Why does concrete sink in Louisiana?
You can blame it on Louisiana soils, many of which are rich in clay. The state soil, named Ruston, is made up of red clay loam (USDA) and found in woodland areas, while other clay-heavy soils are found in the Gulf Coast areas and along the Mississippi River. Clayey soils are prone to expand and shrink with changes in ground moisture and temperature. When the clay elements shrink, voids form. As voids form, the soil is unable to support the concrete and it will begin to sink, often unevenly. Your concrete will also sink if the soil under the concrete was too weak initially to support the weight of the concrete slabs and the loads placed on the concrete (furnishings, vehicles, equipment). This process is called “concrete settlement.” When researching ways to lift and level your concrete, it's important to consider the underlying causes to ensure a long-term solution.
Reasons for Cracked Concrete Slabs
- Weak initial soils unable to support weight
- Erosion over time
- Shrinking and expanding soils
- Moisture issues in soil
What concrete problems does PolyLevel fix?
Residential concrete is an ideal material for walkways in and around your Louisiana home and for outdoor living spaces, like sunrooms and porches. When that concrete settles or cracks, it stops serving its purpose and may become unsafe. Cracked, uneven concrete is also unattractive, detracting from the beauty and value of your home. Homeowners in Louisiana seek out PolyLevel, looking for the best method for sidewalk raising, lifting concrete slabs back to their original position, and addressing the first signs of concrete settlement in their driveway, pool deck or interior concrete flooring.
PolyLevel is a fast, effective concrete repair solution for lifting and leveling concrete slabs all around the home:
- Driveways and garage aprons
- Sidewalks and walkways
- Concrete steps or stoops
- Concrete patio and porch areas
- Pool decks and sunrooms
- Basement concrete slabs
How to Choose a Concrete Repair Company in Louisiana
In addition to looking for a Louisiana concrete repair company who serves your town or region, you want to know that they understand the causes for failing concrete and have concrete repair solutions that are effective, long-term, and affordable.
A Concrete Solution You Can Trust
PolyLevel is a two-part expanding foam solution effective in many concrete lifting applications, in both residential and commercial settings. Concrete repair alternatives to PolyLevel include complete concrete replacement and “mud jacking,” an industrial application that uses a thick cement slurry to fill in the gap underneath sunken concrete. Both of these techniques are excessive when fixing a set of stairs that has pulled away from the home, or raising a patio concrete slab back to its original level. These alternative methods are disruptive, time-consuming, costly, and don’t address the soil-related issues that cause concrete settlement. Using foam to raise sunken concrete is the best solution for many concrete problems because it is fast, effective, less disruptive to property, and affordable. In addition, PolyLevel is a less intrusive process for lifting concrete that doesn't add more weight to the problem.
A Contractor You Can Trust
Your local Louisiana PolyLevel contractor is an independent company supported by a national concrete repair network. In addition to reading reviews, check out past work by your local concrete contractor. A before-and-after picture showing the results of lifting and leveling an uneven concrete slab is worth 1,000 words!
The final step in searching for a contractor who can fix your home’s sunken or cracked concrete is to get an idea of the cost involved in fixing your concrete. After inspecting your sunken concrete, your local contractor should be able to propose a solution and provide a written estimate for repair costs.
