Do you have an uneven or unlevelled patio? Have you noticed cracks or separations in the concrete slabs? If so, you may need exterior concrete lifting to restore your patio slabs. Concrete slabs sink and settle over time, and allowing them to go unrepaired can cause serious damage to your home.

You shouldn’t have to worry about tripping on uneven concrete when relaxing on your patio. You might also notice your table and chairs wobbling because of uneven concrete. Concrete raising can eliminate these issues and provide a safe, even surface.

Patios have similar problems like driveways with one key difference. They frequently settle more close to the house which creates problems with negative slope, pooling water and voids under the concrete which can become home to pests. Also, patios are frequently formed with individual panels which settle at uneven rates and which causes trip hazards – not a pleasant thought where the kids are playing.

How did this happen

Patios are typically leveled evenly at time of installation. However, years of soil shifting and pressure under the slab can cause the concrete to chip and crack, resulting in dips in the pavement. The slab can also warp and break apart due to pushing from growing tree roots.

How we fix it

Level Best Concrete Lifting uses a high-density polyurethane foam to stabilize and lift sinking concrete patio slabs. The expanding properties of the two-part urethane formula allows for accurate leveling of the slab. The result is a waterproof repair that’s much more permanent than mudjacking and other common concrete repair methods.
