HOW TO REPAIR FAILING CONCRETE EXPANSION JOINTS

Updated: Sep 11




Expansion joint replacement is the restoration of the joint edges where two concrete slabs meet. Because this is a joining area, it is particularly susceptible to damage from frequent wear and tear over time. Failing to repair expansion joints would see the edges eventually start to expose. This damage could lead to costly, and in some instances, irreparable damage to concrete


YOUR REPAIR GUIDE

1. Use a scraping tool to remove the old concrete expansion joint filler.

2. Vacuum out the concrete expansion joints.

3. Use a caulk gun with your expansion joint filler of choice and refill the joints. We recommend using a colour to match your concrete finish.

4. Once the expansion joint filler has been applied, scrape the sides and top of the joints to achieve a clean finish.


This process can take a lot of time, and you will be on your knees for most of it. Therefore, we recommend you add knee pads to your shopping list.
