Settling or cracking concrete patio slabs can be both dangerous and a safety problem. It doesn't matter if you have a large driveway or your patio that is sinking or a smaller part of a path, the concrete lifting process we use will allow us to get it level and return it to the proper height without the potential cost and hassle of removing it and replacing it. This is done using a method known as mudjacking. This process involves injecting a cement slurry that safely and evenly returns the settling slab to it's original location. We can even perform this service on very large slabs such as garage floors and even a sinking basement floor.More Information
