How Concrete Leveling Works
At A-1 Concrete Leveling, we’ve perfected the process of returning concrete to its initial level position, and we’re able to do it in a way that’s far faster and much less expensive than removing old concrete and pouring brand-new concrete.
Here’s how it works:
- Small holes, only a single inch in diameter, are drilled into the sunken concrete block at strategic locations.
- Environmentally friendly slurry is made primarily from a limestone aggregate concrete mixture and water then pumped into the holes. Any voids created by erosion or soil compaction will be filled by the slurry, and the block will begin to rise. While the slurry flows under the slab, it will exert even pressure on the slab while it rises. Due to the placement of the drilled holes and careful application of the slurry injected into each hole, the block can be precisely raised to its final position.
- The holes are filled with a non-shrinking grout. It traps the slurry below to solidify and leaves the surface of the block looking virtually new.
This process can be 80% less expensive than new concrete replacement, and it works beautifully on walkways, floors, driveways, patios, virtually any concrete surface you can name.
