Your patio or deck serves as a gathering place for your family and friends. Additionally, an outdoor living area such as a patio greatly improves your home’s curb appeal. But after many years, you may begin to notice that it’s sinking. Not only is a sinking concrete patio unappealing, but it’s also a hazard. Level Headed Mudjackers has the experience and skills to repair your sunken concrete so that it looks good as new.
Why does uneven concrete need to be leveled?
Wisconsin is prone all four seasons resulting in the constant thawing and freezing of water on your concrete. For that reason, you may begin to notice that your concrete is crumbling and cracking. If left untreated, the concrete will begin to sink and leave gaps between the slab and the foundation. As these gaps grow larger, water has a much easier time running in and causing soil erosion. In short, the larger the gap gets, the worse the problem will get.
How is a Sinking Patio Leveled?
Here’s how the general process of mudjacking (or concrete leveling) works:
- A pattern of holes is drilled through the sunken slabs.
- Grout is pumped under the slab, raising it to the desired height.
- The holes are patched with cement.
The great thing about leveling concrete is that it is less expensive than replacing it. Better yet, we can have your concrete fixed within only a few hours and there is no drying time needed. In addition to patios, Level Headed Mudjackers provides mudjacking services for a number of other problem areas:
