CONCRETE GRADING

MUDJACKING

Over time, concrete sidewalks and walkways can sink. Such sinking is not only unsightly but can also be dangerous. On sidewalks and walkways even a relatively small change in the surfaces between one panel and another can be hazardous to both children and adults.

Among the reasons for concrete sidewalk issues is the condition of the underlying soil. Soils that are rich in clay, such as the Houston area, take up more space and expand when they are mixed with water. This pressure causes sidewalk panels to expand, and cracks can result. In dry conditions, moisture content is reduced and this can result in settling issues.

In other cases, the soil on which your sidewalks were poured, might be inadequately compacted. Over time, tree roots may have grown and pushed up one or two of the panels. Additionally, inadequate drainage can cause moisture to gather and affect the sidewalk. The sooner the concrete surface is restored to its original level, the better for curb appeal and safety. You should not wait until the problem worsens before tending to it. Not only will the unsafe situation present liability concerns, but you are likely to incur increased repair costs by waiting.

To restore concrete sidewalks or walkways to their original level position, two major approaches are available. One method is to replace the concrete panels, a process that can be expensive and time consuming. First, the old concrete needs to be broken up and removed. After that, the ground needs to be properly prepared for the new concrete to be poured. Then the concrete needs to be placed on the surface and allowed to dry. This method is wasting the original concrete, that in most cases is perfectly usable.

The other method of sidewalk & walkway repair is less expensive, takes a relatively short time, and proves just as effective as replacing the concrete with new panels. This process involves lifting the concrete, aligning it, and restoring it to its original level and condition. Lifting a concrete sidewalk that has sunken involves raising the sunken panel, building up the base under the panel restoring it back to its original position. Our process removes the tripping hazard, no visible damage to the sidewalk or yard, costs about 50% less than replacement, the repair is completed in hours and usable right away. Plus, our repair process has been approved by many HOA’s throughout Houston.
