When is the right time to raise my concrete?

www.SlabjackGeotechnical.com

“Should I just wait until my concrete has settled all the way?” or “I’ll just wait until it’s fully settled.” are things we hear often here at Slabjack Geotechnical.

The answer is generally “no” because as slabs settle further, damage will often result. Cracking, pulling away from the building and/or draining water to the foundation.

While no one likes to spend money on concrete repair it’s important to realize it only gets worse from today. More expensive, less athletically pleasing and greater potential for cracks.

Let Slabjack Geotechnical provide a detailed proposal about what’s going on, how we are going to fix it and what it’s going to cost. We are professional, knowledgeable and fair. Call today for your sunken and settling concrete solution.

To Raise or Replace

1-855-752-2522

www.Slabjackgeotechnical.com

The big question, once you have decided to do something about your settled concrete do you replace it or raise it?

This big question generally comes down to cost and if that is the only criteria then raising will be less costly in virtually every case. There are many advantages in raising rather than replacing, raising maintains the consistent look of the surrounding concrete, there is little or no damage to landscape and it will be available immediately.

What are the advantages of pouring new? It will look bright and new and the shape can be altered if desired. If there are fractures (cracks) especially several of them, we generally recommend replacement because raising the concrete will often open up the cracks further making them more noticeable.

You can count on Slabjack Geotechnical to deal honestly with you so your decision is the best choice for you. There is a time for raising and a time for replacement, we will present options so you can make the best choice for your unique situation.

Can water be a cause to my settling issues?- Slabjack Geotechnical

1-855-752-2522

www.SlabjackGeotechnical.com

Poor compaction coupled with excess water causes virtually all the settled concrete we see.

We got a call from a homeowner that their fifty year old home was experiencing some settling on a porch and some attached brickwork. I asked, “the house is fifty years old and the settling just happened?” She replied yes but they had recently installed gutters and downspouts and she suspected that might be the cause.

A site visit showed that she was correct, the downspouts was dumping runoff right at the point of settling. An estimate was provided and the work was completed using Geo-polymer Slabjacking as well as sub grade concrete and steel bracing for the decorative brickwork.

This is so common.  Here’s how to prevent the problem;

New construction – install gutters and downspouts before concrete is poured, insuring water is directed well away from porches, walks, driveways and foundations. Where municipal codes allow, tie into storm drains, if not, dig French drains or use other methods to avoid saturating soils near concrete slabs.  Other concerns are landscape plantings too near foundations and slabs, tree roots, ponds and sprinkler systems.

Existing homes – design the gutter system with the intent to have water going somewhere other than near concrete slabs and structures. This may necessitate tunneling under walks with a drain pipe directing water well away from the home. If this is impossible a French drain can be dug, rain barrels used  or use the retracting downspout extensions that unroll to direct water away from structures when there is run off.

Take the time before settling occurs to correct deficiencies and you will avoid the problems associated with sinking concrete.

Slabjack warranties generally require the correction of the problem that created the original settling. In the vast majority of cases it means making corrections to your drainage system, eliminating plantings that require substantial water, reducing sprinklers or using drip lines instead.

Slabjack Geotechnical is a great resource when it comes to diagnosing the cause of settling and recommending corrective measures to prevent further settling. Call today,

A quick and unobtrusive process, Slabjacking raises settled concrete through the use of an expanding polymer grout. Most jobs are done in a couple of hours and the walk is available for immediate use. No waiting for forms, concrete and curing.

Concrete like anything home related has a lifespan. Concrete can last many decades if it was properly poured, finished and then maintained.

A call to our office will result in an estimator showing up at your home or business to give a detailed proposal on how to best handle your situation. This may involve raising or stabilizing concrete, sealing up cracks and joints, applying a penetrating sealer and giving recommendations on how to prevent future settlement.
