Causes of Sinking and Cracking Sidewalks
Sidewalks and walkways are designed to get stepped on constantly. The wear and tear they experience are relentless. While the concrete is able to hold up to that level of use, the supporting soil may not be up to the task.
When the ground underneath the concrete becomes weak, it can settle or erode. Heavy rains, rotted tree roots, and gutter runoff all contribute to weakened soil.
Weak soil cannot support heavy loads like concrete slabs, especially if voids have been created beneath the concrete. The concrete will sink and settle to fill empty pockets, leading to cracks and uneven surfaces.
How We Restore Your Sidewalk or Walkway
If your sidewalk or walkway is starting to sink or settle, you don’t have to get the concrete replaced. Instead, we drill small holes in the affected sections and inject high-density polyurethane foam underneath the concrete.
The polyurethane foam will rapidly expand and lift the concrete until it’s back to its original position. Installation is quick, and there’s no disruption to your landscape. No heavy equipment is required.
