Which Types of Concrete Joints Should I Choose?

Mar. 26th 2016

Everyone loves a new slab of concrete at their home or place of work, but what happens when that new concrete starts to crack? Nothing ruins new concrete like an unsightly crack. Unfortunately, concrete cracks, however, there are ways to help prevent cracking when you pour it. By adding joints you can help prevent the concrete from breaking, especially on large slabs.

There are several types of joints you can use when you pour new concrete in Vancouver WA that can make a big difference. These joints include contraction joints (or control joints), construction joints and expansion joints. So what are the differences and which one is best?

Contraction joints are cut into the concrete in certain locations about 24 hours after the concrete is poured. These are designed to control where the cracking takes place, instead of having random cracks showing up all over the surface.

Construction joints are made both before and after the concrete has been placed and they are sometimes used as contraction or expansion joints later on. Lastly, expansion joints are used to prevent distortion and crushing of concrete. Which type of joint you choose is often a matter of personal preference, but no matter which type of joint you select, it is always a good idea to use sealant for any concrete structure and its joints.
