Concrete Mapping Cracks

Angelo Montinola asked 10 years ago

Why is it that when concrete is not yet fully cured and applied with paint it causes mapping cracks? And what is the remedy?

The paint/coating is trapping moisture and not allowing for a proper cure of the concrete. Never apply a floor coating to fresh concrete, wait a minimum of 30 days.

There is no way to easily fix it. After removing the coating a skim coat of some kind of concrete patch will have to be applied to cover up the cracks. I recommend contacting a concrete contractor for the best advise and repair options.
