IMO I would try and see what they say when you bring it to their attention. If they refuse then go from there.

Crack in concrete 2 days after pouring?


As Tscar noted, it's not a shrinkage crack, but more of an "oops" crack that was created by a human. It could be anything already listed above; got stepped on, the form was removed to roughly, the soil underneath the corner is loose and gave way when someone stepped on it, etc.........


But here's my "stab in the dark": Rain came down when the concrete was somewhat wet/green yet, and the slab got overed in plastic. Either someone accidentally stepped on the corner when covering, or set too heavy of a weight on the corner. My guess is their foot caught it as they were existing the garage door trying ot step over it.

You can have them replace the entire square up to the closest control joint, but you'll have a variation in color with the rest of the slab, at least short term.

I'd see if they were willing to just grind the joint out a little, saving some of the sawdust, adhere together with epoxy (or another appropriate product) and sweep the dust over the surface to hide the adhesive. Should be the least conspicuous approach, and easy too.

Did you pay them? I'd hold onto your money until the job is done the correct way. I'm pretty sure your agreement didn't include any damaged concrete slabs.

No, we close on the house 11/01. I am contacting the contractor today and we will see what he says.
