Cracked, sunken, and uneven concrete is one of the many dilemmas a homeowner may encounter, but luckily, the problem is easy to pinpoint and prevent. Extremely wet or dry weather, soil washout, incorrect grading, and an improper laying of concrete can all contribute this problem, and if neglected, may negatively impact your home’s foundation.
A concrete leveling expert will be able to identify the source and address the issue. Installers use synthetic or mortar-based material to fill any gaps under the concrete to lift and level the collapsing area. Once the holes used to inject the liquid are sealed, the process is complete, and your driveway, sidewalk, or concrete patio will look like it did when it was first installed.
After correcting the issue, preventative measures like cleaning your gutters no less than twice a year, and occasionally sealing the concrete to protect against water damage, will help keep it intact. Of course, the best method for preventing damage is proper installation performed by a highly trained professional. For more information, contact a Best Pick Concrete Leveling/Mudjacking expert today!
