Concrete surfaces are susceptible to the pressure and shifting of the underlying soil that supports your slabs. Constant, heavy use and weather damage also take their toll on your concrete. If your concrete slab needs leveling, the concrete raising team at Lexington’s United Structural Systems can help.
Our experts will perform a complete inspection of the concrete and surrounding soil. After that is complete, our Lexington-based concrete leveling service team will give you a repair recommendation customized for your property and particular situation.
Why do I need concrete leveling?
Environmental factors can damage any concrete surface over time. Often, those external impacts cause concrete slabs to shift, which causes them to become uneven or to develop large cracks. Uneven concrete is not only unsightly, it also poses a significant tripping hazard. Addressing uneven concrete is critical, specifically if the area gets frequent bike or pedestrian traffic. You want to remove any tripping hazards as soon as possible to restore the safety and integrity of the concrete.
Uneven concrete surfaces can occur anywhere there is a concrete slab. Some common places you may find them are:
- Porches and patios
- Pool decks
- Parking Lots
Quite often, the cause of your uneven concrete is not due to issues with the slab itself. Weak soil, intrusion of tree roots, and erosion all can have a hand in damaging concrete. When the underlying soil is disturbed too much, voids can appear. Those weaken the area until it can no longer support the concrete above. Our Lexington concrete leveling service experts use an expanding polyurethane foam which they inject beneath your concrete. The expansion of the foam lifts your concrete back in place, and cures in about 15 minutes, ready for immediate duty.
