How Concrete Leveling Could Save the Foundation of Your Home

If you are a homeowner, and a lucky one, you will never have to face the stress and fear of a compromised foundation.  However, foundation problems are a reality for many.  If you have concerns about the integrity of your foundation, it is possible to complete a repair that can actually save your foundation and not break the bank. Detroit Concrete Leveling specializes in a concrete leveling process that has saved many homes and brought peace of mind back to the homeowners who thought that their biggest financial investment might have been lost.

Concrete Leveling Process

If your foundation is sinking, you will notice signs like cracks in your walls and doors or windows that no longer line up with their frames.  To some degree, all houses go through settling and not all settling means a failing foundation.  But if your foundation is experiencing more severe problems, the issue should be addressed as soon as possible.  A common problem that threatens foundations is sinking concrete, which allows water to move back toward the foundation of your house.  This can be extremely problematic, as, over time, water will work to weaken the parts of your house that it gains access to, including your foundation.  And if the concrete slabs that are sinking are not fixed, the problem will only get worse.

Concrete slabs sink when air pockets form underneath.  Often, you will see evidence of problems developing in the form of cracks in the concrete.  If this affects the foundation of your house, every part of the structure that is built on top of the foundation is affected.  This is why damage to your foundation is such a potentially large problem.  Our leveling process has great success in saving foundations.  It is a simple process, but it requires experience and expertise.  We level concrete by drilling small holes into the affected concrete and injecting a slurry of limestone into the holes, which equalizes the pressure underneath and lifts the foundation back to its level state.

5 Benefits of Concrete Leveling Compared to Concrete Replacement

When you find cracks and damage to a portion of your concrete sidewalk, driveway or parking lot, you may assume that the only way to complete the repairs is to replace the entire problematic area.  However, before you decide to replace your concrete, consider concrete leveling with Detroit Concrete Leveling.  Concrete leveling is a highly effective technique that can be used as an alternative to concrete replacement. Concrete leveling has many important benefits including:

  1. Less expensive: Concrete leveling costs approximately ⅓ of what it costs to replace the original area of concrete. Save yourself money with this process!
  2. Repairs take less time: Concrete replacement can take many days to complete. Concrete leveling is a simple procedure that corrects your uneven concrete surfaces by repairing the foundation underneath.  Concrete leveling can take a matter of hours, and generally traffic can resume on the concrete slab within 24 hours.
  3. Environmentally friendly: The concrete leveling process is very neat and clean and generates minimal waste, so it is much more environmentally friendly than replacing the concrete, which most often requires a trip to the landfill.
  4. Increased curb appeal: Replacing concrete can leave you with a mixture of concrete colors and textures that can look less polished and professional. Concrete leveling offers increased curb appeal and actually adds value to your home or business.
  5. Convenient and less disruptive: Because the process is quick, you and your guests will not have to deal with the disruption of a concrete replacement job. Concrete leveling takes just a matter of hours!
