Concrete Slab Stabilization

concrete stabilization by Mr. Level

With any home and property projects, it is always easier to catch an issue before it turns into a bigger and more expensive problem. The same is true for stabilizing your concrete. Many people do not know that there is an issue with their driveways until it is too late after the concrete has settled. However, the solution is quick and painless!

What is Concrete Stabilizing?

Often, if your driveway has a void underneath the concrete, you can hear the drive shifting when you are parking, or your kids are playing on it. The sound is typically a thud.

If you hear this thudding sound when you’re on your driveway, it is important to call us right away so we can stabilize the concrete as soon as possible.

To stabilize your driveway, all we have to do is drill a dime-sized hole into the concrete, and then we pump our polyurethane foam into the hole. This foam will fill the void underneath your driveway and allow it to become stable and safe from settling.

Cracked driveway due to void underneath | Mr. Level

In this example, the customer had called us because their driveway was beginning to settle and had cracked as a result of the void. So, we went in, filled the void, and then afterward, the customer caulked the seams make sure water would no longer seep into the cracks anymore. Though the polyurethane is watertight, they felt better about sealing the cracks, just in case.

So, when you hear that void if you don't get it taken care of early enough, it can lead to things like cracks and concrete settling. Void stabilization is much more cost effective than lifting or even replacing by all means. So, you really want to call us before this situation happened so that you won’t be left with a crack in your concrete. 

If you think there might be a void underneath your driveway or if you have any questions about this service from Mr. Level, please contact us today!
