Is your driveway sinking? Is it sloping to one side or the other? Are there long cracks across the slab? Did you trip over the small step going into the garage? Over the years, the soil under your driveway will shrink and expand with the increase and decrease of moisture. This can cause voids to form and eventually these voids will lead to cracks or sinking of the driveway. There are only a couple of ways to repair this problem. One is to tear up the driveway and pour a new one which can cost thousands of dollars and many hours of work. The cost-effective alternative is to use polyjacking to raise the driveway back into place in a matter of hours.
Because the driveway is such a large slab of concrete, it is important to make sure it is leveled before any large cracks appear. We achieve this leveling using our polyurethane mixture that is injected below the slab and will steadily fill all the gaps and holes below the driveway to lift it back to its original position. Once the polyjacking is completed, the driveway will be properly supported and level again. This is the ideal alternative to replacing the entire slab.
Having a damaged concrete driveway can be a nuisance. Cracks, uneven surfaces and pooling water can all cause further damage and lead to major concerns if not addressed correctly. We are sure you've been told a new driveway is in order, but that isn't always the case. If you find yourself considering replacing your old driveway, make sure to call Midstate Concrete Leveling & Lifting at (833) 543-8352. We specialize in repairing cracks that cause pooling water or present a tripping hazard.
While replacing the entire driveway may seem like the only solution. You hire a team to tear up the old one and start over from the existing concrete. No doubt tearing up your driveway will fix your uneven driveway issues, but it also requires more time, effort, and money. We can all agree this seems like a lot of work fixing driveway cracks.
On the other hand, Polyjacking can be completed relatively quickly with minimal disruption to your property. It takes only hours for the team at Midstate Concrete Leveling and Lifting to inject our polyurethane mixture below your concrete slab to lift it back into its original position. Once this process is finished, you'll have a perfectly level driveway again at a fraction of the cost of a replacement.
Even if you properly maintain your existing concrete driveway, cracks will still appear over time. These issues can be caused by extreme weather and temperature shifts, long-term saturation from rain, or something as simple as a heavy vehicle parked in the same spot for an extended period of time.
Concrete cracks on the surface of your driveway can't be fixed with crack filler. This will help conceal them, but filling cracks will only delay the proper concrete driveway repair process. We know it might seem like a quick easy fix, but all it does is postpone the inevitable. The only way to properly fix your driveway issues is to hire a professional team like ours that has experience with concrete driveway repair.
Another common issue that residential driveways face is becoming unlevel over time, due to the weight of the concrete slab sinking into the ground. Even if this doesn't cause cracking, it will still result in damage to the driveway, and can be a trip hazard for people who visit your home. If you notice your driveway becoming unlevel, it's important to have it repaired as soon as possible to avoid further damage. A professional contractor can level out your driveway and make any necessary repairs, so it looks like new again.
Many issues come with a driveway that isn't perfectly level. For example, there may be cracks and gaps on your concrete surface that make it difficult to walk on without tripping. These cracks and uneven spots can even cause water to pool on parts of your driveway, leading to further damage. All these signs indicate your concrete driveway needs repair but replacing it is a big undertaking. To save yourself time and money, call Midstate Concrete Leveling & Lifting if you are located in NY, FL, or PA.
