Are all Crack Repairs the same?

Not all Crack repairs are the same. As you can see in both before pictures, it appears as if someone just smeared dark epoxy over the crack and walked away. We run into this quite frequently. When this was first completed, it probably looked ok from a distance, however it will quickly turn into what you see, a repair that looks worse than the original crack. This is what separates Clean Image from other company’s’, as it takes knowledge and time to do it correctly. The key to proper settlement crack repairs is preparation.

Here we are at work. In the Left picture Joseph is using a diamond Dremel to remove stained material from within the crack. The importance of this is 1) Remove any dark staining material that may be translucent through the crack, and 2) Clean and prepare crack to allow proper bond and depth of epoxy material.

The picture on right is where we are stabilizing a hollow tile before repairing the crack. If you do not stabilize loose tiles, the crack repair will fail prematurely. We dill a small ¼ inch hole in stone and use a fast setting 2 part epoxy with a battery powered injection gun to force material under the tile and bond to the subfloor. Care has to be taken as not to over inject and allow the tile to raise up to high above surface plane.
Here is a close up of a level 5/5. Zoom in and you can see where it has been filled. If you were to close your eyes and run your hand over it however, you would not feel any difference. It is not a new tile.
Here is a crack repair we had repaired in the Isleworth neighborhood. We returned many times over the next 2 years for servicing other areas and the original job we did 2 years earlier still looked like the after picture. And this was an elevated foyer surrounded by wood.
