Sinking Garage Floors
When you notice that the surface where you park your car isn't as level as it should be, it indicates that there is a problem with the slabs. This could be a result of settlement of the concrete due to poor soil conditions, or it could be caused from improper building techniques or the wrong grade of concrete being used. Regardless of what has caused the problem, it must be taken care of immediately before it results in even more damage.
Additionally, it could cause problems for your car's tires. Repeatedly running over uneven surfaces could pop the tire or cause problems with the amount of air it has inside. It's best to avoid these problems and get your slabs taken care of ASAP when you notice an issue.

At Don Kennedy and Sons, we make use of a technique known as polyjacking when we need to lift un-even concrete surfaces. This techniques is similar to "mudjacking" or "slabjacking," but instead of a messy concrete slurry mix, it makes use of a polyurethane expanding foam.
Once the foam is inserted into tiny holes in the damaged slab, the pressure of its expansion is able to push the slab back into place where it should be. The foam cures and hardens quickly, usually within 15-20 minutes, and afterward, you are able to drive or walk over it like normal again.
We can also take care of the cracks which may have formed on the surface as a result of the settlement problem.
