Common Issues With Concrete

Over time, your concrete can become cracked and worn out. Clayton Concrete Pumping & Backhoe specializes in pouring concrete in the Oklahoma City and Tulsa area. We’re experts in concrete and help our clients when they need a new slab poured.

 

Here are some of the things you can expect from your concrete when it gets older.

 

Stains and Discoloration

Stains and discoloration are one of the most common issues with concrete, especially oil stains. Did you know that the sun can also cause discoloration to concrete?

 

It is a good idea to move around unfixed furniture if you want to keep your concrete from bleaching out. The upside to concretes ability to absorb color is that it can be stained in a multitude of beautiful and attractive colors.

 

Cracks in Your Concrete

Cracks in concrete are a very common occurrence and luckily it’s not necessary to fix each one of them. You do, however, need to keep an eye on them to make sure they do not get larger and create a hazard to you or your vehicle.

 

Cracks can occur from weather changes and heavy vehicles. If you can stick a nickel inside of the cracks you should look into getting it repaired soon.

 

Erosion and Weather Concerns

Erosion is caused when the soil underneath is not compacted firmly enough before construction. Over time weather and the weight of your vehicles assist in this erosion process and the concrete starts to crumble or sag. It is, however, a fixable problem so there is no need to worry if you attend to it.
