Driveways and Floors

Concrete Experts uses a variety of techniques and technology to fix your concrete issues.

Some of the common problems are:

  • Lips into the garage causing water to drain in between the slabs and not down the driveway perpetuating the problem.
  • Negative slope towards the house possibly causing cracking in the foundation and water leakage into the house or garage.
  • Uneven joints that are tripping hazards and can hurt those who visit your home or place of business.
  • Cracks caused by sinking concrete or concrete not sitting on the ground.
  • Ice and pools of water where the water can’t escape due to improper drainage.
  • Uneven garage or man doors due to concrete sinking on one side or the other.
  • Nesting areas for voles, skunks, and rabbits that is created by sinking ground or voids under concrete.

There are two options for these issues:

1. Replacement

  • Brand new concrete.
  • Correct slope
  • No drainage issues
  • Costs more than lifting or mudjacking

2. Mudjacking or lifting the concrete

  • Corrects slope
  • No drainage issues
  • Cost effective
  • However, the concrete if damaged will look the same after the lift.

We provide both of these solutions and are happy to provide you with a cost comparison. Often the mudjacking is less than half the price but we are happy to give you options.

Sidewalk, walkways, and patios

Common Issues:

  • Extra-large steps that can be too large for children or elderly and just downright uncomfortable for anyone really.
  • Nesting areas for voles, skunks, and rabbits that is created by sinking ground or voids under concrete.
  • Negative slope towards the house possibly causing cracking in the foundation and water leakage into the house or garage.
  • Not enough support for additions or decks sitting on concrete slabs.

Stairs and steps

Common Issues:

  • Pulling away from the house.
  • Sinking down creating large steps into the home or place of business.
  • Cracking sidewalks because they are dropping with the stairs.
  • Pooling ice or water at the bottom of the stairs.
  • Improper drainage towards the house causing flooding or cracking in the foundation.

2. Mudjacking or lifting the stairs.

  • More cost effective.
  • Less invasive-work is done in one day.

Void Filling and Stabilization

Common Issues:

  • No support under concrete causing the building or floor to sink.
  • When machinery or other equipment goes over the floor there is movement in the floor that can cause problems with the infrastructure or machinery operating on the floor.
  • Nesting by voles, skunks and other critters causing a hazard.
  • Water tends to accumulate in these areas because of improper drainage and the area is not sealed off causing instability underneath your concrete/building.

Foundation with polyurethane foam injected

Solutions:

By using state of the art technology, we inject polyurethane foam into the area. Not only does it fill the void and support the concrete, but it stabilizes the ground and compacts it creating a more stable subgrade.

The polyurethane foam can support tens of thousands of pounds and will last forever. Only UV light can break it down.
