Porches & Patios

Have you ever noticed water running towards your home from your porch or patio?

That will happen when concrete begins to sink and slope towards the house. Voids can also form underneath the concrete and allow water to travel to the foundation wall and can even seep through the foundation wall. Concrete porches and patios can also crack and break off from themselves forming trip hazards. This can cause significant damage to your home’s foundation, leading to high repair costs. 

Due to poor compaction by the original concrete contractor, the soil will be weak, causing the concrete to sink in an awkward position and even begin to crack. While cracking in concrete is normal, concrete can start to crack aggressively if not supported correctly. If you are experiencing these problems, you will want to consider Slab Jacking instead of replacement.

The soil cement slurry will fill all voids underneath the concrete which will stabilize the concrete for many years.
