Why You Should Have Your Concrete Levelled Professionally

Why You Should Have Your Concrete Levelled Professionally

After years of use, concrete slabs will slowly sink due to erosion and the gradual settling of the ground below. This settling can lead to your concrete slabs becoming uneven, which causes many problems with aesthetics, functionality and safety. You might think levelling a sunken concrete slab is a DIY project; it seems simple enough, right? Concrete repair is more complex than you may think, and you could do more harm than good if you try to level sunken slabs on your own. There are many reasons to hire a professional for your concrete levelling project. Let us tell you why!

To ensure that your concrete is lifted professionally, safely, and with the best possible products and methods, it's essential to hire a professional concrete contractor. The professionals at Quattro Contracting have years of experience in lifting concrete. This knowledge allows us to use the right tools and materials for the project. We specialize in polyurethane concrete levelling, also known as slab jacking or foam jacking. Polyurethane foam is the best way to repair sunken concrete slabs, but it should be done by a professional. This method requires special equipment and a specific process to ensure that it is done correctly. One of the top reasons we suggest having your concrete lifted and levelled professionally is because the average homeowner doesn't have access to the right products or equipment. Aside from this, there are some other reasons you should hire a concrete lifting and levelling professional for the job.

Concrete lifting and levelling might seem like a quick fix, and it can be, but only if you know how to do it effectively. We don't suggest DIY concrete lifting as many things could go wrong. You could spend hours on a concrete lifting project that would take a professional a few minutes simply because you lack the right tools or experience. With our fast and effective polyurethane concrete lifting method, we can lift sunken and settled slabs back into their original position in as little as a day. For smaller jobs, the process can take just a few hours! 

When concrete levelling is done right, it can add significant value and curb appeal to your home. A properly repaired sidewalk, driveway or patio can boost curb appeal and make your home more attractive to prospective buyers. This is a great benefit if your home is in an older neighbourhood where many properties have sunken or settled sidewalks and driveways. Having your concrete slabs lifted professionally will make your home more desirable and help with resale value because polyurethane concrete lifting will help prevent further deterioration over time. 

You may think that handling concrete levelling yourself is cheaper, but the opposite is true. From purchasing or renting tools to buying materials to the time the job and the cleanup take, it would be far more cost-effective to hire a professional for the job. Our polyurethane concrete lifting method is a cost-effective solution for homeowners with sunken concrete slabs. 

If concrete is repaired incorrectly, it won't look or function the way it should. Mistakes can be expensive in terms of time, money and aesthetics. Many of the concrete lifting products you can purchase at the hardware store are not permanent solutions, meaning your slab will likely sink again and could be damaged further and end up needing to be replaced. When you hire Quattro for the job, you don't have to worry about missteps along the way. Our professionals know how to lift your sunken slabs right the first time. 

For all the concrete lifting and levelling projects we do, we get to the root of why the surface was sinking or cracking in the first place. We don't just cover up the damage; we offer long-term solutions that last. Polyurethane foam is generally a permanent solution to sunken and settled slabs. Polyurethane foam is hydrophobic and resistant to the elements, so it won't degrade over time. Polyurethane foam also helps prevent further damage to your slabs, making it the ideal solution for concrete levelling projects.
