Control & Expansion Joints
About this Service:
Control joints are cut into concrete slabs to control the direction and location of cracking. As concrete cures, it begins to shrink causing tension and pressure, which will cause cracking as it settles. Controlled and consistent cuts in the concrete allow for cracks to occur below the finished surface, resulting in an aesthetically pleasing design.
Expansion joints are typically cut all the way through the concrete and the gap is filled with a formative substance. These joints are cut so the concrete can adjust to the ground shifting, and temperature changes without cracking. This makes for a superior visual appearance.
We offer both cutting services with the option for laser guidance for precision, creating the straightest parallel cuts possible.
