Prevention makes the cure
The term "restraint" means that the concrete element, whether it’s a concrete slab, concrete wall, or concrete foundation, is not being allowed to shrink freely as it dries or to expand and contract with temperature changes, or to settle. Concrete expansion joints allow one concrete element to move independently from other parts of the building or structure. This allows concrete to shrink as it dries, preventing internal restraint, which means less probability of cracking. The Basement Crack Doctor would be happy to demonstrate this principle or explain it further. Just give us a call in Chesterfield, MO.
Healthy Home = Happy Home
The Basement Crack Doctor utilizes three main types of concrete expansion joints in the course of our work. These are:
- Isolation joints, which can also function as expansion joints
- Construction joints, which can also function as contraction joints
- Contraction joints, also known as control joints
One or all may be used to complete your concrete repair job depending on the depth, length, and age of your concrete crack. Call today in Chesterfield, MO, for an on-property repair estimate.

Knowing costs you nothing
When considering any driveway, basement, or foundation concrete crack repair job, naturally, your first instinct is to ask how much it will cost. That depends on a few factors, but at The Basement Crack Doctor, one thing is a certainty: your initial estimate will always be free, and will never come with high-pressure scare tactics. Ask about our current crack repair special, one crack for $375, or two for $500.
