can assess the cracks, identify the cause, and recommend the most suitable repair solution – whether it’s simple crack sealing or addressing underlying foundation issues.

We offer peace of mind and protect your Edmonton home’s value. Contact Smart Foundation Solutions today for a free consultation and keep your basement (and other concrete surfaces) safe and sound.

We offer a full range of slab & floor crack services

While concrete cracks appear to be typical, it is not recommended that they remain ignored. Most homeowners best identify concrete cracks in their basement, either on the foundation wall or on the floor. They may also recognize cracks on the garage floor, patio or in-ground pool.

These cracks typically due to drying shrinkage, thermal movement or other causes usually are minor and result in few problems. More often than not, a foundation crack will widen over time and result in water seepage or possibly the loss of structural integrity. Foundation and slab cracks are not only an eyesore, but they may hinder the value of the home.

What Causes Cracks in Concrete Floors and How to Address Them?

Concrete is inherently strong but lacks ductility, meaning it does not stretch or bend without breaking. However, it does expand and contract with temperature changes, which can lead to the cracks you may notice in your garage floor. Here are some common reasons for these cracks and what they mean for your home:

  • Foundation Settling: If a large tree was recently removed near your garage, the decomposition of its buried roots can create voids under the concrete slab. Over time, these voids can cause the slab to settle unevenly, resulting in cracks.

  • Excess Water in the Concrete Mix: Known as plastic shrinkage cracks, these occur when too much water is added to the concrete mix. This excess water evaporates, leading to decreased volume and the formation of cracks.

  • Rapid Drying: If the concrete slab dries too quickly, particularly on the surface, it can lead to cracking. This rapid drying can cause the top layer of the concrete to shrink faster than the bottom, creating stress that the concrete cannot withstand.

  • Overpressure on the Slab: Concrete has a high compressive strength but limited flexural strength. Overloading the slab beyond its load capacity can cause it to crack as it attempts to flex under the pressure.

If you notice cracks in your garage floor, it’s important to address them promptly to prevent further damage. At Smart Foundation Solutions, we specialize in diagnosing and repairing cracked concrete efficiently and effectively. Contact us today to ensure your garage floor remains safe and intact.

What people say about our services

Garage Repair

Our repair was done by Gill, he did a very good job repairing and filling our major cracks. To save money we painted the sealer ourself but Gill was very helpful and knowledgable in telling us all the information and products to seal the garage properly. Very pleased with the end result.

Foundation Repairs

We retained Smart Home Solutions to repair our basement foundation wall which required both structural and waterproofing repairs. Gil and his team completed the project in about one weeks time last fall and over the winter/spring and this summer we have had no issues with water intrusion. Smart Home Solutions offered an innovative solution as compared to other options that would have been far more intrusive and costly.

Best Service, Best Quality Of Work!

I had a major water leak from the floor in my basement and I called Smart Home Solutions. They came immediately and stopped the leak. Few days later (after everything dried up) they came and installed new interior weeping tiles. They were very quick and professional, left my basement very clean. It was an absolute pleasure doing business with them! I highly recommend them!

Egress Window Installation And Cement Cutting

First and foremost, Gil is an excellent communicator. For our job, he was forthright about what needed to be done, and punctual in its execution. He gave us a very fair price for the job and was able to do it very quickly. Much more reasonable the other's who quoted for the same job. I would highly recommend he take a look at your job and give his opinion.

Concrete Repair

They fixed the foundation with injection and HSS support. I’m very satisfied with their professional approach and would recommend this company for foundation repair.
