When you have uneven concrete slabsu on your sidewalk, this poses a huge tripping hazard for you, your family, and to anyone who visits your property. If someone happens to fall and get hurt on your property, you may be liable for the damages. To prevent this from happening to you, it will be important for you to schedule an appointment for an inspection whenever you first notice a problem. This can help to prevent additional damage, and the risk of someone getting injured.
A lot of people want to know what causes the sinking and settling problem with slabs, and it is typically attributed to poor soil conditions or building techniques. If the contractor didn't use the correct strength of concrete, then it can also lead to a lot of problems.
When it comes to taking care of the problem, the professionals at Don Kennedy and Sons make use of a technique known as polyjacking. This involves using a polyethylene foam to lift the sinking slab. Tiny holes are drilled into the surface, and the foam is inserted into the openings. The pressure of the foam is able to push the concrete up. We then fill in the drilled holes so that they match with the rest of the surface. The entire process can be finished quickly, and the material will cure within 15-20 minutes. We can also take care of the cracks which may have formed on the surface as a result of the settlement problem.
