Residential Concrete Lift & Levelling

Polyurethane concrete raising is the perfect substitute for conventional mudjacking. Using polyurethane over replacing your concrete comes with various advantages and will save you time and money, often saving homeowners more than 50% of the cost to replace! We regularly consult with homeowners on whether they should repair their concrete or replace it. Many are delighted to learn that their concrete can be perfectly aligned and ready to use that same day, in a matter of a few hours or even minutes.

Homeowners often have questions on cost and timing. Replacement and repair will always cost far more than maintenance. It is important to keep this in mind. Concrete is no different than changing the oil in your car; oil changes are affordable, repairs are costly, and replacement is expensive. So, when you start to see a small crack, do not wait until it is so big that it is no longer repairable. Just like when a driveway or sidewalk begins to tilt towards the foundation, why wait for the water to leak into your basement before getting it fixed? If water is pooling beside the foundation, address the slope immediately.  
Another frequent question that homeowners have is why their concrete settled in the first place. One common reason is poor compaction when the home was built. The “chunks” of soil would be much larger if the ground was wet or frozen when the foundation was backfilled than if it were done with sand. In drier years, these “chunks” can be broken down by trees or vegetation that dry them out and cause the foundation to settle where it was initially excavated. When this happens, the soil will settle and form voids underneath the concrete, which reduces the slab’s support.
The size of the steel dowels is another reason as to why concrete will settle. Normally, a dowel (a short piece of rebar) is spaced at roughly 16 to 24 inches. The dowel is inserted into a drilled hole in the foundation, where one end is tied to the rebar in the concrete slab. Sometimes these dowels will pull out of the foundation if the holes for them were not drilled at the proper angle, are not far enough into the foundation, or are too big. Dowels may also rust through or be too small to support the weight.  Ultimately, there are only benefits in contacting us at Ground Level Solutions for an estimate, as we can guide homeowners to solutions that will save them money either now or further into the future.
