Why concrete walkways sink and crack
Walkways and sidewalks are exposed to a lot of wear and tear. When the soil supporting the concrete becomes weak, the concrete can crack and sink. There are many things that can create a void beneath the slab, such as erosion from rainwater or gutter runoff, or a tree root that has rotted over time. Dirt fill underneath the slab that has not been well compacted can also create voids beneath the concrete. Regardless of what’s caused your sidewalk to sink, we can fix it!
Before and after: Concrete sidewalk lifting
Look familiar? The sidewalk in front of this home settled a couple of inches, creating a trip hazard and an area for water to pool. After raising the slab with PolyRenewal™, we were able to turn the sunken sidewalk into a safe, even surface.
Restoring the walkway with concrete lifting
Some areas require home and business owners to maintain the sidewalks adjoining their property. If someone trips and falls on the sidewalk in front of your home, you might be liable. It’s important to check your town or city’s sidewalk regulations.
Concrete lifting with PolyRenewal™ is a practical, affordable solution for concrete sidewalk repair. In addition to taking less time and costing you less, concrete lifting is far less disruptive to the landscaping. If the concrete is ripped out and repoured, the grass can be damaged from the heavy equipment and the removal of the old slab. With PolyRenewal™ injection lifting, there’s almost no waiting for the concrete to cure before you can walk on it. With concrete replacement, it usually takes about a day for the concrete to cure.
