Patio Concrete Levelling

Concrete Levelling Patios

Concrete patios are a trouble area that often depend on concrete levelling to fix settling soil. When water runs towards the home, it saturates the soil near the foundation, and the clay beneath the topsoil stops this water from seeping deep into the ground.

As a result, the standing water may soak into the wall of the basement and cause damage. During the winter, the water-saturated ground will freeze, increasing pressure against the foundation. You can avoid cost of repairs by raising the concrete pad, which will push water away from home. 

A patio will generally sink towards the home when it settles, causing the outer edge to be pushed upward, creating a teetering effect. This can lead to poor drainage or cracks in the foundation.
