RISks of Sinking Concrete in Cranberry Township, PA; Erie, PA; Pittsburgh, PA; Washington, PA; & Youngstown, OH
When your porch sinks, a number of hazards and problems begin to arise. The longer you put off concrete repair and leveling, the more expensive and dangerous your problem can become. Contact A1 Concrete Leveling as soon as possible for concrete lifting. Otherwise, you could be faced with the following issues from sinking concrete. When concrete sinks:
- You and guests are at more risk of injury. If your porch is slanted or sunk, it is easier for you or guests to fall and get hurt. A misstep can lead to someone tripping, falling, and ending up injured. If someone gets injured on your property, you can be held responsible for their damages. With a sinking porch, a simple mail delivery can turn into expensive medical bills or an insurance battle.
- The structure of your home can become compromised from sinking concrete. If your porch has a roof overhead, when the concrete sinks, so does the roof. This could ultimately collapse your roof if you do not receive concrete leveling. A simple concrete leveling could save you expensive roof repairs in the future.
- The property value of your home is diminished. When homebuyers view your sinking porch, they are going to worry about not only the structural strength of your home and expensive roof repairs, but also how well the property is maintained. If you do nothing to fix a visually obvious problem, homebuyers will wonder what else is wrong with the home that may be hidden. Not only will the homebuyers have to pay for concrete leveling themselves, but they will constantly be wondering what other damage has been hidden. A home with a level porch is one with a higher property value.
What is the Process
Learn more about the process we use for Concrete Porches
Over time water seepage, faulty drainage, poor compaction, and the freeze-thaw cycle result in settling which affects your concrete’s base, resulting in a void. It is also known as concrete lifting. Concrete leveling works by filling the void. After drilling a series of 1″ holes, a high-density limestone grout is pressure-injected to fill the void. Once the void is filled, the slab is stabilized and slowly raised to desired height. The holes are then capped and the concrete is ready for immediate use. As a cost and time-efficient alternative to concrete replacement, concrete leveling eliminates unnecessary concrete production and installation. We replace earth with more stable earth, repairing concrete surfaces in an environmentally responsible way. If you have sinking concrete on your property, don’t wait; call us to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. We are a concrete contractor serving Pittsburgh, PA; Erie, PA; Cranberry Township, PA; Washington, PA; and Youngstown, OH.
