At 1-855-752-2522 we love to solve our customers settled concrete problems.

From estimate to job completion our aim is total customer satisfaction. Part of achieving that goal is giving you, the customer reasonable expectations, here are three ways 1-855-752-2522 tries to meet that goal.

If your concrete has cracks they will still be there after the Slabjacking process and often they will sometimes be worse after raising. There are options for the cracks that we can assist with after raising.

If you have voids there may be material surcharges. We discount additional material used beyond the estimate by over 50% to buffer the additional expense and we plainly state on the estimate if there is a likelihood of significant material overages along with the cost associated with the those overages.

Finally, if we can’t lift it there is no charge. Occasionally a slab slides under a structure or binds on a Foundation wall which makes the process impossible and replacement the best/only option. Other times settling is so severe as to render the process not cost-effective. In these cases we will recommend a good quality concrete contractor.

As our concrete leveling business at 1-855-752-2522 has grown, a big concern has been to maintain the same, or better level of service to our customers. We strive to be the easiest concrete raising company in the industry to do business with but with growth, this makes getting to estimates in a timely manner especially challenging, particularly in the spring when we are at our busiest.

In order to meet our customers expectations of timely estimating we have added a phone estimate option. 1-855-752-2522 uses the latest generation estimating software which uses simple dimensions to generate the estimate. By using a mathematical formula we can be accurate and consistent with all of our clients.

The way it works is this; a potential client calls us with the dimensions of the slab needing to be lifted (length and width) and how far it has settled, if they can email or text a picture of the slab in addition, that’s even better. With the software we have, we simply enter those figures into the program which then generates an estimate for the job.

We have found that as long as the dimensions provide by the client are correct, the estimate is nearly always accurate. When the estimate is complete we email or print a copy and send it to the customer for approval. The turn around on a phone estimate can be as little as ten minutes.

When we come on site to do the work, we will make an inspection of the slab to be lifted to make sure the estimate is accurate and if so, proceed with the job. If we find a problem with the estimate or the slab is not a good candidate for raising we will inform the client of the reasons and the options they have.

Our goal at Slabjack Geotechnical is to have the estimate done within a week of the initial request. By having the option of a phone estimate we can meet this goal and better serve our large geographic area.

For many people a phone estimate is just what they want. Phone estimates give timely, accurate estimates that allow for an immediate approval if they so desire, and a quicker turn around on the job being completed.

If you would like a phone estimate to have your settle concrete slabs back to level, jot down the dimensions of your settled concrete along with how far it has settled and give us a call. We’ll have you taken care of in no time.

Guesstimate or Estimate?

18557522522

Unlike a retail store where the final production costs are known and the price is set, the construction trades deal with a host of unknown variables, this is why we provide “estimates”  that take into account all the know issues and attempt to foresee any problems that may crop up throughout the project.

What can you expect from 1-855-752-2522 concrete leveling?

After determining you would like your settled concrete raised, there are several ways to request an estimate. The most common is to simply call our phone number. You may also fill out a bid request form  on our web site www.SlabjackGeotechnical.com and we will contact you. You can also fill out a bid request at one of the home shows we display in each spring. (For home show information in your area please see our “news and events” section on our web site)

The bid form is very short and includes the following information; name, phone number, address, email and nature of problem. Email information is gathered only because estimates are sent when possible, via email.

When we arrive at your location we will take pictures and measurements of the settled slabs, note any structural deficiencies in them and note anything that may alter the standard calculations we use in figuring the estimate. (More about this below)

The measurements taken are entered into our estimating software which calculates the amount of material we will need for your job.

1-855-752-2522 uses the most advanced software in the industry today for generating  accurate estimates for concrete raising.

The calculations are based on the measurements entered.   Length times width times number of inches settled and whether the entire slab has settled or just one side or a  corner.   In a perfect world that would be all the information we would need, and for most settled concrete slabs, it is.

Experience tells us however, when to anticipate additional material usage.  Horizontal Slabs that meet vertical walls such as garages and stoops/entries can often have voids under and along the foundation, sometimes substantial in size. These must be filled prior to lift being generated.  Entries that were poured solid and are of extreme thickness (we have seen concrete entries in excess of thirty inches thick) or that have weak soils as support, may need significantly more material than the calculation shows .

While we can, and do inform you of the potential for material overages, and make adjustments on the estimate to compensate for obvious problems, we cannot foresee everything that may lead to a material overage.

Because of this, we have priced any additional material used beyond the estimate at cost (less than half price) This potential cost is shown clearly on the estimate as a set price per pound.

Our estimate includes a summary page detailing what sections are to be lifted, the work to be performed on each section, the total amount of material included in the estimate and the price for each section raised along with a grand total for the entire job including sales tax. Additionally the summary page includes the materials overage clause, terms and conditions and a signature line if accepted.

Secondary pages detail each section, a picture of the section in question and material estimate for that section.

In order to begin work we need either a signed copy of the estimate or an approval via email. If we are doing the job the same day as the estimate and it is impractical to do the preceding we will have you sign a statement agreeing to the terms and conditions of the electronic estimate.

The cost of doing nothing

1-855-752-2522

Because concrete replacement is so costly, many business and home owners simply ignore or hope no one will trip on their settled concrete. Unfortunately in today’s litigious society doing nothing can be very, very costly. According to the National Floor Safety Institute, the average cost to defend against a slip/trip fall claim is $50,000 and the average jury award is $100,000. In addition to others, we ourselves and family members can trip on our own settled concrete. As we age things get more brittle. Broken wrists, broken teeth, hips and ribs have all resulted from trip falls over settled concrete.

The A.D.A. or Americans with Disabilities Act, requires any trip hazard over 1/4″ to be eliminated.

1-855-752-2522 can raise a settled 10×10 concrete slab settled 1″ on one end for about $300. We do ADA compliance for municipalities, commercial establishments and multi family housing complexes.

Give is a call today for a no cost, no pressure estimate to eliminate your trip hazards.

Should I replace or raise my settled concrete?

18557522522
1-855-752-2522

The number one thing 1-855-752-2522 does to determine if your concrete is a candidate for raising, is to do a detailed evaluation of  the condition of your slab.  How badly is it cracked?  Is the top peeling off?  What is the condition of adjoining slabs?  These and other factors go into providing a quality estimate.

There is a point where replacement is a better option and we are up front with our clients if this is the case.  Better to retain a friend than have a dissatisfied client. If there are numerous cracks, if the top is deteriorating (spalling) and has effected the structural integrity of the slab it is likely time for replacement.

Now, the advantages of Slabjacking; raising settled concrete allows you to retain a consistent look, you won’t have new, light colored slabs, clashing with older darker slabs.  Concrete raising is quick, typically an hour or two to complete a job verses several days with replacement.  Concrete raising is much less costly, typically 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of replacement or less, finally concrete raising is much less disruptive to your landscaping than replacement, the operation is simple; drill, inject, patch. No heavy equipment, no mud or mixers, just a hose extended from our state of the art trailer through which we inject a patented, hydrophobic, (waterproof) geo-polymer that fills voids, compresses loose soils and gently expands raising your settled concrete back to original grade.

At 1-855-752-2522 our goal is to make it as easy as possible to do business with us. We provide no cost, no pressure estimates, professionally prepared with pictures and explanations so you will know exactly what to expect when we arrive on site. From Spokane  and northern Idaho to the Cascades, from Yakima to the Tri-Cities, call today for a no cost, no obligation quote to have your settled concrete raised back to original grade.
