Fix Uneven Concrete With Concrete Leveling

Nov 14

Uneven concrete is not only unsightly, it can also be dangerous for pedestrians and vehicles. Luckily, it’s also easy to fix with Experienced Concrete Levelers, a process that involves injecting a special material under the sunken concrete to raise and level it. Whether you need sidewalk leveling, driveway leveling, or patio leveling, concrete lifting can provide an affordable solution to uneven concrete that will last for years to come.

There are several reasons that a concrete slab can sink or become uneven. Sometimes, erosion of the soil underneath a slab can wash away the dirt that holds it up, causing the slab to sink into the voids created. In other cases, the soil can expand and contract over time, causing the slab to move up or down. Whatever the cause, it’s important to address these problems as soon as they arise.

If left untreated, the sinking concrete can worsen over time, leading to cracks in your driveway, walkway, or patio that could create a safety hazard for your family and guests. While you may be tempted to replace the entire slab, this can be very expensive and disruptive. Fortunately, concrete leveling can be performed at a fraction of the cost and in a much shorter period of time than replacement.

Mudjacking and polyurethane foam injection are the two main methods for raising sunken concrete. Mudjacking uses a mud mixture to lift the slab, while polyurethane foam injection uses a lightweight polymer to fill and lift the slab. Both processes involve drilling holes into the sunken concrete and then injecting a material to raise it. The holes are then patched.

While mudjacking is often the preferred method for repairing sunken concrete, it has several drawbacks. First, mudjacking is very messy. A lot of equipment and vehicles are needed to pump the mud slurry under the slab, and a lot of cleanup is required afterwards. Additionally, the mudjacking slurry is not waterproof and will wash away after it rains, bringing the slab back to where it started.

Despite the drawbacks of mudjacking, it is still a common method for many homeowners and business owners. The good news is that there is a better alternative: concrete leveling with polyurethane. Polyurethane is a much lighter and more durable material than cement, making it the ideal choice for raising and leveling concrete. Plus, polyurethane is waterproof and will not wash away after it rains, keeping your concrete surfaces safe from further damage.

Unlike mudjacking, concrete leveling with polyurethane takes less time to perform and is less disruptive to your home or business. It also doesn’t produce any waste by removing and replacing the existing concrete, making it a more environmentally friendly option.
