This is most important, as it helps reduce and control the incidence of cracking. Most cracks are formed within the first 24 hours of the concrete being placed but only become noticeable at a later date.

• Saw Cutting
• Aluminum Strips
• Rubber Foam
Sometimes the clever use of pavers or bricks can disguise the crack control joint.
