Signs of Sunken Concrete:
- Sinking concrete steps or sidewalks
- Cracked, bumpy and uneven driveways or patios
- Washout of soil under concrete slabs
- Multiple cracks on concrete slabs
Which sidewalk would you prefer?
Walking on sinking sidewalks can be risky. They can quickly turn into safety hazards. Uneven concrete means more concern for homeowners, as sinking slabs increases the chance of tripping on the property. Moreover, you will likely face trouble when it comes to preparing your home for sale. The sight of a sunken sidewalk will dampen the interest of the prospective buyers.
In the past, some of the most reliable methods were mud jacking or slab jacking which was very disruptive, messy and a less certain fix. Better, current methods are using the AFS Settle Stop Concrete Raising System. Contractors used to pump concrete slurry under the settles slab to raise it and control concrete settlement. Today, AFS experts use a more improved, effective and efficient solution which is our Settle Stop Concrete Raising System.
