Kingsport, Bristol, and Johnson City TN
Concrete sinks and becomes uneven for a variety of reasons. Often, it is far more economical to repair or lift concrete than to replace it entirely. Repairing and leveling damaged concrete before it becomes significantly damaged means that you can prolong the life of your concrete driveway, sidewalk, or concrete slab flooring. Plus, concrete lifting in Kingsport is more convenient than replacing it.
Why Concrete Sinks
Concrete sinks when one of the following occurs:
- Soil shrinkage
- Compacted soil
- Soil Erosion
- Lack of slab support
You may benefit from concrete lifting and leveling in Kingsport if you have uneven concrete, splits or cracks, or notice that your concrete slabs or flooring are uneven. Failing to repair damaged or uneven concrete could result in injury, especially when others enter your property. Avoid a potential injury or lawsuit on your hands by ensuring your concrete is even.
How to Fix Uneven Concrete
At Top Notch Raising, we provide a solution to your uneven concrete so that you can enjoy your outdoor (or indoor) space without worrying about dealing with the risks and hazards of damaged concrete. When you look to hire a professional concrete repair company, it is essential to choose one that offers the best solution.
Traditional concrete lifting involves mudjacking, also known as slab jacking, which adds concrete slurry underneath the existing slab in efforts to lift the top surface, hoping that the underlying soil will remain steady and support the structure.
Top Notch Raising recommends avoiding this solution because if the ground under your concrete is already experiencing settling issues, adding more concrete may make it worse.
Instead, we use a better, proven method to even your concrete by injecting a professional grade geotechnical polyurethane foam to lift and stabilize uneven concrete. This cost-effective solution does not involve excavating and can be injected directly into the area that needs lifting. Since the material is light weight, it will helps solidify loose, uncompacted soil for stabilization. Once injected, the polymer expands and sets within minutes, creating stability in areas where the soil is weak or eroded.
