Get Great Looking Concrete In 4 Simple Steps
Getting great looking concrete and eliminating tripping hazards around your property is simple and can often be completed in as little as a day. Learn about our poly injection concrete lifting process below.
Step 1: Drill Small Holes
Holes are drilled in strategic locations around the sunken concrete slab.
Step 2: Lift The Concrete
Our team will then inject a specially formulated expanding foam underneath the concrete slab to raise it back to level.
Step 3: Patch Drill Holes
After the concrete is lifted our team patches the holes with a non-shrinking grout.
Step 4: Clean and Enjoy
Once the grout is dry our team will spray the concrete off and clean up the newly leveled area for you to use.

Understanding the Causes of Sinking Concrete
Concrete settling can be attributed to a variety of factors, each contributing to the shifting and unevenness of concrete slabs. One primary cause is the insufficient or improper compaction of the base material before pouring the concrete. This oversight can lead to the slab further compacting the base post-curing, resulting in rapid settlement. Additionally, climate plays a significant role. For instance, the extreme cold experienced during Michigan winters causes slabs to expand and heave due to frost, leading to uneven settling once the ground thaws. Conversely, in hot and dry conditions, expansive clay soils can shrink, causing the slabs to settle, and then shift unevenly when they re-expand with moisture.
Erosion also significantly impacts concrete stability. Factors such as damaged water lines, improperly positioned downspouts, and heavy rainfall can wash away the underlying base materials, leading to slab settlement. In environments with heavy machinery or traffic, the constant vibrations and loads can compact the base underneath the concrete, causing the slabs to shift or settle.
