When part of a concrete slab breaks and sinks into compressed or washed away soil, concrete cracks. Not only is cracked concrete unsightly, but it also offers a means for moisture to find its way underneath concrete slabs. This leads to the softening of soil or complete washout. From there, concrete only cracks further.
Cracks in concrete need to be sealed in order to prevent moisture from seeping into the soil underneath. Control joints that were cut between the slabs when they were first poured also need to be sealed to prevent further cracking. Though you could opt to seal cracks and joints with urethane caulk, that is only a temporary solution that often cracks, bubbles, and dries out over time. That means you'll just have to repeat this process continuously!

Fortunately, Adirondack Basement Systems makes fixing cracked concrete simple thanks to a breakthrough in technology only available from Adirondack Basement Systems and other concrete repair contractors in the Supportworks network.
NexusPro is a silicone-based sealant for joints and cracks specially formulated to provide long-lasting flexibility and to stand up to harsh weather conditions. Unlike traditional polyurethane sealants, NexusPro resists UV rays, which means it won't crack, bubble or dry out. That means a single application can seal the joints and cracks in your concrete driveway, patio, pool deck or sidewalk for years to come, protecting it from damage caused by soil compaction and washout.
The NexusPro solution is installed by a highly trained crew that specializes in concrete repair and protection. First, the cracks are drilled, smoothed and prepared with non-absorbent backer rod filler. Then, the NexusPro sealant is inserted in the prepared crack or control joint. Finally, the cracks are detailed with a thin layer of native sand, giving the concrete a uniform, finished appearance. And, of course, sealed concrete cracks mean no unsightly weeds growing through.
NexusPro offers several advantages over traditional concrete crack repairs:
