When soil and roots beneath a concrete driveway, sidewalk, or patio start to negatively impact the visible surface, you might see cracks and unevenness. Another red flag is sagging concrete, which can develop over time. The best way to address this kind of damage is with concrete lifting & leveling. It can fix the damage much of the time, but if not done properly, the slab may need to be replaced.
Why is concrete repair so important?
- For safety reasons: If your concrete surface is not level, people could easily trip, fall, and become injured. The uneven surfaces can snag bicycle, scooter, and roller skate wheels. It can also be annoying to drive over it, and could damage your car or truck’s tires.
- For aesthetics: No one wants to spend time on a sagging outdoor cement patio. Cement damage can also be hard on your landscaping.
What’s the Best Method for Concrete Lifting & Leveling?
You may think that the best way to do this is to break up the concrete, but there is a much easier way called poly-leveling. Small holes are drilled into the concrete at certain points and filled with polyurethane foam. As it expands, the gaps are filled in and the concrete levels out. It works like magic and dries in 60 minutes – the concrete will change dramatically, and the results can last for up to 10 years. Poly-leveling can also be used for swimming pools, basements, and garage floors.
