Here at A-1 Concrete Leveling and Foundation Repair in Nashville, we’re proud to use all-natural products for all of our concrete floor leveling projects. Other concrete leveling companies use chemical-based polyurethane foams to raise concrete slabs, but this simply isn’t good for the earth!

In today’s blog post, we’ll share with you the benefits of using limestone grout — the primary material in our custom slurry — for concrete leveling. Continue reading to learn more, and if you’re in need of concrete leveling in Nashville, contact our professional concrete contractors.

Earth-Based Product

Your concrete slab is uneven because the earth below it is shifting. When we use limestone to raise the slab, we’re replacing that earth with more earth — natural stone product mined from our planet. 

No Additional Weight

Did you know that when your concrete slab was poured it was poured onto a limestone base? We think that it’s a perfect material for re-establishing the base, since that’s what the base is originally made of. One of the common misconceptions that concrete leveling companies who use foam will tell you is that limestone is heavy and will lead to further sinking and uneven slabs. Weight isn’t an issue, and if you’d like to know more, contact A-1 Concrete Leveling and Foundation Repair in Nashville!

Spreads More Smoothly

The ability to spread evenly under a sunken slab is one of the most important benefits of using limestone as opposed to polyurethane foam. When you’re performing concrete leveling, the goal is to re-establish a solid base. If the material doesn’t spread properly and fill in all the gaps under the broken slab, you’ll be at risk for future cracks.  

Doesn’t Attract Critters

We’ve been providing Nashville with concrete floor leveling for more than 20 years and we’ve never seen any evidence that our methods lead to infestation. Polyurethane foam, on the other hand, does come with the risk of attracting critters.

Can Be Injected Into Different Sized Holes

Depending on the concrete leveling situation, our concrete contractors will determine what size hole needs to be drilled. Our product can be injected through both a 1-inch or 5/8-inch hole, which gives us more options in terms of delivery.

Permanent Solution

One of the great things about getting concrete leveling from A-1 Concrete Leveling and Foundation Repair in Nashville is that our limestone grout is a permanent solution to your concrete problem. Our material hardens underneath the slab, and as long as there is no future erosion beneath our material, our process provides you with a solution that will last as long as your concrete!
