How Concrete Leveling Can Help Your Business

Is your business sinking—or is it just your concrete? Concrete leveling can be an important part of commercial property maintenance, and it’s definitely not an expense you should put off until next quarter. When neglected, uneven concrete gets worse over time. The added sinking costs more money to repair as well as more structural and safety issues to address. Here’s are four advantages to investing in concrete repair.

Commercial property maintenance with concrete leveling.

Reduce Customer Injury

Your customers are what makes your business so successful. Their wellbeing is an important part of the customer experience. Cracked concrete sidewalks, parking lots, and entryways can create serious tripping hazards, which can result in injury or even lawsuits. Concrete leveling will help keep your customers safe and allow them to experience the very best your brand has to offer.

Lower Workplace Injury

Your employees are what keeps your business running. It’s important to make sure they have a safe work environment. Workplace accidents can not only injure your employees, but also slow production down. As a business owner, it’s your responsibility to keep your employees safe by eliminating any tripping hazards.

Lessen Liability Fears

Insurance costs weighing on your budget? Liability fears keeping you up at night? Customers who are injured could successfully sue your business for damages. Even if your insurance covers it, you could wind up paying significantly higher premiums when it comes time to renew your policy. Not to mention, workplace injury can result in expensive workers’ compensation claims that are time-consuming and could leave you with thousands in legal fees and fines. It’s best for business owners to rest easy by fixing broken concrete now, rather than waiting for an accident to happen. 

Improve Curb Appeal

There’s nothing more unattractive to a business’s storefront or office than cracked concrete. Concrete cracks serve as excellent places for weeds to grow. It’s also unattractive to customers and pedestrians, as it makes your business look run-down. You already invest money in advertising companies for attractive signage and janitorial services for a clean interior, so why not invest in curb appeal too? With concrete leveling, you’re giving your commercial property the face-lift needed to attract more business.

Frigid air, snowstorms, and ice 15winter in Northeast Ohio can be brutal. When ice and snow melt, the water soaks into the concrete, leaving it vulnerable to refreeze when the temperature drops back down again. When the water inside of your concrete freezes, it can expand and exert internal pressure throughout the concrete, causing tiny cracks to form. When this process is repeated through multiple cycles of snowfall and melting, small pieces of the concrete surface can flake off and leave unsightly marks on your sidewalk and driveway. While no one wants to chance slipping on a sidewalk or driveway and winding up in the ER, you dont want to create more issues by using the wrong ice melting product. Salt can be a popular and cost-effective choice as a concrete deicer; however, many home and business owners are concerned about the effects of salt on concrete.

Polyjacking vs Mudjacking: What it is and which is the better concrete leveling method

Sunken, settled, and uneven concrete slabs are not uncommon in Ohio. Mudjacking and polyjacking are two common concrete leveling solutions for property owners looking for an alternative to costly replacement. Is one concrete leveling method better than the other? Lets compare mudjacking vs. polyjacking. What is Mudjacking? Mudjacking is a concrete leveling method that pumps mud under a building, driveway or other sunken concrete to lift it. A specialized hydraulic pump pushes the mud mix into holes drilled in the slabs. Mr. Level considers mudjacking the Flintstones approach to concrete leveling. With mudjacking, your sunken concrete is drilled with dime-size holes, pumped with mud and then the mud hardens up. To support the lifted concrete, mudjacking relies on underlying soils, which are impacted by the same elements that lead to cracking and sinking, so contractors are not able to guarantee the work.
