Cracked Concrete Patio 

An inviting patio can elevate your outdoor experience, but without proper care, it can turn into a safety concern. 

A cracked concrete patio can cause tripping and might indicate more extensive home damage. 

Foundation Support Specialists recognize the importance of such issues and provide targeted, effective solutions. We’re dedicated to enhancing the safety and beauty of your Texas home with our specialized concrete lifting methods, ensuring your patio is both safe and enjoyable for your family. 

This page delves into the reasons behind cracked concrete patios and how our expert solutions can restore your home and peace of mind. 

What Is a Cracked Concrete Patio? 

A cracked concrete patio, often situated in your backyard, shows signs of wear over time with visible fractures or breaks, affecting both its looks and strength. 

These defects can range from tiny, shallow cracks to deeper, more concerning damage that can pose safety threats like tripping hazards. Cracked patios can become hotspots for pests, weeds, and water, leading to further wear. 

Other concrete issues you might observe on your property include: 

Delaying repairs can escalate the damage. If you spot these issues, get in touch with a local expert for guidance. Foundation Support Specialists offer a thorough approach to determine the damage’s cause and extent, ensuring lasting repairs. 

What Causes a Cracked Concrete Patio? 

Various factors contribute to cracked concrete patios: 

  • Settling Soil and Erosion: Shifts or erosion in the underlying soil can lead to an unstable concrete patio, resulting in cracks. 
  • Weather Conditions: Heavy rain or flooding can intensify soil erosion, especially in clay-rich areas. Water freezing and thawing in the concrete can also lead to cracks. 
  • Tree Roots: Expanding tree roots can exert pressure on the concrete, causing it to crack. 
  • Installation Problems: Errors during concrete pouring or curing can introduce weaknesses, leading to cracks over time. 

Similar issues affecting patios can also impact a home’s foundation, making prompt attention crucial. 

Can You Fix a Cracked Concrete Patio? 

Absolutely! Addressing the problem early on can lead to more effective solutions. 

However, mere surface-level fixes won’t suffice. Comprehensive repairs that tackle the root causes are vital for long-lasting results.
