Detroit Concrete Leveling is an excellent choice for business owners and homeowners who are searching for a reputable, reliable, timely, and professional concrete repair contractor who wants to do good work for you and save you money.  If you own a business with a parking lot for which you are responsible, or if you have a driveway at your home that has fallen prey to settling, contact our team today at Detroit Concrete Leveling.  We stand behind our work which should provide you with the assurance of an affordable concrete repair process.

Why Raise Concrete?

Far too often, concrete contractors recommend full replacement of concrete walkways, driveways, and parking lot slabs because there is more work involved and, therefore; more money to be made.  But Detroit Concrete Leveling is different than most concrete contractors.  Not only does Detroit Concrete Leveling guarantee the quality of its work, it guarantees your satisfaction.  Furthermore, leveling concrete instead of replacing it can cost as little as one-third of what it would cost to replace your concrete slabs. And the only way to accomplish that is by establishing a hard-earned reputation for fair and honest dealing with its customers.  We only use limestone in our concrete leveling process.  Many other contractors use dirt or sand, which can erode and cause your concrete slabs to develop the same problems all over again.  Concrete leveling takes a matter of hours, and leaves you able to use the area very quickly, without a big mess to clean up.  In addition, there is no wasteful mess!

The Concrete Leveling Process

When slabs of concrete begin to settle and become uneven, it is due to air pockets underneath that portion of the slab, and the effect can cause cracks in the concrete and unevenness from slab to slab.  If the situation is severe enough, it can create tripping hazards that can cause injury.  Concrete leveling is a repair process for concrete that involves drilling small holes into the sunken slabs of concrete and injecting a slurry of limestone into the holes.  By injecting the slurry underneath the affected concrete slabs, the air pockets underneath get filled, and the resulting pressure lifts the slabs back to the way they were when they were first made and closer to their original grading.  We fill and dye the small holes we make to inject the slurry so that the end result is that you can barely see where the holes were drilled.  Over time, the dye weathers and fades to the same color as the concrete or brick where we did the injecting.

Detroit Concrete Leveling takes pride in doing nothing but excellent work.  And we have been doing concrete leveling work since 1977, so we are confident in our ability to serve you in the way you expect.  If you are ready to take the first step of getting your concrete slabs level, contact us today at 866-472-9033.

Concrete leveling is a process that involves lifting sunken concrete slabs or surfaces back to their original position. It is also known as slab jacking or mudjacking. Here’s a step-by-step explanation of how the process of concrete leveling works:

  1. Inspection: A professional concrete leveling contractor will first inspect the affected area to determine the cause and extent of the damage. This will involve checking for any underlying issues, such as soil erosion, settling or poor drainage, which may have contributed to the sinking of the concrete surface. If the assessment results in concrete leveling being a suitable solution, a price estimate is provided for the repairs and the work can begin.
  2. Drilling: The next step is to drill small holes into the sunken concrete surface. These holes will serve as access points for the injection of the leveling material.
  3. Injection: A specialized leveling material, such as a mixture of limestone and water, or a polyurethane foam, is then injected through the drilled holes. The material will fill the voids beneath the concrete surface using hydraulic pressure or expansive foam, lifting the concrete back to its original position.
  4. Patching: Once the concrete has been lifted, the area is cleaned up and the holes are patched with a compatible material, usually concrete or a specialized patching compound, to match your existing concrete as best as possible.

Overall, the process of concrete leveling is a quick and cost-effective way to repair sunken concrete surfaces, preventing further damage and improving the safety and appearance of your property.
