Concrete Raising in Canistota

Over the years, as rain and melting snow soak into the soil it will expand and contract. As this ground shifts and settles, open pockets can be formed. The slab can settle into these voids and eventually form cracks in slabs or spaces between slabs.

Why Is My Concrete Settling?

There are a number of reasons and situations that can facilitate the settling of concrete slabs. These could include major changes in the moisture content of the soil from wet weather or a longer period of dry weather causing the soil to become drained of moisture and contract.

Moisture Levels

The moisture content in your soil will change over time, it will cause the concrete slab on the soil to become uneven. If the soil becomes saturated due to lack of drainage, this moisture will cause the earth to become weak and no longer be able to support the concrete.

Soil Shrinkage

If the weather is hot and dry for long periods of time, it will cause soil shrinkage. As the soil loses moisture, it will make cavities form below your concrete. As time progresses, these holes prevent proper support and put unnecessary stress on the concrete slab and will ultimately cause it to crack.

Improper Compaction

During construction, the soil has to be removed and replaced. Once this is completed it is necessary that it is replaced to the original density as when it was taken out. If the soil is not properly compacted, it can rapidly speed up the forming of voids under the slab poured above. These holes will put undue stress on the concrete and cause sinking over time.

Where Our Team Can Level Concrete

Any time there is earth supporting your concrete, there is the danger of needing concrete leveling. These are the main areas that we've seen both commercial and residential property owners needing our services:

The Solution: Polyjacking

The best alternative to removing and replacing your cracked or settling concrete is polyjacking.

A relatively new advancement that makes use of expanding polyurethane foam to raise and repair these damaged slabs back to their intended position. Historically a method called mudjacking has been used to perform this same procedure. The advantage that polyjacking has over mudjacking is the polyurethane foam quickly expands to fill the cavity and harden to permanently restore the concrete in position.
