Use Concrete Mender™ to repair cracks, joints and curling slabs under VCT or tile floors. The permanent performance and 10 minute cure turns this 2 day job into a one day (or one night) job. Keep business running with minimal down time.
For spalled or failed control joints that are reflecting through the tile and the slabs are not curled, clean out the joints with a dust collecting diamond grinder.
Repair the control joints with Roadware 10 Minute Concrete Mender™, grind the surface flush and replace the tile.
For curled and buckled slabs, a major retailer specifies this heavy duty solution. This is the ultimate fix it once and fix it forever repair.
Step 1: Remove VCT, Ceramic, or vinyl floor coverings.
Step 2: Saw cut parallel lines to the crack at a depth of no less than 1.5 inches. Ideally 30% of the slab depth.
Step 3: Chip out the concrete between the saw cuts. Clean the surface well with a wire brush and vacuum.
Step 4: Add Roadware 10 Minute Concrete Mender and Sand to the finished grade. Also use Concrete Mender to repair the underlaying crack. See Concrete Mender™ Bulk Application Instructions.
Step 5: Replace the floor treatment and open to store traffic.
