Expansion Joints

Expansion joints are critical to infrastructure. They literally serve as structural cartilage, allowing the structure to absorb movement and changes in temperature. Before expansion joints were introduced into the construction industry, infrastructure was left to simply crack and deteriorate.

Mid Thumb Contracting Group has installed hundreds of expansion joint projects over the past 20 years and is often called upon to provide expertise in the most complex cases.

Mid Thumb Contracting Group is able to complete even the most difficult installation or repair expansion joint project. It is highly critical for expansion joints to operate correctly. Our expansion joints are manufactured to the highest standards allowing traffic to continuously flow between structures while allowing for motion, temperature variations, shrinkage, and expansion.

Installing or replacing expansion joints can be a difficult process without the right technical expertise and experience.

Mid Thumb Contracting Group – Committed to Technical Expertise, Project Delivery, and Safety

Expansion joints can reach failure for several different reasons. Multiple factors can cause the joint to become damaged or fail, leading to infrastructure issues and possible disaster. When repairing expansion joints, it is important to diagnose the root cause of the failure to properly mitigate and avoid future occurrences. Expansion joint failure typically occurs as a result of:

  • Incorrect joint system installed
  • Excessive loads / traffic exposure
  • Improper installation
  • Poor maintenance
  • Excessive structural movement

These examples are a small cross-section of what may cause expansion joint problems. At Mid Thumb Contracting Group, our technicians take pride in solving the most complex joint expansion projects, making sure the project results in long-term effectiveness and value.
