As you probably know, the name of our company is A-1 Concrete Leveling and Foundation Repair. And although it’s not in our name, we’re also the concrete repair specialists you can count on when you encounter a problem with your concrete. There’s nothing worse than seeing a crack slowly developing in your sidewalk, driveway, or garage floor. Fortunately for you, our team of experts can help to make your issue a thing of the past!
Perhaps you’ve considered having your old concrete removed and new concrete poured. That’s one option, sure, but the truth of the matter is that we can often accomplish the same results for a fraction of the price you’d pay to pour new concrete. The process we utilize is much faster and it can return your concrete to its original position easily, saving you time, money, and headaches in the process. At the end of the day, that’s a win/win situation.
How Does Concrete Repair and Leveling Work?
The idea of repairing your concrete can seem like foreign concept if you’ve never heard about it before, but our team of experts is here to make it easy to understand. To put it simply, what we do is drill a small hole in a strategically chosen location. Next, we pump a special mixture into those holes; this causes the block in question to rise.
We have this step down to a science and our care and attention to detail means that we can raise the area in question to the perfect position. Once that’s all taken care of, we seal the holes with a non-shrinking grout and you’re left with a section of concrete that looks practically new. It really doesn’t get much better than that. Perhaps best of all is the fact that the pumping compound we use is environmentally friendly so you don’t have to worry about any adverse effects down the line.
Here’s a Quick Breakdown of What We Do in Three Simple Steps
- 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.
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.
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.

About Our Environmentally Friendly Slurry
At A-1 Concrete Leveling and Foundation Repair, we’re proud to say that we take advantage of all natural products. We mentioned it above, but we utilize an environmentally friendly slurry to fill the gap underneath your concrete and help to level things out. Why do we do it that way, you ask? It’s a great question and we’ve written extensively about the A-1 process vs. foam that other companies tend to use.
Here’s the simplified version: there are a number of benefits to using limestone. For one, it’s an all-natural product that won’t cause any damage to the rest of your property. It’s also useful because it doesn’t add any weight to the base which is often the main cause for further sinking. The real kicker, however, is that it spreads much better than the polyurethane foam that many other companies use. Limestone flows well which means that you don’t end up with an uneven fill level and more problems down the road. In short, we use the materials that we have chosen because they’re the best. It’s as simple as that.
As we mentioned above, you can read about more of the benefits of using limestone, but at the end of the day, our goal is always to provide our customers with the best product. When we undertake concrete repair on your home or business, we want the work we do to stand the test of time. It’s this principle that drives every decision that we make. We’re constantly striving to provide our customers with the best value for their money and we think that we have come up with the perfect solution–one that’s meant to last.
