Pouring concrete over existing slab

In reply to concrete cracks by Rob Dykeman on March 26th, 1999 08:22 PM [Go to top of thread]

The guy who poured the concrete came out and made
expansion joints using a wet saw. Then took a dry saw
and went over the cracks to make them a little wider.
Then the next step is to fill the cracks with epoxy
gel. We live in central Florida (fairly mild climate).
I'm am not convinced this is the correct method for
solving this problem because in one section there is
movement in the concrete. The concrete guy says
this will be resolved with the epoxy. How long is
a solution like this going to last? A tile floor
covering, if done properly should last for fifty
years. Any comments would be appreciated.
