One of the most common questions received on ConcreteNetwork.Com is about cracks that are developing in newly poured concrete. The homeowner will question why it is cracking and did they receive a shoddy job.
When installed properly, concrete is one of the most durable and long lasting products you can use around your home. But it is important that concrete contractors follow well-established guidelines with respect to concrete placement. Durable, high strength, and crack resistant concrete does not happen by accident.
Shrinkage is a main cause of cracking. As concrete hardens and dries it shrinks. This is due to the evaporation of excess mixing water. The wetter or soupier the concrete mix, the greater the shrinkage will be. Concrete slabs can shrink as much as 1/2 inch per 100 feet. This shrinkage causes forces in the concrete which literally pull the slab apart. Cracks are the end result of these forces.
Also, rapid drying of the slab will significantly increase the possibility of cracking. The chemical reaction, which causes concrete to go from the liquid or plastic state to a solid state, requires water. This chemical reaction, or hydration, continues to occur for days and weeks after you pour the concrete.
Control joints help concrete crack where you want it to. The joints should be of the depth of the slab and no more than 2-3 times (in feet) of the thickness of the concrete (in inches). So 4"concrete should have joints 8-12' apart.
In general, cracks wider than a credit card and running through the depth of the concrete are structural in nature and could be a sign of more serious problems (see Concrete Crack Repair Evaluation). These cracks -- no matter what the width -- are rarely acceptable. Consult an engineer or concrete repair professional to determine the cause of the crack and to recommend the best repair solution.
Owners of industrial, manufacturing and distribution center floors are familiar with the challenge of maintenance and repair that goes into owning this type of floor. Whether your floor was made by Kalman Floor Company or another company, the guide below will show common concrete floor repair and maintenance scenarios and procedures to get the most out of your industrial concrete floor.
Some cracking is typical in all concrete floors. Most cracking is the result of slab restraint. In ambient conditions, slabs will expand and contract as the ambient temperature and relative humidity rises and falls. When concrete slabs cannot move freely because of embedded restraints or subgrade friction, they crack. Other floor slab cracking is typically caused by overloading the slab or failure of the sub grade to adequately support the slab.

These photos show breaking of the floor surface finish (spalling) on two sides of a typical joint (armored and non-armored). Sawcut joints were made by the floor contractor when the floor was built. Construction joints were joints made by the floor contractor with forms (bulkheads), where the work was stopped for the day. Joint fillers are intended to act as a load transfer mechanism for wheels traveling across the joint.

This photo shows a relatively intact floor joint (non-armored). The floor finish is chipped and raveling (spalling) at the interface of concrete and epoxy joint filler. Sawcut joints were made by the floor contractor when the floor was built, using a saw.
Construction joints were joints made by the floor contractor with forms (bulkheads), where the work was stopped for the day. Joint fillers are intended to act as a load transfer mechanism for wheels traveling across the joint.
Continued use of the floor in this condition will permit forklift wheels to impact the interface at the surrounding intact concrete finish, increasing the spalled area. Also, forklift wheels will impact the joint and develop a rut as the wheel traverses it from both sides. Since all concrete shrinks over time, all joints widen, and maintenance is required. Concrete shrinks mostly from the evaporation of water not needed to hydrate the cement. There is more shrinkage at slab surfaces than at their undersides, which is why concrete slabs curl upward at joints.
