Joint Sealing Canberra
Joint Sealing Canberra
When large volumes of concrete are used for building or flooring they need to have joints included to allow for expansion and contraction as well as movement.
Movement occurs in concrete because of the initial shrinkage that is caused by thermal induced cyclic movements. This occurs with any ambient temperature variations and changes in moisture levels. For all concreting jobs, this means that expansion joints will need to be cut into the concrete and around any plinths or pedestals too.
Expansion and contraction will cause the concrete to crack so expansion joints need to be cut into the concrete to allow for this to occur. When the concrete is scored in this manner it allows for the control of the cracking along these lines instead of randomly through the concrete.
Concrete slab joints are then later sealed to prevent unwanted and foreign materials from getting into these cracks, while still allowing for movement to occur. Joint sealing also prevents the ingress of water and chemicals that could cause increased damage to the crack and lead to wider problems occurring.
