What are the Key Concrete Repair Products?
Specifically designed concrete repair products form the core of all concrete repair work. Without our reliable set of concrete repair products and tools, filling up pot holes in our clients’ concrete surfaces would be a much harder job, so we aim to use the best equipment possible.
Concrete Repair Mortar
Concrete repair mortars refer to specially formulated epoxies that can renew the strength of damaged concrete flooring. They are also strong enough to be suitable for long-term structural repair, strengthening the structures that they are used on (whether that is an exterior or interior surface).
What are Concrete Repair Mortars For?
A lot of concrete repair mixtures can only offer non-structural repair: cracks can be filled, but internal walls will still be weak. In accordance with most safety regulations and advice, rapid repairs with mortars are the best way to fix a potentially dangerous break.
The high quality of our concrete repair mortar allows us to use it to fill gaps while also offering proper repairs to the concrete itself, leading to rapid repairs of imperfections or damage.
Concrete Repair Resin
Concrete repair resin is similar to concrete repair mortar. While it can still fill deep holes, the resin is best used for surface repairs: we can quickly fill cracks and holes, resurfacing and smoothing the structure while also boosting its waterproofing and crack resistance.

What are Concrete Repair Resin For?
These concrete resins are often weaker than concrete repair mortar but work well for a range of fine cracks, damaged driveways, vertical splits and replacing the surfaces of damp areas. The mix is ideal for keeping a site coated and smooth, repairing any exterior damage quickly.
Concrete Repair Kit
In some cases, our customers require a full-scale concrete repair kit. These kits are suitable for a range of structural and non-structural repair, using multiple stages to create a full repair mortar that can fix most forms of damage.
A lot of these are simple kits that only have to be mixed (after you add water) to create high-quality mortar. However, with such a large range in stock, all of them can be distinctly different. In many cases, one application is enough to repair brick and concrete damage, both interior and exterior.
What are Concrete Repair Kits For?
The benefits of a full repair mortar kit mean that concrete flooring and walls can get quick, in-depth repairs very reliably. Some kits may be dedicated to certain things, like driveways or paths, but they are all suitable for good-quality repair work.
Can you use epoxy to repair concrete?
Epoxy resin is one of the most common methods of repairs for concrete and brick surfaces, usually for floor cracks and holes. In industrial settings, epoxy is often used on walkways or high-traffic floor areas, especially in exterior locations.
Epoxy resin on its own is generally used to seal and waterproof a surface, filling each crack without acting like a full cement alternative. This means that it can be ideal for resurfacing an area, especially concrete slabs or vertical surfaces that might have taken damage recently.
Does Epoxy Fully Repair Damaged Concrete?
Epoxy is more of a waterproofing and protective measure, filling a crack or hiding minor damage. It can be used for many types of concrete damage, but is often a faster and more convenient way to patch up a hole or crack easily before it can present any further damage risks.
For full repairs, something like a full concrete repair mortar is better – this sometimes takes longer to prepare and apply but can reinforce a damaged space.
Other Things to Consider
Concrete repair is not as simple as looking at contractors or picking up some crack-filing epoxy. There can be a lot to consider before you get to work.
At Concrete Repair, we can assist you on the best specifications, costs and prices. Make sure you contact us today for a number of great Concrete Repair services in Banners Gate.
Warehouse Concrete Flooring Repairs
A warehouse floor is usually either concrete or concrete with epoxy resin on top. Regular concrete should be repaired, then resurfacing should be done with a stronger and safer epoxy. Concrete that already has epoxy should hopefully only crack at the epoxy first, which makes resurfacing even easier.
‘Concrete Cancer’ occurs when steel, iron or a similar metal mesh begins to corrode, which can start to release carbonic acid. This acid corrodes concrete, often flowing down in a vertical line and leaving a big crack wherever it goes.
Can It Be Fixed?
We can fix concrete cancer, especially if you notice it and call for a rapid response before it develops too far. Get in touch and let us know what you need if your concrete begins to corrode unexpectedly.
Expansion joints are a common problem while working with concrete. They absorb the expansion caused by changing temperatures, among other things, but damage can often lead to them failing to work properly.
If these are damaged, we can offer advice, tips, and the necessary action to repair them ourselves.
Cold Joints in Concrete Flooring
Cold joints are cases where concrete has been layered on top of other concrete. This can look like a crack, but a cold join is not bad at all. In England, many long-term projects use this method to produce stronger concrete bases, so there is no need to apply repair mortar.
Self Levelling Concrete Flooring Repair
Self-levelling walkways and floor spaces are good at smoothing themselves. However, if they are damaged, that smoothing gets compromised since the set concrete can’t flow after it hardens.
We can provide all of the expertise that you would need to get self-levelling and smoothing concrete fixed, including the delivery and application of an exact high-quality repair mix that will allow for rapid repairs.
Concrete Repair Costs
Concrete resurfacing will usually cost £6 per square foot, this roughly translates to around £70 per metre. However if you want stamped concrete instead your price will jump to between £5 and £15, or £55 and £165 per square foot.
Remember that most concrete repair costs involve VAT. Prices that ex. VAT entirely aren’t really an option, but prices listed as ex. VAT will be lower than the actual cost without ex. VAT.
This can seem complicated, but keep two things in mind:
- When a price is listed with “ex. VAT”, it means that the VAT isn’t added. UK VAT is currently 20%, so ex. VAT prices are 80% of the original price. Calculating the price without ex. VAT can be easy if you know the right method.
- We can offer you the non-ex. VAT price if you need it. Simply ask about the ex. VAT price and we can tell you the price without ex. VAT, making it easier for both sides to understand what’s being paid.
Not all categories of repair mortar will be in stock, no matter where you search. Be sure that you search for the right product, and check your search terms if you can’t find a particular brand. Alternatively, instead of doing a search, order online or get in touch and ask us if we can help.
Our experts can tell you all about some of the better epoxy and mortar options, so talk to us if you’re still stuck with deciding which ones are worth using.
What is concrete spalling repair?
A concrete spalling repair can be completed in many different ways depending on the level of damage. The location and type of concrete structure will also be a factor in the repair. Spalling repairs are done initially by cleaning the spalled area. After this process any loose concrete should be removed, after the loose concrete has been removed the corroded steel bars must be cleaned and coated.
After doing this you must apply the repair mixture material, the concrete will then need to be cured to provide added strength and durability. Finally the area needs to be coated in a waterproof membrane or paint to avoid future spalling.
Can cracked concrete be levelled?
In a lot cases yes, you can avoid concrete replacement with polyjacking. This is an innovative method that can level concrete while improving the aesthetic of your home or business.
What is the Polyjacking Process?
Our repair and concrete levelling process is very simple and mess-free. Through our innovative polyjacking method, we drill small holes in the concrete and then inject polyurethane foam to lift and flatten the area. The foam will expand, penetrating any voids as we monitor and prevent any possible over raising.
What are the benefits of Polyfoam?
There are many benefits to using polyfoam including:
- Faster results, once the polyfoam has expanded, the surface is then ready to use.
- Polyfoam is durable, the lightweight material will never lose density and will not weigh down the soil, causing settling over time.
- Polyjacking is cost-efficient, saving you up to 33% by avoiding any replacements.
Are concrete floors prone to cracking?
This is a common concern when installing a concrete floor as there are fears that heavy vehicles could lead to cracking. Unfortunately there is no guarantee that your floor will remain crack free for its entire lifetime, even though the majority of cracks are superficial and wont actually effect the integrity of your floor.
How long does it take to install a concrete floor?
The time would vastly depend on the size of your project, we always aim to complete our floors or repairs as soon as possible without compromising our high standards for quality. We do this so the installation process causes minimum disruption to your business, home or site.
How much is a Epoxy repair?
As each epoxy repair has unique factors to take into account, its hard to quote an exact cost per square metre for epoxy flooring. In general an epoxy repair project would cost from around £20/m2 for an epoxy coating, up to £150 p/m2 for a metallic epoxy with some build up.
