Concrete settlement is a common problem for residential and commercial properties in Hawaii. Sunken cracked concrete walkways, lanais, driveways, steps and indoor concrete flooring don't get better on their own. They become serious safety hazards and should be addressed quickly to avoid further sinking. Lifting concrete back to its initial level will restore its usability and preserve your property value.

Understanding how concrete in Hawaii sinks
Concrete sinks and cracks as a result of shifting soils, a weak soil base, or erosion - and sometimes more than one factor is at fault. Soils in Hawaii range in density, composition, and load-bearing capacities. When the weight above the soil exceeds the soil below, the soil settles. Clay elements in the soil expand and shrink with changes in the water content in the soil. During warmer, drier periods, this process causes gaps or voids under your concrete. A heavy concrete slab above settled soil or voids will start to sink and crack, often unevenly.
Reasons for Cracked Concrete Slabs
- Weak initial soils unable to support weight
- Erosion over time
- Shrinking and expanding soils
- Moisture issues in soil
Solutions for Sunken Concrete in HI
Alternative methods for repairing and raising concrete slabs include full concrete replacement and a technique called "mud jacking.” Mud jacking entails creating a thick slurry to fill in gaps underneath sunken concrete. Both approaches are costly, time-consuming, disruptive to your property, and add more weight above the compacting soil.
