How to Repair a Cracked Concrete Floor
LESLIE: Gene in Georgia is dealing with some cracks in the concrete. Tell us what’s going on.
GENE: I have a problem in my garage and in the outside. I have some small cracks that need to be sealed in the garage and in the outside.
GENE: And I was trying to figure out what the best way might be to get that done.
TOM: So the cracks are in the concrete surface, the floor, the – what about the …
GENE: Yes, concrete surface. Yes.
TOM: OK. So we’re talking about the floor or the foundation or what?
GENE: The floor.
TOM: The floor? Alright, well there are a couple of options here. If they’re wide cracks, you can use a product called a flowable urethane. If they’re narrower cracks, you can use silicone or you can use an epoxy patching compound. But you don’t want to use regular concrete because that’ll simply crack and fall off.
LESLIE: Won’t ever stick in there.
GENE: And do they carry something like that at The Home Depot?
TOM: I’m not sure if they have it at Depot but, if not, you could find it at a lumberyard, I’m sure.
GENE: Oh, OK.
GENE: Alright. You’ve been very helpful. I really appreciate your help.
TOM: You’re very welcome. Thanks so much for calling us at 1-888-MONEY-PIT.
