What causes sinking concrete slabs? – High temperatures and lack of rainfall can affect the integrity of your home and the concrete around it. When moisture evaporates from the soil, it contracts and shrinks. Rainfall will eventually flood and expand the soil and potentially wash some of it away. This cycle will cause the concrete to sink over time.
Sunken concrete can crack, pit, and hold pooling water, decreasing the curb appeal of your home. More importantly, uneven concrete slabs are a trip hazard for anyone visiting your home and can leave you liable for any injuries associated.
What can you do to fix it? – Common repairs for sunken concrete slabs include mud jacking or concrete replacement. These are invasive and expensive solutions that often do not hold up over time.
BQ Basements & Concrete offers a practical and permanent solution called PolyRenewal that will level your concrete without damaging your landscaping. PolyRenewal is a high-density polyurethane foam that is injected underneath the concrete to fill the voids and level the slab.
It is important to get areas of concern looked at before they become a bigger problem. The experts at BQ Basements & Concrete can help inspect and repair any concrete issues that may concern you.
