Concrete slabs can sink from a variety of issues. Poor soil conditions are a primary reason why a slab would settle, especially for slabs built over very soft organic soils. In addition, poor drainage conditions can allow water to erode soil from underneath a concrete slab. In some cases, broken water lines can quickly erode significant soil from underneath concrete within a matter of hours.
Slabjacking is a means of providing clients with a cost-effective means of raising sunken slabs. The technology can rapidly lift concrete with minimal disturbance as well. In fact, many projects are done within existing businesses and households as well. Some common benefits of slabjacking include:
- Rapid repair time: Many projects can be done within hours,
- Clean worksite: Minimal dust and/or debris are created during the process,
- More economical: In many cases, slabjacking can cost a fraction of alternative repair options.
- Environmentally friendly: Heavy jackhammering and concrete hauling requires vast quanity of fuel and also produces noise pollution to the surrounding area. Slabjacking requires minimal energy when compared to alternative options and less carbon emissions as welll.
