Concrete Raising and Repair

Concrete Troubles?

Is water pooling in a particular spot on your sidewalk or driveway? Are you tripping in the same spot repeatedly? Always missing that last step out of your house? Chances are, you are not a klutz. Instead, these may be signs that your concrete has sunk. But why would your concrete sink and should you fix it or ignore it?

Great questions! There are a variety of factors that can cause your concrete to sink. The two primary reasons are:

  • Climate—Maryland weather can wreak havoc on your concrete. Changing weather causes concrete to constantly expand and contract, eventually leading to a shifting of the ground below the driveway, sidewalks and surrounding the foundation.
  • Erosion—Over time, excessive rain, damaged water and sewer lines, and improperly placed downspouts can erode the soil under your concrete and wash it away, leaving a gap and causing the concrete to sink.

As a result, uneven, sunken concrete slabs can cause safety issues, damage vehicle tires, and look unappealing. For these reasons, it’s best to fix the damaged areas than forget about them.

Concrete Raising: The Perfect Solution

At DeVere Home Performance, we offer concrete raising and leveling, a quick and environmentally friendly solution for fixing your sunken concrete. The process of raising concrete slabs is straightforward and simple:

  1. Drill: Holes the size of a dime are strategically drilled around the areas where your concrete has sunk and requires lifting.
  2. Pump: Polyurethane concrete raising foam is injected into the holes where it expands and fills in the uneven space under the slab.
  3. Patch: The holes are patched with new cement.

Benefits of Concrete Raising

Our expert concrete raising services will remove trip hazards, create standard steps, re-pitch slabs for proper drainage, stabilize slabs that move, and support slabs after washout. As a result, not only will your home’s concrete areas be lifted and repaired but your spirits will be lifted as well when you see the results.

Creating a safer and more stable concrete surface is a huge benefit of undergoing concrete raising, but there are many other benefits to enjoy including:

  • Cost Effectiveness: The cost of raising concrete is about half the cost of replacing concrete, making it a viable option for many homeowners.
  • Time: The entire process of raising a concrete slab takes about two hours and is ready to use immediately. Your home will be party ready in no time.
  • Clean Work Environment: There is no concrete or grout splatter, no wash down needed, and no heavy equipment to drive through your prized landscaping. Your flowers and bushes will thank you.
  • Smaller Holes: The holes used in raising concrete slabs are only the size of a dime (5/8”) and there are far fewer holes drilled than with traditional mud jacking, making it a convenient and hassle-free choice.
  • Long-lasting: The polyurethane concrete raising foam will never lose density and is a lightweight, permanent material. You can fix it and forget it.
