Concrete is heavy. When the soil beneath your concrete patio slabs is compromised, the concrete sinks. Cracks will form over time and the slabs will continue to sink. This deterioration can become dangerous, creating a tripping hazard that homeowners shouldn’t ignore.
Completing Fayetteville patio repairs includes determining why the concrete slabs failed. There are three main reasons why the soil base below the concrete might fail:
- Extra moisture in the soil causes it to expand. Adversely, when the soil dries out, shrinkage will occur. As the concrete passes through phases of expansion and shrinkage, it moves and shifts, leading to sunken concrete and the cracks you find on the surface.
- Heavy rainfall, snow melt, and unreliable plumbing can cause excess water to accumulate on your property. When large amounts of water find its way into the soil below your concrete patio, the water washes away the dirt. The concrete loses its stability and sinks into empty pockets.
- The soil around and under your home and patio should be properly compacted during construction. If the soil base is too loose, it won’t provide the support the concrete needs to remain flat and stable. The weight of the concrete slabs will cause the soil to compress. As it compresses, the concrete will sink.
