What Causes Sidewalks To Sink?
Disjointed and uneven sidewalks are a common sight no matter where you go. When it's right outside your home, the problem is more apparent. Not only does it make a home look bad, but the trip hazard it poses is very dangerous.
The cause of sinking sidewalks is due to concrete settlement. Essentially, the concrete slab sinks due to the soil shifting below it, and leaving a void with no support for the slab. It can also be due to uplift. This is usually caused by tree roots. There is no way to push a sidewalk down after it’s been raised by tree roots. When concrete settles, the repair needed is concrete leveling. There are several different ways to raise a concrete slab back into place.
Lift Sinking Sidewalks With Mudjacking
Dealing With Sinking Sidewalks
We offer mudjacking service to help raise and level uneven sidewalks. The mudjacking method (also referred to as slabjacking) is a common practice that starts by drilling holes into the concrete and filling it with a special concrete mixture. The concrete is then raised and level again using appropriate measuring tools.
The mudjacking can be done in as little as a couple of hours. Once the mudjacking is performed, the sidewalk will need some time for the materials to cure. When the curing process is complete, the concrete sidewalk is safe to walk on again. There will be no noticeable appearance to the concrete as it will be even and safe to walk on again.
