Sinking or cracking concrete slabs are both unsafe and make your home look worse. Regardless of if you have a driveway or your patio that is settling or a small part of sidewalk, our concrete lifting method will allow us to level the slab and return it to the correct height, avoiding the cost and work involved with removing it and replacing it. We do this with a process known as mudjacking. This process features pumping a slurry that safely and evenly raises the sinking slab to it's original location. This process can even be used on large slabs such as garage floors and even a sinking basement floor.More Information
