    Bacteria Healing Cracks In Concrete

    We like to use this blog to share interesting stuff that we’ve discovered. So, let us introduce you to some very interesting bacteria…

    It’s a type of bacteria which feeds off water and other substances, and excretes a form of limestone. By incorporating these bacteria into concrete mix, scientists believe that they could create a concrete which heals itself when it cracks. The idea being that as cracks open up in concrete, the bacteria would become activated, and would quickly seal up the gaps with their natural limestone. This article has a lot more information about the bacteria.

    Cracks in concrete are unavoidable; it’s part of the nature of concrete to crack in certain places. A good pattern imprinted concrete driveway installation firm, like Complete Driveway Designs, know how to position crack control joints in order to minimise cracking. That’s one of the secrets of a high quality, long-lasting pattern imprinted concrete driveway.

    If there are cracks in your driveway, you’re best off contracting a firm who can patch or resurface your drive. Resurfacing is the ideal solution, as a patch will never exactly match the original colour of your pattern imprinted concrete driveway. However, patching is an option, depending on the position of the crack on your driveway.
