Why Consider Concrete Repair?

Do you have a sunken or cracked concrete slab surrounding your home? In addition to not making your property look the best, it can also cause issues with people tripping and falling. This could also be a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) depending on where the cracked concrete is located. If you are suffering from concrete issues, United Structural Systems (USS) concrete repair and soil stabilization service for your Lexington property can get your slab back into shape with pressure grouting techniques. Our experts will come and provide you with a free estimate to repair your sunken or cracked concrete slab.

How Can Soil Cause Concrete to Sink?

The soil under your home’s concrete surfaces can be affected by poor compaction, water, erosion, and other factors. The soil expands and contracts in these situations over time, causing the heavy concrete surface to settle and crack because the soil can no longer support the surface. The experts at USS can utilize the pressure grouting soil stabilization techniques for your Lexington property to strengthen the area under your concrete structure, and also reduce water flow. 

Fix Your Slabs with Pressure Grouting

If your concrete slab is uneven and cracked, pressure grouting soil stabilization is an effective method of repairing these surfaces. This process, also referred to as mudjacking or slab jacking, involves drilling holes into the slab and filling that hole with grout or concrete. This stabilizes the soil and lifts the concrete slabs back into a level position.
