Cracks in the Lightweight Concrete Flooring

 

Many of the apartment communities build in the last 30 years in the Sacramento Region have a layer of lightweight concrete over the sub-flooring on the second story. This concrete usually will provide a solid surface to will last a very long time.

 

In some cases there may be movement in the framing below the concrete, this can lead to cracking. Since the concrete is covered with flooring material, this is not always detected early. We have noticed that the flooring will have a “bounce” to it, this movement should be followed up.

 

You may want to contact a local contractor to help with your lightweight concrete problems in the Sacramento area.

How is the bounce corrected Tom?  Does filling the cracks before adding flooring take care of the bounce?

Good morning Tom. I'm sure by the time you are done, there will be not more cracks, a level floor and ready for floor covering.
