Construction Performance Guidelines
CONCRETE GARAGE FLOOR IS CRACKED
Cracks resulting from normal shrinkage are acceptable; crack width in excess of 6 mm is not acceptable.
One-Year - Work and Materials. · Cracks resulting from normal shrinkage of materials caused by drying after construction are excluded from the statutory warranty.
Cracks in excess of the acceptable condition shall be repaired.
Concrete floors naturally crack during curing due to shrinkage. Actual crack width shall be determined using a wire feeler gauge* inserted inside the crack. Where repairs are necessary, colour and/or texture of repair materials may not match the surrounding concrete. * Because it is of a manufactured, set size, an Allen Wrench/Key may be used as a wire feeler gauge.
