Concrete Leveling - A Cost-Effective Solution to Uneven Concrete

Jan 19

If you have a concrete slab that has sunken, or it's becoming uneven, you have several options for Concrete Leveling Services. One common solution is concrete leveling, which involves filling the voids under the slab to raise it back up to its original position. This is particularly effective for sidewalks, patios and porches. However, it can also lift and stabilize driveways, pool decks, garage floors and basement floors.

Uneven concrete is not only unsightly, but it can be hazardous for pedestrians and cars. It's important to get any uneven concrete repair done right away, before it gets worse. If you let the situation progress, it can lead to structural damage and expensive repairs.

While mudjacking is the most commonly used method of concrete leveling, there are other alternatives that you can consider. For example, polyurethane foam injection or stone slurry grout are also effective methods for raising uneven concrete slabs. These methods are also much more affordable than having replacement concrete poured.

There are a few things you should know before using self-leveling concrete. First, it's important to make sure there's no structural damage in the area. Also, the concrete needs to be tested for moisture levels. Moisture is normal in most concrete, but high levels can cause the leveling compound to degrade over time.

Self-leveling concrete works by shaving down the high areas of the concrete and filling in the low ones. Then, a mixture of cement and water is poured over the surface to create an even floor. It's best for smaller areas where aesthetics aren't as important, and it can be very cost-effective.

A concrete leveling contractor will drill small holes in the sunken slab at strategic locations. Then, a mixture of crushed aggregate and Portland cement is mixed with water to form a slurry consistency, which is then pumped through the holes. The slurry will fill any voids under the concrete and help to raise it up. Then, the hole will be filled with non-shrinking grout and the slab will be smoothed out.

Concrete leveling is a cost-effective alternative to replacing concrete, and it's also more environmentally friendly than excavation and replacement. Whether you have a sidewalk, patio or driveway that's become uneven, concrete leveling can be the perfect solution for resolving the problem quickly and efficiently. It's a safe and permanent solution, and it can be completed in just hours. So don't hesitate to contact us today for a free onsite estimate! And remember to ask about our warranty for peace of mind.
