Many homeowners experience sunken concrete slabs on their property, causing trip hazards, cracks, and pooling water in walkways, patios, sidewalks, and driveways. Fortunately, the The Dwyer Company specializes in concrete lifting, a form of concrete repair that can raise sunken stoops, walkways, and other concrete slabs. Some of the most common areas affected by sunken concrete slabs include pool decks, garage floors, steps, and driveways.
The misalignment often occurs for one of two reasons. Sometimes, soil beneath the concrete simply begins to erode over time as water runs through cracks and joints, causing the slabs to sink. However, it’s also possible the concrete was poured over recently back-filled soil during construction, causing the loose soil to settle and the concrete slabs to sink over time.
The Dwyer Company utilizes a special technique called slab jacking to perform concrete lifting in such cases. By drilling only a few tony holes, the slab jacking technique lifts the concrete slab back up to its original position by filling the voided spaces beneath it. Once the concrete repair is finished, workers fill and patch all of the holes so they’re not even noticeable.
Slab jacking costs significantly less than what it would cost to tear out and replace sunken concrete slabs. It also efficiently and quickly raises sunken concrete without making a mess or damaging the landscape, something many homeowners appreciate. It requires no excavating, and most projects are completely within the same day.
