Fixing Deep Cracks in Concrete with Slab

Bothered by deep cracks in your concrete driveway, sidewalk or path? Well, now, summertime, is the right time to fix them!  

Fixing deep cracks in concrete is now a very easy and simple process, thanks to a caulking product called Slab.  Even if you are a complete beginner DIY-er, you will have no trouble at all with fixing concrete cracks.

Just watch this video where Leah demonstrates, step-by-step, how to use Slab to fix concrete cracks quickly.  

First, you will want to make your repair on a sunny, dry day.  The caulk takes about four hours to form a skin, and two weeks to fully cure.  Don’t worry if it rains the next day, as that won’t disturb the repair.  Also, you can walk on it after a day or so, but we advise to wait until it is fully cured to drive on it (if your repair is in a driveway).

Almost no tools are required to use the caulking. You will just need some type of blower (such as a blower used with an air compressor, or even a leaf blower) to blow the debris and dirt out of the cracks before you make the repair.

Once the crack is completely free of weeds and is clean and dry, install the backing rod (if the cracks are more than 1/2″ in depth). Next, apply the Slab caulking, and then smooth it out with a wet finger or other tool dipped in water.  

That is it!  You Can Do This!
