How Slabjacking Can Salvage Your Sunken Concrete Slab, Pond Creek, Kentucky

Sometimes, after the concrete has been laid, the earth beneath it settles, and the concrete slab sinks out of alignment with the rest of the walk, patio, or garage floor. This not only looks unattractive, but it poses a trip-and-fall hazard that could lead to liability problems. Rather than tear it out and replace it, Dwyer Company recommends a concrete lifting technique known as "slabjacking." Since 1973, they have been the most celebrated foundation repair and basement waterproofing company in West Chester, OH, with additional locations in Lexington and Louisville, KY.

What Is Slabjacking?

slabjackingSlabjacking is an easy, efficient concrete lifting technique, which fixes a sunken concrete slab without removing it and pouring a replacement. Dwyer Company technicians drill some small holes in the concrete, fill in the void beneath the slab that caused it to settle, and lift the concrete as close to its original position as possible. Once the void is filled and the slab is back in place, workers patch and fill the holes, leaving only minor traces of the repair process.

What Are the Benefits of Slabjacking?

This type of concrete lifting method is extremely cost effective. It only costs one-half to one-third of the amount it costs to remove a slab and replace it. It’s swift, simple, and requires no excavating. It leaves no mess and does not damage landscaping. Most jobs of this type can be completed in only a few hours. It is a quick, inexpensive way to repair a sunken pool deck, house slab, front stoop, driveway, garage floor, sidewalk, or backyard patio.
