It offers a quicker, more dependable, and non-toxic alternative to mudjacking for effectively leveling concrete.
Why Does Concrete Settle?
Multiple factors, including inadequate compaction, bad site conditions, poor drainage, and tree roots, can cause concrete to settle. The biggest cause of this problem is when rain or gutter water washes away dirt from your driveway or sidewalk. As a result, the concrete is left with voids or pockets underneath it, which consequently causes it to settle.
Another factor is clay-rich soil, which varies in size as per the soil moisture levels. The soil expands when it gets water-saturated and shrinks as it dries out. As a result, the soil is rendered unstable because of the frequent changes in moisture, causing the concrete to shift and sink.
Concrete Leveling Using Polyjacking
The concrete should be supported by a solid foundation of soil. The concrete slab cannot be replaced if the earth beneath it is unstable. Polyjacking is the perfect answer to this problem.
