Q I have a concrete parking lot that has several cracks in each slab. Some areas have small cracks, while others have opened up substantially. The slabs that have opened up too much will have to be replaced. Is there a product or process that we can use to keep the smaller cracks from opening up farther and breaking up the concrete beyond repair?
