Why should you fix your sinking or cracked slab?

Not all cracks are created equal… small cracks in your concrete may be nothing to worry about.  It’s extremely common to find small cracks in concrete slabs over time due to the constant movement of the soils underneath. At Maryland Concrete Leveling, we can provide you with peace of mind and assess the severity of the issue to determine if there’s a more serious underlying structural problem.  Aside from the unattractive appearance of sunken or cracked concrete, it’s important to check that these changes won’t lead to larger problems if left untreated. Some of the most common issues we see are trip hazards along sidewalks with sunken concrete, compromised the structural integrity of foundations due to widening cracks over time and voids under slabs caused by soil erosion.

For decades the industry standard was to repair sunken concrete by removing the slab and pouring new concrete. Although this solution is still common practice, it can be both expensive and time-consuming. Polyurethane slab jacking is a cost-effective and time-saving alternative.  Foundation wall cracks can be sealed from this inside with a polyurethane injection that will bond your wall together and keep moisture out. Minor sidewalk cracks can be cleaned and caulked or patched with non-shrinking grout, improving the overall appearance. Let our expert team at Maryland Concrete Leveling help determine the best solution to meet your needs and your budget.
