When you have a concrete slab out of place, concrete leveling can be a cost-effective way to improve the appearance and walkability of the surface without doing a total repair job. When a sidewalk, step, garage floor, patio, parking lot, or driveway has areas that are not level, it can present tripping hazards that lead to injury and costly liability claims. In addition, the raised areas are unsightly and can make a property appear as if you are ignoring maintenance issues.
The process of concrete leveling fills voids under the concrete with a mixture of cement and mud or polyurethane foam. The process is quick and easy in the hands of a professional, who can do it for a fraction of the cost of replacing concrete. A company who specializes in this process drills a series of small holes that they plug with the grout or foam, filling the void and stabilizing the soil underneath the slab so that it is level. Often costing just a few hundred dollars (based on it costing $2-$5 per square foot), the resulting repair may not look brand-new, but it will extend the life of concrete indefinitely.
When is concrete leveling an appropriate process? As long as the concrete has not broken down into pieces, mud jacking or foam jacking can solve the problem. Professionals recommend that if there is an unevenness of one half inch or more, calling professional concrete lifters is a good idea.
