simple concrete step question
Got a tiny--I mean REALLY fine, almost hairline--crack just starting in my precast concrete steps. I have read all about patching cracks and I'm prepared to go that route if I must, but I'm wondering since it's just getting started if a good layer of sealant will do the trick.
If anybody had mentioned to me years ago when we bought them that sealing precasts adds years to their lives, I would have been doing this all along.
BTW, this is a 19-year old set of steps and despite its age it is in otherwise pristine shape and gets scrubbed clean weekly.
Something needs to be done before winter or that crack will only worsen...will a sealant save us?
