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.

While concrete cracks appear to be typical, it is not recommended that they remain ignored. 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.

Does your concrete surface have noticeable cracks in it? Depending on the severity of the crack(s), there are many options available to fix the problem. For smaller cracks, there is an easy way to permanently repair them without the need for costly and disruptive excavation or drain tile. Poured foundation cracks may be repaired by using low-pressure injection of an epoxy or polyurethane foam material. The repair of concrete cracks in either the foundation or the slab may efficiently and effectively be completed in as little as an hour or more.

Are you looking to have a concrete surface removed? There are many ways that experts can go about doing it. Here are a few:
This method uses equipment with jaws which are hydraulically powered to crush and take away the concrete. Examples of this equipment would be the boom-mounted mechanical crusher and also the portable mechanical crusher.
This method uses abrasion and erosion techniques at first glance from the concrete until the first layer of concrete peels away from the rebar underneath. Rebar is the mesh of steel that supports the concrete and serves as a foundation. Hydromilling (also referred to as hydrodemolition) and rotary-head milling are the two types of this method.
