Sinking or cracked concrete driveway slabs can be both dangerous and a safety problem. It doesn't matter if there is a large driveway or your patio that is sinking or a small area of a path, our concrete lifting method can allow us to level the slab and restore it to the proper location without the potential cost and hassle of tearing it up and replacing it. We do this with a method commonly referred to as mudjacking. This process features pumping a grout that safely and evenly lifts the settling slab to it's original location. This process can even be used on very large slabs such as garage floors and even a sinking basement floor.More Information
