I recently had this decorative curbing put in my yard.
A month later, the neighbors had a fence installed, and the installers
cracked it in one place, plus put many chips in the cement.
This pattern was poured with a mold. The guy who poured it left the
area. The fence company is trying to find someone to repair it.
Does anyone know if a split piece of concrete can be re-sealed properly,
or does it need to be completely re-done?
Sounds like Kwik Kerb, an Australian innovation which sells exclusively
by franchised installers.
The sales material we were sent locally (unsolicited) seemed really
cheesy, although we vaguely knew the franchisees (who aren't the type to
disappear). The product itself seemed nice, but I haven't seen it close up.
Concrete repair, per se, should be relatively simple, but even in the
world of bog-standard grey driveways, it's hard to get an exact color
match. That's probably your real problem. How big are the dings? Could
you live with a repair that looks like a repair from less than ten feet
away? I imagine taht people who like the super-neat Kwik Kerb look in
the first place aren't the type who want a variegated garden edging.
Thanks so much for the info. The nicks are not too bad, but the one
area, as I mentioned is completely split in half. I am not too worried
about the color discrepancy as I won't see it as much as my neighbors
(I have arborvitaes on most of my side), and luckily, it is on the
backyard side which is an empty field.
This curbing you referred me to is alot like it, but mine is just one
solid piece of concrete, no little squares to make a pattern.
I just hope they can repair it, without taking the entire thing out and
pouring a new mold.
