Sinking or cracked concrete slabs can be both dangerous and a safety problem. Regardless of if the problem is a long driveway or the patio that is settling or a small part of sidewalk, our concrete lifting services can help get it level and return it to the correct height, preventing the potential cost and work involved with tearing it out and replacing it. We do this with a process known as mudjacking. This process involves injecting a cement slurry that safely and evenly raises the settling slab to it's original location. We can even perform this service on very large slabs like garage floors and even a sinking basement floor.More Information
