Understanding 3 Advantages of Concrete Lifting, Pond Creek, Kentucky

When you notice your concrete has become sunken or damaged, you’re faced with two options for repair. You can have a specialist remove the slab and pour new concrete, or you can opt for what’s known as concrete lifting. As long as you work with a top-notch concrete repair crew, concrete lifting is a vastly superior method.

Here are three key benefits of concrete lifting: 

  • Lower Cost: Concrete lifting works by drilling small holes in the problematic slab and then, injecting materials to raise it to an even grade. Since the whole process is faster, requires less labor, and has no need for new concrete, the final bill will be less than the cost of pouring.
  • concrete-liftingSpeedy Service: When you hire a skilled crew, you can expect your concrete lifting to be completed in an hour or two. A concrete pouring, however, will take more equipment, require a longer setup time, and most crucially, you’ll have to wait several days before the concrete has dried and been cured. To lower the disruption of the repair, it’s wise to go with a concrete lifting. 
  • Better Aesthetics: While laying new concrete to replace a broken slab will leave a beautiful new surface, the contrast will look awkward next to the rest of your older concrete. Since a concrete lifting simply elevates the damaged area, the concrete will retain its cohesion — no one will ever even notice work was performed.
