Concrete leveling is a procedure used to fix uneven concrete surfaces by raising the slab to its desired level. The process includes drilling holes in your damaged concrete slab in order for lifting material to be pumped through the holes. Afterward, the concrete is left for hours before the hole is eventually sealed off.
How does the process work?
Concrete leveling can be used to fix the surface of many different concrete applications such as sidewalks, parking lots, and commercial driveways. There are many names to refer to this process including mudjacking, slabjacking, concrete lifting, and concrete raising, but they all generally refer to the same process only with slightly different variations.
Concrete leveling is a relatively simple concrete repair process that begins by drilling small holes inside an area of concrete slab that needs to be raised. Then, a hose is run through the country slab to inject polyurethane into it to fill all voids underneath, in turn, raising the concrete. Finally, the holes are then filled with cement and the finished slab is ready for use.
What are the benefits?
Some of the benefits of concrete leveling include:
- Quick same day use
- Less risk of injury
- Cheaper labor costs
- Environment friendly
- Fills voids under surface to prevent future issues
Unlike concrete replacement, concrete leveling poses less risk of damage to your property because it does not require demolition or the use of heavy equipment. It is also much cheaper than complete concrete replacement as it does not require an extensive use of manpower, time, or equipment from laborers. This will translate into lower costs for repairing your concrete and a shorter period of time before you will be able to use it again.
