All about Concrete Leveling

Concrete leveling Columbus projects usually include leveling of driveways, pool decks, walkways, sidewalks, industrial slabs, resurfacing, patios, approaches, porches, and basements as well as floors in the interior of homes and offices.

Every crack or gaps in concrete can actually make your patios or poll decks look dirty and unkempt. More than an eyesore, it can trip you or your family members or friends and on top of that, water and dirt can easily accumulate in those cracks and gaps. The water that accumulates in those cracks can freeze and expand (a property of water) and make the cracks get bigger and the concrete uneven. These cracks and gaps can appear in sidewalks and driveways, patios, as well as around the foundation of your home and between concrete slabs too.

Many things around us can lead to crack formation and gaps such as root growth, extreme weather conditions, and standing water. The main culprit that causes cracks is water. Whenever there is an improper drainage of water, which can seep into the wake sections in the concrete and create cracks and gaps.
As mentioned above water that get into the cracks and joints freezes, expands leading to bigger longer and deeper cracks, and finally lead to foundation damages, wet moist basements and crawl spaces and unhealthy and unsafe house. Cracked patios, walkways, and driveways are the leading reasons that cause damp and moldy basements and crawl spaces.

Concrete leveling Columbus, also known as slab jacking and mud jacking usually involve sand-based grout. The foam jacking procedure involves lifting and stabilizing the concrete by means of high-density polyurethane foam.

The construction and repair technique or concrete leveling corrects sunk and tilted concrete slabs. It does not take much time as within minutes the equipment for the operations is installed, and it takes only few hours to get the job done. The procedure of concrete leveling is done by drilling holes in specific areas to inject grout or a polyurethane compound. By applying hydraulic pressure, the concrete slabs are elevated to reach its original level. Concrete leveling is a very economical and quick fix method for cracked and uneven concrete and you are saved from replacing the complete driveway or patio.
