It’s common for homeowners to install concrete sidewalks and walkways around and through their property. While concrete is an inexpensive and useful material for sidewalks and walkways, it can have problems. At the top of that list is sinking sidewalks.
Are Your Sidewalks Sinking?
Face it – concrete isn’t a “problem-solved forever” kind of material. And when problems like cracking and sinking start, you need to fix them before they take over. So, what is the best way to repair sinking concrete? The answer may surprise you.
Concrete sinks. It’s not an if or a maybe; it’s just reality. The technical fact is the soil beneath the concrete shifts and changes, contracts and compounds and will often settle lower than it used to be, taking the sidewalk down with it. Leaving the walkways sunken and uneven is not a good option, as the problem will spread and worsen. Hardscape features like your firepit or the BBQ become unstable without a solid foundation under them.
Typically, lifting concrete is done with more concrete, but there is a better way to lift those sidewalks faster and with less mess. At Advance Concrete Lifting and Leveling, we use polyurethane foam to lift your concrete sidewalks and walkways. The foam forms a sturdy, long-lasting barrier in minutes to lift and level the concrete above. Drying time is about 15 minutes and you will be using your repaired concrete walkways by the time we pull out of your driveway.

Don’t slide down the slope of neglecting the outside of your home by ignoring the little things. Those little things add up and they turn into big things.
