Concrete Repair Case Studies: Cracked Concrete Sealed and Repaired in Big Lake, MN

Thursday, August 12th, 2021 by Kal Aldrich


Whether you buy a nice house or have been living in the same house, it is important to protect your investment property by protecting your concrete. Your concrete can crack when part of the slab breaks and sinks due to soil that has washed away or shrunk. Since these cracks are unsightly and have gaps, it is easy for moisture to seep beneath the slab, causing a disturbance to the soil. To prevent that from happening, those cracks must be sealed. 

A homeowner in Big Lake, MN was seeing both of these opportunities. They wanted to protect their concrete and also seal the cracks. They worked with American Waterworks for the project. Ben, our Design Specialist, was able to provide them with a FREE inspection, affordable quote, and thorough presentation. The homeowner was confident in the product, its warranty, and our approach, so they moved signed the proposal and got a date set for the installation. 


Our Foremen and their crew members started the process by introducing themselves to the homeowner and ensuring all of their questions were answered before moving forward with the project. After a thorough introduction, our team got to work. To start, our crew applied our SealantPro over the concrete slabs. Our SealantPro protects the concrete, makes it last for 3-5 times longer than typical concrete, and is fully cured in just six hours. Next, our crew applied our sealant of NexusPro over the cracks to prevent moisture from seeping underneath and to give the concrete a polished appearance. To complete the work, our crews gave the homeowner a clear walkthrough of what they did, made sure the homeowner was happy, and answered any last-minute questions.
