Over time, concrete slabs will slowly begin to sink. This is due to factors like erosion, the gradual settling of the ground below and poor soil compaction when the slab was poured. This sinking and settling can cause the concrete slabs around your property to become uneven. This can cause problems with curb appeal, safety, and functionality. You might be looking for ways to fix your sunken and settled slabs and think, I can do this myself! It seems easy enough, right? While it may seem simple, concrete lifting and levelling is more complex than you think. If you try lifting and levelling sunken slabs yourself, you might do more harm than good. This is one of the many reasons you should hire a professional for your concrete lifting and levelling project. If you're wondering why hiring a concrete lifting and levelling professional is important, keep reading!
Reasons to Hire a Concrete Levelling Professional.
One of the main reasons to hire a concrete lifting professional is to ensure that your concrete is lifted safely, correctly and with the best possible products and methods. The concrete lifting experts at Sanremo Poly-Foam have years of experience lifting and levelling sunken concrete slabs. Our specialty is polyurethane concrete lifting, a fast, efficient and environmentally friendly way to return sunken slabs to their original position. Polyurethane foam is widely considered to be the best way to lift and level sunken concrete slabs, but the process needs to be performed by a professional. Polyurethane concrete lifting requires specific equipment and process to ensure it is done properly. Because most homeowners don't have access to the right products or equipment, it is essential to hire a professional.
Hiring a Professional Saves Money on Products and Equipment.
It is a common misconception that attempting to lift and level your sunken concrete slabs is cheaper than hiring a professional. By the time you've purchased or rented tools and materials and included the time it takes to complete the job and the cleanup, you will have spent far more than you would have if you had hired a professional. Our polyurethane concrete levelling method is a cost-effective solution for homeowners who need sunken and settled concrete slabs lifted.
Hiring a Professional Saves Time.
Concrete lifting and levelling is a fast and efficient process, but only if you know how to do it correctly. At Sanremo, we don't suggest attempting DIY concrete levelling because many things could go wrong. You might spend hours or even days on a concrete levelling project that would take a professional a few minutes because you don't have the right tools or experience. We can lift and level sunken and settled slabs back into their original position in as little as a day. For smaller jobs, we can be done in just a few hours!
Hire a Professional to Avoid Mistakes.
If your concrete slabs are lifted incorrectly, they won't function or look the way they should. Concrete lifting mistakes can be very expensive in terms of time and money. The majority of the concrete lifting products you can purchase for DIY projects are not permanent solutions. This means your slab will likely sink again, could be damaged further, and need to be replaced altogether. When you hire Sanremo for your concrete lifting and levelling project, you don't have to worry about mistakes along the way.
Hiring a Professional will Prevent Further Damage.
We get to the root of the problem for all of our concrete lifting and levelling projects. We offer long-term solutions that last; we never just cover up the damage. Polyurethane foam is generally a permanent solution to sunken and settled slabs. Polyurethane foam is resistant to the elements, so it is not concerned with breaking down over time. Polyurethane foam also helps prevent further damage to your concrete slabs, making it the perfect solution for sunken and settled concrete.
Concrete Lifting can Add Value and Curb Appeal.
When done right, concrete lifting can add significant curb appeal and value to your home. A correctly repaired sidewalk, patio or driveway will boost curb appeal and make your home more attractive. This is an excellent benefit if you live in an older neighbourhood where many properties have sunken or settled slabs. Having your concrete slabs lifted professionally will ensure your home is more desirable and can help with resale value because polyurethane concrete lifting helps prevent further deterioration.
