There are many reasons why homeowners should consider levelling and repairing their concrete. One reason is to make their home safer. If you have an uneven driveway or sidewalk, it can be challenging to walk on, leading to severe accidents. Another reason to level and repair concrete is for accessibility. You'll want to make sure you can get out of your garage in the event of heavy rains. If your concrete is uneven, you might end up flooding, which could result in severe damage to your car and home. Finally, levelling concrete can be beneficial for the resale value of your house. You'll want to make sure your concrete is in good shape for selling and it makes enhanced curb appeal.
When we encounter a concrete repair or levelling problem, we often consult with our homeowners and find that they are surprised that concrete levelling is a relatively inexpensive and easy fix. Not only do we fix the problem and restore the concrete to a level and smooth surface, but we usually save them money and time.

Unlike mudjacking, a somewhat invasive concrete raising method, polyurethane concrete raising is easier and faster. The polyurethane concrete raising process uses a special pressurized polyurethane injected into the concrete slab's void space. This polyurethane is then expanded inside the void, filling it. The sinking and settling of the concrete can be halted, and the slab is returned to its original level. 
If you are getting concrete work done on your home, there are some questions you should ask before, during, and after the concrete lifting process is complete. Will the concrete work be completed on time? Is there a team of skilled professionals who know what they are doing? And, of course, how much does the job cost? Some of these concrete questions are easier to answer than others, and we will review all the answers specific to your job onsite. Sometimes, homeowners ask about what to expect during the job. It is important to remember that concrete work is an aesthetic improvement as well as a functional one. 
If you have a cracked concrete surface, you should get it repaired before it gets any worse. Injuries happen when things get worse. Injuries happen when people aren't paying attention. It's best to fix things before they get out of hand. Be proactive when it comes to maintenance. Don't let problems get out of control. If your foundation begins to crack, it is crucial to fix the problem as soon as possible so that water does not begin to penetrate and cause damage to your foundation. If you notice water pooling and rising, you should call a professional to help you fix the problem. They will want to inspect the foundation for any cracks, leaks, or other damage. Once found, they will want to start to fix the problem before the water has the chance to penetrate the foundation and cause further damage. Moisture that sits too long can damage your concrete and speed up settling the ground beneath your slab.
So, we get asked quite often, "why is my concrete settling?" If the soil were wet when the foundation was backfilled, the ground forms "chunks" of soil. These "chunks" are larger than if the home was backfilled with sand. When wet soil dries, the "chunks" of soil can shrink away from the concrete, causing "settling." Especially if the concrete were poured on bedrock, the ground would shift. Settling and shifting of concrete is more common than we'd care to admit. There are a few more reasons for shifting and settling to happen. Poor compaction when contractors originally built the home or structural settling due to temperature, rain, snow, and wind. If the soil were wet or frozen when the foundation was backfilled, the ground would form larger "chunks" of soil. These "chunks" may not break down in wetter years, but find yourself in one dry season, and the trees and vegetation can dry out the "chunks," causing settling where the foundation has initially been excavated. There are many reasons why your concrete is settling. And although we'd need to inspect the site to determine which one applies to your home, we offer free estimates.
