If you have noticed that there are sinking, un-level spots on the concrete surfaces where you park your car, it is a problem that must be taken care of sooner rather than later. The longer you wait to get the problem taken care of, the worse the damage is going to be, and the more expensive and time-consuming it will be to get the situation taken care of.
A lot of homeowners want to know what caused the problem to begin with. Typically, it is caused from poor soil conditions underneath the slab, or it could be caused from inferior building techniques or the wrong strength of concrete being poured during the time of construction. Regardless of what has caused the issue, it must be inspected and repaired ASAP.
Raising and Leveling Driveways With Polyjacking
To take care of the problem, the professionals here at Don Kennedy and Sons make use of a technique known as polyjacking. It has proven time and time again to take care of even the worst sinking slab problems.
The process starts with us thoroughly cleaning off the surface of the damaged area. Next, tiny holes are drilled into the concrete and the polyurethane foam is injected inside. The pressure of the foam causes the slab to lift into place. Next, we will fill in the drilled holes so that they match with the rest of the surface. We can also take care of the cracks which may have formed on the surface as a result of the settlement problem.
