Concrete Leveling Process
The process will begin with the surface of the damaged concrete being cleaned off so that no dirt or debris gets inside during the repair. Next, tiny holes will be drilled into the concrete's surface. Then, a special polyurethane foam material will be injected through the tiny openings, and it will fill up the entire void beneath the concrete.
This will help to make the surface level once again. Next, we will fill and patch over the holes we drilled into the concrete. We will talk to you about the curing process and how long it will be until you can walk or drive over the concrete once again. Typically, the entire process will take a few hours. We will let you know the specifics to your project on the job site.
The individuals completing the work are fully licensed, trained, and insured professionals who have experience taking care of un-level concrete problems like yours. Get in contact with a local SafeBasementsTM dealer that can help you lift your sinking concrete slab.
