Concrete Repair Contractor from Nichols / Grout Tech
Concrete can tell you a lot about your home or business, especially when it comes to your foundation. When concrete begins to crack and crumble, professionals will be able to tell you that your foundation may be experiencing foundation failure. Not only does Nichols / Grout Tech provide foundation repair services, but we also provide concrete repair, replacement, and finishing services, as well as grouting.
Concrete can be affected by a variety of things such as vegetation, soil movement, and curing time. Vegetation can include anything from tree roots to weeds. Large vegetation such as tree roots will push concrete upward causing cracking. Smaller vegetation, such as weeds, have the same effect. Though they are much smaller, they are incredibly persistent and will fight until they push through concrete, which can cause crumbling and cracking in the surrounding concrete.
Soil movement is a large reason that concrete cracks or crumbles. When soil fluctuates between moist and dry periods, the soil may move and leave behind holes in the ground, or voids. If these voids are large enough the concrete above it will begin to sink and settle into these voids, which will cause cracking.
If cracking or crumbling is happening to your business or home’s floors, walls, ceilings, or foundation, you must contact a professional here at Nichols / Grout Tech, because this may mean foundation failure, and we can help you identify it and repair it. This may also happen around your business or home such as in sidewalks or driveways. We can help repair or replace your concrete.

Epoxy injection is a very common form of concrete repair, in which a polyurethane formula is injected into the concrete crack. This material expands to fill every part of the crack. It is waterproofing, making sure that no water will be able to leak through the crack. It also “welds” the two sides of the crack back together which makes it so that the crack will separate no longer. It is an inexpensive way to fix cracks, but does not substitute for foundation repair.
