Concrete Lifting for Spring 2019

Concrete Lifting for Spring 2019

Now that spring is here, we’re all ready to spend a little more time outside. However, if your driveway, steps, sidewalk, patio, or garage floor is cracked and raised, it’s not very fun to be around. Plus, it could be a safety hazard for not only you and your guests but for your home! Let’s learn a little bit about the places you might need concrete lifting around your home and why it’s helpful to your home.

Fill Voids


If you have a cracked or raised driveway or garage floor, you may also have a void underneath the crack. As the floor or driveway cracks, it can also let in water which slowly erodes the concrete. This can eventually cause voids underneath the cement. These voids can cause instability and unsafe conditions for you and your family, and you may not even know they exist. While this is not the case for every single crack in the garage floor or driveway, it can be the case in certain situations. Therefore, it’s important to have a professional estimate of the crack or raised cement to determine the extent of the problem. Concrete lifting with polyurethane can resolve these issues in most cases.

Eliminate Trip Hazards

Cracked and raised concrete in the driveway, sidewalk, garage floor, or steps can be a big trip hazard, especially in the spring when people spend more time outside. If you have raised or cracked concrete, it’s time to consider that you’re putting your guests at risk. No one wants an accidental fall to happen on their property, which can be a liability to you. Save the trouble of an accidental fall and call us today for concrete lifting to eliminate these trip hazards.

Stop Flooding of Your Sidewalk and Yard

Have you noticed that your sidewalks turn into a lake when it rains and flood your yard as well? Are your sidewalks noticeably lower than the rest of the yard? If so, you might benefit from concrete lifting. This will raise up the sidewalk and allow the water to properly drain off of the sidewalk, through the grass in your yard, and into the soil. You will no longer have to walk through water to get to your front door.

Benefits of Concrete Lifting

Concrete lifting doesn’t use heavy machinery in your yard, there are minimal holes in the concrete as compared to mudjacking, and it dries quickly. You will be able to use it on the same day in most cases. Plus, polyurethane injections are long-lasting and you will not have to worry about your cracked or raised concrete for years to come.
