Concrete curbing and walkways – just like any other concrete product – can and will crack
over time. We experience very little cracking in our products. We try to avoid this as much
as possible by mixing fiber mesh into our concrete to add structural strength to the
concrete itself. Still, in our climate that freezes and thaws yearly, tree roots may lift,
the ground may shift, etc., which can lead to cracking. In an effort to avoid this, we cut
in control joints every 2 to 3 feet. This is designed to give the curb a controlled cracking
point and not be noticeable.
