Uneven concrete can be a safety hazard if left alone for too long. While it might be tempting to completely replace the concrete slab, your best solution might actually be in concrete leveling. Uneven concrete is often caused by changes in the soil beneath. When foundation settlement occurs, concrete slabs can sink or rise along with the moving soil, causing them to become uneven and crack. Rather than pouring new concrete, which is an expensive fix, concrete leveling should be considered as a cost-effective alternative that solves the problem at its source. Our concrete leveling services use mudjacking or PolyLift to level your foundation and restore your concrete. CNT Foundations has concrete leveling tools that will bring your concrete slab back to where it belongs.
Commercial Concrete Leveling
Concrete slabs can shift and sink with the erosion of the soil through which it is being supported. This shifting and sinking causes the concrete to become uneven. Whether your warehouse floor is sinking in one corner or your front walkway has become a tripping hazard, your commercial property needs professional concrete leveling. CNT Foundations can correct the leveling of your concrete slab with effective solutions that are meant to withstand the stresses that come with commercial property.
Our Two Approaches to Concrete Leveling: Mudjacking and PolyLift
We use two approaches to concrete leveling; mudjacking and PolyLift. Mudjacking and PolyLift work in a very similar way in that concrete or polyurethane foam is injected through a small hole drilled into the concrete. The concrete or foam fills the void below the slab caused by weak, shifting soil until the slab is level again. Mudjacking and PolyLift have different advantages. Based on the needs of your property, CNT Foundations’ concrete leveling experts will be able to determine which solution is right for you.
What Causes Uneven Concrete
Soil erosion or shifting is a common cause of uneven concrete slabs.When the soil shifts, one side or the entire concrete slab sinks because it is no longer being supported. This is why so many foundations, concrete floors, patios and walkways begin to tilt, crack and become uneven.
CNT Foundations offers several commercial concrete and foundation services, and we have corrected countless uneven concrete slabs of all sizes. To learn more, call your #1 choice in South Carolina for foundation & crawl space repair in North Charleston at 843-405-7022.
