Sinking or cracking concrete patio slabs are not only unattractive but they can be dangerous as well. Regardless of if there is an entire driveway or the patio that is cracking or a small section of sidewalk, the concrete lifting process we use can help get it level and return it to the correct location, avoiding the potential cost and hassle of removing it and replacing it. This is done with a method commonly referred to as mudjacking. This process involves injecting a grout that safely and evenly returns the sinking slab to it's original location. We are able to use this on large slabs such as garage floors and even a sinking basement floor.More Information
