"After moving in to our new home, we found a crack in the foundation upon inspection. It looked like it had once been pasted over with concrete but not properly grinded/filled. It was beginning to crack again. Jeremy showed up on-time and was able to diagnose and fix on the spot without a second visit. He grinded out the poor concrete job and filled it with hydraulic cement. He then sealed it with a rubber compound and went on his way. There was little to no effort on my part and Jeremy was a pleasure to deal with."

A cold joint can also exist when pouring of a concrete foundation and theirs an interruption or delay, already poured concrete is setting up faster than when they can continue to pour new concrete. Causing a cold joint in the foundation. Whenever patching a hole in concrete with new concrete there will always be an existing cold joint.
