Concrete crack filler - EZ Poly/RayCrete?

A two part mix. I would like to fill some concrete walkway stress joints that have separated due to tree roots.

Anyone used this? 2 quarts = $70.

Other suggestions?

Thanks

That is an expensive band-aid!

It is only as good as the bond and quality of the material it is attached to. - That is IF they do not continue to move.

Your sidewalk will continue to to move and crack unless you do something about it. The cracks will be new or between the miracle glue and the existing concrete.

If it is a trip hazard, remove the displaced slab sections and replace with new sections that are flush. You will still get some long term movement as long as the tree roots are under the sidewalk.

those cracks're now joints,,,

dick's right,,, either replace the damaged sections or seal the cracks w/backer rod & silicone,,, dow-corning's got some pdf's to show you the proper method.

never heard of your product but we buy from pro supply houses,,, don't pay anywhere near that price, tho,,, try sika's sl2 in a color you'd like.
