Residential & Commercial Concrete Repair
Concrete is a durable material, and that’s why so many people choose it for their driveways, sidewalks, walkways, patios and more. Your concrete structure can last 25 years or longer with proper maintenance. WM Asphalt provides concrete installation and repair services to residential and commercial customers in the Salt Lake City area.
Lasting Concrete Structures
At WM Asphalt, we install concrete driveways, driveway extensions, flatwork, stairs, sidewalks, patios, pool surrounds and more. Concrete installation is a skill and hiring a Salt Lake City company with experience is important. Less experienced concrete installers can make mistakes in mixing the concrete, pouring it or creating the control joints.
If concrete is poured when it’s too cold, too hot, too humid or in other adverse weather conditions, it can affect the drying and setting process, shortening your concrete’s life span. If the control joints are not placed at the correct increments, your concrete could crack sooner than expected.
Concrete installers should also take care to make sure the concrete is incrementally sloped to a drainage area, so water does not pool on its surface.
Maintenance for Your Concrete
Like asphalt, concrete should be sealed every year or two, depending on the weather in your area and the amount of use your concrete gets. While some homeowners choose to attempt to seal coat their concrete structures themselves, using a professional company gives you better, longer-lasting results.
Before we seal your concrete, we thoroughly clean it with professional-grade cleaning products to prepare the surface for the seal coat. We choose the type of seal coating that will work best for your purposes, and we apply it correctly.
You can lengthen the life of your concrete by avoiding the application of ice melt to sidewalks, walkways and driveways. The chemicals eat away at the concrete, causing pitting and breakdown. Instead, consider using heated mats, kitty litter or sand.
If your concrete structure should crack, it’s important to get it repaired as soon as possible. Cracks in concrete allow moisture to penetrate the surface, and this can cause heaving and shifting of your structure.
If your concrete is crumbling or flaking, this is an indication of poor installation. Depending on the extent of the damage, we may be able to repair your concrete. However, sometimes the best course of action is to rip out the damaged concrete and repour it correctly.
