Why Delaying a Concrete Crack Repair is a Bad Idea

You may think a small crack in your concrete is just an eyesore; however, this little concrete crack may cause you even bigger problems in the future. Cracks are caused by a number of different factors due to the soil, including ground movement, washout, dry-out, and poor weather conditions. 

Not only do concrete cracks negatively affect overall aesthetics, but most importantly, they can impact the structural integrity of your home. Concrete cracks can occur anywhere, but especially in slabs (flatwork), walls, and columns. Cracks provide an opening for moisture to seep below the slab, causing the underlying soil to soften or wash away completely. 

Filling Concrete Cracks with NexusPro™

We know DIY concrete repair sounds like the tempting first choice over calling a professional. With the ability to buy polyurethane caulk at your local hardware store and hundreds of YouTube videos at your fingertips, sealing cracked concrete appears to be a job anyone can do. However, polyurethane caulk has its disadvantages–it’s known to dry out and crack when exposed to the sun over time. 

At AquaGuard Concrete Leveling, we use a silicone-based epoxy sealant for joints and cracks called NexusPro™. Our concrete crack sealant, NexusPro™, has the ability to withstand harmful UV rays, which means it won’t be susceptible to bubbling, cracking, or drying like polyurethane caulk will. NexusPro™ solution is engineered by Supportworks, Inc, North America’s largest residential foundation and concrete repair manufacturing network. AquaGuard is the only authorized Supportworks contractor in north Georgia, and Instead of attempting to do it yourself, contact the experts at AquaGuard and learn how our NexusPro™ sealant, replate with our concrete leveling foam, PolyLevel®, will restore your concrete slab and bring it back to life.

NexusPro™ Can Be Paired with the PolyLevel® System

One of the biggest advantages to NexusPro™ is that it can easily be paired with the PolyLevel® System as a comprehensive concrete protection system. First, PolyLevel® foam is injected to lift and level your concrete. From there, NexusPro™ is used to fill your cracked concrete and seal the control joints. As part of the final step, a coat of SealantPro™ is applied to the whole surface, providing an extra layer of permanent protection against all elements. 

Other Advantages of NexusPro Installation

Can Be Installed Year-Round

Because NexusPro™ can easily withstand extreme temperatures, it can be installed no matter what weather conditions are in the forecast. 

Cures in 60 Minutes

As a homeowner, we understand your busy lifestyle doesn’t include time waiting for the sealant to dry. NexusPro™ cures in just 60 minutes, which is a fraction of the time needed for other urethane-based caulking products.

Long-Lasting & Durable

Compared to polyurethane sealants, NexusPro is the long-term repair solution for your cracked concrete. It offers long-lasting, durable protection and comes with a five-year warranty to ensure functionality into the future.
