Before Replacing Your Concrete Consider Concrete Leveling

Share Post:

If you have an area of sidewalk, driveway, or even a patio or garage floor that is cracked, sunken or even broken, you may assume that replacing it is your only option.  Before you make the decision to replace the affected area of concrete, you should consider the option of concrete leveling. Instead of replacing the entire area of concrete, concrete leveling can repair just the damaged area for a fraction of the cost.  Detroit Concrete Leveling specializes in residential, commercial and industrial concrete leveling, a great alternative to replacing a damaged concrete slab. We offer high quality concrete leveling that leaves an area looking just like new.

Why Consider Concrete Leveling?

The concrete leveling process uses a limestone solution to fill in the recesses in broken or cracked concrete from underneath.  We use state of the art equipment and leveling techniques that ensure that your driveway, sidewalk or patio is properly restored.  Concrete leveling is affordable – at just ⅓ of the cost of replacing a concrete slab. In addition, it is environmentally friendly, does not make a big mess on your property, and can be completed in just a few short hours.  And, you do not have to worry that your new concrete will match your old – concrete leveling gives you better curb appeal and can even increase the value of your home.

It is very common for driveways, sidewalks, patios, and garage floors to settle over time in the dirt and sand, especially in our area.  Our weather shifts including wet weather, cold weather and extreme dry periods during the summer can cause cracking and uneven settlement on the concrete above. In addition to being an eyesore and even unwelcoming, concrete settling can also cause trip hazards, which can be a real issue for business owners or if you have frequent house guests.

Detroit Concrete Leveling can save you money by reducing trip hazards on your property.  We do that with our concrete leveling services.  We have been in business for more than forty years and have developed a great reputation with our customers because we are professional, committed to customer service, and dedicated to doing all we can to help you make your property safer and save money. Walkways, driveways, patios and garage floors can succumb to settling and weather-related degradation.  Over time, even the most solidly constructed concrete slabs can crack.  But our team knows how to fix the problems that occur with concrete driveways and walkways, and over time the repairs we perform will save you money.

How Does Concrete Leveling Work?

If you have tripping hazards on your property, contact us as soon as possible.  We can take care of the trip hazards so that you and your guests have clear walking paths.  Repairing those problems also helps to keep your property beautiful.  We do not recommend waiting until cracks become tripping hazards to address them.  We can also repair cracks before they become trip hazards.  Cracks tend to appear because of settling, and no crack will ever get better on its own.  If left to continue cracking to the point of becoming a trip hazard, your concrete could become an even greater safety risk.

Concrete leveling is a repair technique that inserts a limestone grout solution beneath your concrete.  Our advanced equipment pumps and pressurizes grout underneath your concrete; raising it to the perfect level, and filling all areas beneath to guarantee NO future problems. We can match the color so that you cannot notice the repair has been made.  Concrete leveling is environmentally friendly and takes as little as 24 hours before you can begin using the area like normal.  This process levels the area and repairs your sidewalk, driveway, patio or garage floor so that it is free from tripping hazards.

Repair your Concrete and Save Money

Detroit Concrete Leveling has made our business into one that our customers trust.  We have seen since we opened our doors in 1977 that concrete leveling improves the safety of homeowners’ properties.  Concrete leveling requires expertise, and repairing your cracked slabs is much less expensive than replacing them altogether.  Concrete leveling saves you money and reduces or eliminates trip hazards on your property.  Call us at 866-472-9033 today for more information.

When you find cracks and damage to a portion of your concrete sidewalk, driveway or parking lot, you may assume that the only way to complete the repairs is to replace the entire problematic area.  However, before you decide to replace your concrete, consider concrete leveling with Detroit Concrete Leveling.  Concrete leveling is a highly effective technique that can be used as an alternative to concrete replacement. Concrete leveling has many important benefits including:

  1. Less expensive: Concrete leveling costs approximately ⅓ of what it costs to replace the original area of concrete. Save yourself money with this process!
  2. Repairs take less time: Concrete replacement can take many days to complete. Concrete leveling is a simple procedure that corrects your uneven concrete surfaces by repairing the foundation underneath.  Concrete leveling can take a matter of hours, and generally traffic can resume on the concrete slab within 24 hours.
  3. Environmentally friendly: The concrete leveling process is very neat and clean and generates minimal waste, so it is much more environmentally friendly than replacing the concrete, which most often requires a trip to the landfill.
  4. Increased curb appeal: Replacing concrete can leave you with a mixture of concrete colors and textures that can look less polished and professional. Concrete leveling offers increased curb appeal and actually adds value to your home or business.
  5. Convenient and less disruptive: Because the process is quick, you and your guests will not have to deal with the disruption of a concrete replacement job. Concrete leveling takes just a matter of hours!

If you have any doubts about whether or not investing in concrete leveling can increase your property value, we hope you will take it from us, experts in the field since 1977.  We see property values rise all the time as a result of concrete leveling.  The equation is simple, really.  When concrete begins to show signs of settling, you start seeing cracks.  Before long, those cracks become worse and you are now dealing with tripping hazards.  If things get really bad, such as when settling and erosion underneath your concrete slabs is severe, your driveway or walkway may become unusable.  At best, your damaged slabs look like an eye-sore.  At worst, you could be dealing with a real safety problem.  Detroit Concrete Leveling specializes in professional concrete leveling – which is more effective and less expensive than replacing your concrete.

Concrete Solutions for your Property

When it comes time for assessors to look at and evaluate your property, they will make note of the condition of your entire property, including your concrete driveway, walkways and the foundation of your home.  If they are in poor condition, your property value will suffer as a result.  But just as concrete slabs that are in poor condition will decrease your property’s value, repairing those slabs with concrete leveling will increase your property’s value.  Our team can raise your sunken driveway, sidewalk, patio, stairs, garage floors, and basement floor.

If you are considering selling your home, prospective buyers will see the exterior of your property first.  And we all know what they say about making first impressions.  Your house’s first impression could make the difference between a potential buyer checking out the interior of your home and walking away before entering.  If they walk into your house, there is a chance that the work you have done to upgrade and clean the interior will impress that buyer enough to eventually make an offer.   But if your driveway or walkways create a poor first impression, all the work you have done to make the interior presentable and appealing will have been for naught.

Benefits of Concrete Leveling

Ultimately, there is no good reason NOT to invest in concrete leveling, and Detroit Concrete Leveling has been doing excellent work in helping people increase their property value since 1977.  Our concrete leveling process is quite simple and far less expensive than replacing concrete slabs altogether.  We drill small holes in the existing concrete and fill the holes so that the slabs return to their original levels. We fill the small injection holes and dye the filler to match the color of the slab and the entire process leaves the area neat and clean.  And when the process is complete, you will be able to feel good about the fact that you have taken a step toward increasing the value of your property.  We complete most jobs in a matter of hours.
