When the soil underneath a concrete slab is of poor quality and can no longer support its weight, the slab will sink or settle. If some areas of soil are weak and others are not, the result may be uneven, unleveled, cracked, or caving concrete. Sinking concrete is caused by excessive weight, expansion and contraction due to changes in the weather, and erosion of supporting soil due to the movement of water below the surface. Common areas that experience sinking concrete include:
- Garage floors
- Pool decks
- Basement slabs
Sinking concrete is unattractive and can create tripping hazards if not repaired. Epp Concrete offers concrete leveling services as a solution to sinking concrete issues. In most cases, the price of raising your concrete is just a fraction of the cost of completely replacing it.
