Concrete Crack Repair
Cracked concrete is a common problem that not only affects your property’s appearance but also indicates underlying issues that lead to further damage. Dealing with cracked and sinking concrete can be worrisome for homeowners, but Dry Pro Crawlspace & Foundation Repair Specialists has the solution.
Our proprietary PolyRenewal™ polyurethane injection process lifts sunken concrete slabs and helps seal cracks once the concrete is stabilized. Homeowners across the Charlotte, NC metro area have relied on our state-of-the-art repair process for years, and we’re excited to bring this innovation and excellence to your home.
As experts in the field, our primary goal is to provide tailored solutions that enhance the safety and value of your property. This page explains how our specialized services can restore and protect your concrete surfaces.
What is Concrete Crack Repair?
Concrete crack repair is a comprehensive process designed to fix concrete surface damage caused by unstable soil and other factors. Simply filling cracks with caulk or other materials is a temporary fix that doesn’t address the root causes of the problem, which often begins in the soil.
At Dry Pro, we go beyond patching cracks. We utilize a concrete lifting process called PolyRenewal™ to gently raise sunken sections, stabilizing the concrete. This often reduces visible cracks and seals them once the slab has solidified, ensuring both safety and aesthetics, even when soil issues persist.
Signs Your Home Needs Concrete Crack Repair
Concrete cracks can appear on various surfaces, including:
If you notice any of the following signs, it’s time to consider a concrete repair solution:
- Visible and expanding cracks in concrete surfaces
- Cracks wider than ¼”
- Uneven or sinking concrete slabs
- Tripping hazards
- Concrete sinking away from the house
- Cracked walls or damaged siding above sunken concrete
- Crumbling edges
- Pitting, flaking, and staining on the concrete
- Water pooling on the concrete after rain
- Weeds growing up between concrete sections
Identifying concrete cracks and other damage early allows for less invasive repairs, protecting your investment and preventing further costly damage.
Is Concrete Crack Repair Necessary?
Repairing concrete cracks is essential. Beware of quick-fix repairs that don’t address the root causes. These issues can worsen over time, leading to more significant problems and increased costs. Addressing concrete damage early prevents further deterioration, ensuring the longevity of your slabs and saving you money.
Acting early can also optimize the effectiveness of solutions like PolyRenewal™, making it a crucial component of our comprehensive home solution.
What Are the Benefits of Concrete Crack Repair
Concrete crack repair offers numerous advantages, including the following:
Lifting uneven, sunken areas of concrete eliminates trip hazards. Sealing cracks prevents further fractures that could potentially harm loved ones or damage vehicles. Overall, concrete repair improves property safety.
Stopping Further Damage
Injecting expanding foam underneath compromised concrete slabs stabilizes the ground beneath, preventing continued sinking and settlement. This protects your concrete investment and prevents worsening issues.
Enhancing Appearance and Value
Cracked uneven concrete looks unsightly and diminishes your property value. Our concrete solutions can make cracked surfaces look brand new again. Our specialized products and skilled team can restore your concrete to its original, smooth appearance.
Prolonging Concrete Life
Left untreated, minor cracks become major repairs. Concrete lifting and stabilization treatments protect the integrity of the slab and prevent the need for complete slab replacement. Our products strengthen concrete surfaces and extend their lifespans.
To maximize these benefits, we encourage homeowners to utilize our proprietary PolyRenewal™ system. Our exclusive products, designed with our expertise, outperform generic solutions available in the market by providing superior performance and durability.
How Our Concrete Crack Repairs Work
To fully address concrete cracks, Dry Pro Crawlspace & Foundation Repair Specialists’ certified team follows these essential steps when installing PolyRenewal™:
- Drill small, penny-sized holes into the concrete.
- Place injection ports in each hole.
- Mix and prepare the two-part, closed-cell polyurethane foam.
- Inject foam beneath the concrete slabs through the ports.
- The expanding foam fills the voids beneath the concrete and lifts the slab.
- Allow the foam to fully cure (approximately 15 minutes).
- Remove the injection ports and fill and smooth out drilled holes.
- Seal cracks and joints to prevent future damage.
- Schedule regular maintenance for your concrete slabs.
With the right tools, training, and products, Dry Pro’s concrete repair process is efficient, minimally invasive, and provides long-lasting results.

We do not use conventional fillers to address concrete cracks. Our approach involves injecting high-density polyurethane foam under concrete to lift and stabilize it. While we do not “repair” concrete cracks, we can often close the cracks. We also apply a silicone-based sealant to the cracks and joints once the concrete is stabilized.
