How To Fix Sunken Concrete
Sometimes, concrete surfaces, which are rigid and without flex, tend to crack or break depending upon what's happening beneath the surface of the ground upon which they rest. Fortunately, in many cases, it is possible to minimize and repair the damage the ground's movement has caused.
Causes of Sunken Concrete
Usually, the reasons concrete resting upon the Earth cracks or breaks have to do with what is going on beneath the surface of the Earth. The soil in areas with high clay content tend to swell, causing the ground to expand during rainy weather and to shrink, causing the Earth to contract during droughts. Concrete placed upon land fill areas that were never adequately compacted may also tend to shift or fall inward. The depletion of local underground aquifers is also frequently responsible for the shifting of the topsoil as is virtually undetectable seismic activity.
Ways to Fix Uneven Concrete
- Slabjacking - Slabjacking is an attempt at concrete leveling that is conducted through the drilling of strategically spaced small holes, typically 1" in diameter, upon the surface of a concrete slab. Grout or mud is hydraulically forced through these holes, causing the surface of the concrete to lift.
- Polyjacking - This concrete leveling procedure is closely related to slabjacking but for the fact that the drilled holes are much smaller and the pumped-in material is a type of closed cell polymer foam that fills all available open space below the ground before beginning to press the concrete upwards.
- Concrete Replacement - The repair, resurfacing or outright replacement of the existing concrete is frequently a contractor's first resort despite the fact that it is almost twice as expensive as polyjacking. Unfortunately, concrete that is replaced, but whose cause for deterioration is not addressed, is subject to experiencing more breakdowns in the near future. Any serious concrete repair should be conducted with an eye towards addressing the cause of the problem and not just its symptoms.
