Another type of concrete cracks are referred to as craze cracks. Craze cracking, also referred to as map pattern cracking, is the development of hexagonal cracking on the concrete surface. Typically, they are the result of the concrete drying out too quickly on a hot day. It is more noticeable on steel troweled surfaces, but can occur on traditional broom surfaces as well. Usually, craze cracking only becomes visible when the concrete surface is wet. The cracks are never more than an 1/8″ in depth, and pose no harm to the structural integrity or surface durability of the concrete.
