What Causes Uneven Concrete?

Uneven concrete can be a serious problem for Durham property owners. Not only is it unsightly, but it can also create tripping hazards and cause damage to vehicles and equipment that are driven over it. Here at Regional Foundation & Crawl Space Repair, we have worked on hundreds of Durham area homes and businesses, to lift, level, and restore concrete slabs. If you are tired of dealing with your uneven concrete, our team of Durham concrete leveling experts is here to help.

There are a few common causes of uneven concrete that everyone should be aware of. Whether you are concerned about your driveway or patio at home, or your warehouse floors at work, one or more of these factors is likely contributing to their damage:

  • Soil issues, such as improperly compacted soil, soil erosion, and soil subsidence can cause concrete to settle unevenly over time.
  • Poor installation, including improper mixing, inadequate reinforcement, and insufficient curing time can also lead to problems down the line.
  • Heavy loads from foot traffic and vehicles can compress the concrete and cause it to settle unevenly. Additional materials may be needed to reinforce the concrete or limit the weight placed on it.
  • Extreme temperature changes can cause concrete to expand and contract, leading to cracks and uneven settling. Protecting concrete from temperature extremes can help prevent these issues.
  • Water damage weakens concrete, making it more prone to settling. Applying sealant or protective coatings can help prevent water damage.

How to Fix Uneven Concrete

Thankfully, in many cases, uneven concrete slabs can be fixed with a simple technique—PolyLevel®. Our Durham concrete leveling team relies on this innovative method for lifting and leveling concrete slabs into an optimal position.

Polyurethane foam concrete leveling is a popular method for correcting uneven concrete surfaces. The foam is injected into the concrete through small holes, expanding and filling any gaps or voids underneath. This method is quick, efficient, and cost-effective, and can be used on a variety of surfaces, including driveways, sidewalks, and patios. It also minimizes disruption to the surrounding area and can be completed in a matter of hours.
