Does your sidewalk, walkway, driveway, patio or concrete steps have problems? Are their areas where you find sunken concrete or uneven surfaces? Do people often trip because of this issue? This is a very noticeable problem, but in fact has a very simple solution.
Are you wondering why you’re outdoor concrete sinks in the first place? The main reason is because concrete is heavy. There are soils underneath a concrete slab, and when they sink, they are unable to support the weight of the slab. As a result of that, the concrete ends up sinking. If soils are supporting some part of the concrete slab while the other selections are not, the unsupported sections will start to crack and you will have to deal with uneven concrete.
Here are some signs to indicate that your concrete is sinking:
- Cracking and sinking sections of slabs
- Repeated cracking of concrete slabs
- Sinking concrete steps or sidewalks
- Washout of soils under concrete slabs
- Concrete patios and driveways sinking or tilting down
Sinking concrete can turn driveways, concrete floors and sidewalks into unattractive safety hazards. This can turn out to be a real problem if you are:
- Preparing your home for sale to give a great first impression
- Concerned about visitors tripping in your property
- Or simply because you want to take care of your home
