CONCRETE LEVELING

Raise & Repair Existing Concrete

Homeowners may be surprised to find out that they may not need to completely replace their cracked and sinking concrete. There is an alternative solution that ConcreTechs can offer.

WHAT IS CONCRETE LEVELING?

By drilling small holes in your sinking concrete, and injecting polyurethane foam, we can raise and level it to be even.

 

Advantages

  • Lightweight solution will not add weight to existing soil

  • Environmentally friendly solution does not degrade

  • Waterproof material will not wash out

  • High capacity allows for lifting of heavy loads

  • Minimal disruption to  existing concrete

 

REASONS TO RAISE YOUR SLAB

Trip hazards can harm you and your family, and allows your property to be open for unwanted liability.

SAFETY

You can raise your concrete for less than half the price of replacing the concrete slab.

COST

Your slab problem will only worsen in time, fix it now and avoid the hassle later. Raising concrete with poly foam often takes a couple of hours and is ready immediately upon completion.

TIME

Structural cracks and cosmetic eyesores can be the result of uneven concrete.

APPEARANCE

Trying to sell your home? A good first impression is everything to a home buyer.

HOME VALUE

When a concrete slab settles, consequently doors and windows stick and structures connected to the slab may crack and settle as well.

STRUCTURAL DAMAGE

Water follows the path of least resistance and a settled or sunken driveway may end up costing a homeowner more money over time in foundation repairs.

WATER DAMAGE

By raising your concrete you are saving your current slab from being torn out and deposited at a landfill.

WHY DOES CONCRETE SETTLE?

POOR SOIL CONDITIONS

Clay-rich soils are ‘elastic.’ They expand and contract with moisture content. As soils become saturated with water, the clay expands and loses strength. This condition allows slabs to sink just like standing in wet mud.

INEFFECTIVE COMPACTION

Many homes are built on back filled soils. If the soil is not compacted correctly, back fill will slowly and unevenly compact, sometimes over a period of a year, allowing slabs to settle and become uneven or  crack.

TREE
ROOTS

Trees and large shrubs can consume up to 30 gallons of water a day. If located near concrete, the loss of water in the soil will make the soil contract and can cause the slabs to settle.

IMPROPER
DRAINAGE

Poor drainage can cause soil instability by creating areas of saturated soils allowing the slabs to settle. Poor drainage can be typical to the area, or as minor as a misplaced down spout.
