Three Methods of Concrete Leveling

Uneven concrete slabs, whether they are on your driveway, sidewalk, or pool deck can be not only unsightly but also dangerous. Not only can they be dangerous to people who are walking on them, they can also cause structural problems to your home. Concrete leveling allows sunken and elevated concrete slabs to be repaired without having them replaced. This article will explain the three most common concrete leveling techniques, including mud-jacking, polyleveling, and A-1’s patented lime slurry grout leveling method.

Mudjacking, also known as concrete leveling, is a solution that involves pumping a mixture of soil, sand, and water under the sunken slab to raise it up. While this is a very effective method for lifting concrete, it does have some drawbacks. First, a slurry-mix can weaken the ground beneath the slab. This could cause the sunken cement to sink again. Second, lifting the sunken cement to the previous height is not possible with mudjacking. The voids are not filled or stabilized.

The slurry may take several weeks to fully cure. This can cause problems for homeowners who need their slabs back in use quickly. A-1’s concrete levels solutions are made with a polyurethane that cures quickly and reaches its full strength in only 20 minutes. You can use your sunken concrete within a week, and enjoy the benefits of your driveway and yard.
