Best Solution For This Garage Slab Edge?


Customer had this fixed twice before, one side and then the other. He said they removed, drilled into existing slab to add rebar to stabilize the newly poured edge. Both failed as you can see. The rest of the slab does not seem to have sunk, one hairline crack, some efflorescence (or maybe salt from vehicles).

Looking for the right permanent solution. Some ideas I've heard include stabilizing with cement piers, cutting further into the slab to get joint away from the door. Need expertise, thanks!

Re: Best Solution For This Garage Slab Edge?


looks like somebody keep trying to put a bandaid on the issue
the asphalt is all busted up
maybe they should dig it out and put a proper apron on
hard to tell if the slab in the building from the pic is good?

Are you in an area subject to freeze and thaw conditions? That will wreck an area in front of a garage just like that, if not addressed properly.

It's in Minnesota, so yeah, freeze and thaw. Southern exposure. The rest of the slab looked fine. Probably 30 years old and showing typical wear for that age. One hairline crack, level, and a little salt damage from road salt on cars being brought in, nothing major.
