Nowadays, concrete buildings and concrete roads are the mainstream. Most of the latest engineering marvels still involve concrete during construction. Concrete is a good material for creating the foundation or any other part of a building because of its durability and strength. However, concrete is vulnerable to the effects of nature and the changing weather. As time goes by, concrete expands causing cracks to become visible on roads and on buildings.
Cracks can be easily ignored as they seem to be harmless. However, visible cracks can be a late sign of a serious problem already going on beneath the concrete. Most often than not, cracks already occur during the initial stages of constructions. These cracks are still tiny enough to be easily left unchecked. However, as time goes by, water or moisture gets trapped within these cracks. And as cold season comes, the moisture freezes and rises which pushes the crack further apart. Weeds are also one of the main reasons why concrete expands and leave cracks. As these weeds grow, they push further the concrete above them.
Whatever the reason for the cracks are, they must be repaired at the soonest time possible. Cracks are caused by the weakening of the walls and pillars in buildings and can create a lot of inconvenience on roads. There are a number of methods nowadays to address this problem. The most common among them is through sealing and crack filling. The wisest thing to do would be to simply fill in the gaps. As to what type of crack fillers to be used depends on the location of the crack or the nature of the building or road the crack is seen. For example, tennis courts require acrylic based fillers in common colors so that court owners won’t have to completely change the surface of the court just to hide the gaps.
