Concrete is a tough, resilient and long lasting construction material. When it is installed correctly it can provide service for hundreds of years. However, despite its durability cracks can develop on any concrete surface, making concrete crack repairs in Edmonton a necessity.

With more than six decades of experience we can identify issues related to structural damage and water leakage and provide solutions while protecting the structure against further damage.
Why Do I Have Cracked Concrete?
Concrete is made of cement, gravel, sand, and water. As it cures, cement shrinks and tends to crack. There are a number of conditions that can cause concrete to crack. They include:
Quick drying process
Don’t Ignore Cracks
Most foundations have a few cracks. The trick is recognizing which ones are the most serious.
Cracks in concrete can lead to big problems. This is especially true for cracks in areas that people use every day, such as basements, driveways, parking areas, patios, foundations and other concrete surfaces. If a crack is not properly repaired the situation will only get worse, causing structural damage and water leakage.
Osco Mudjacking & Shotcreting Ltd repairs cracks in concrete using epoxy and polyurethane injection. Our experienced staff installs ports near the structure and uses those ports to fill the entire depth of the crack with mortar. Each pressure injection bonds the crack together and restores concrete soundness.
