Concrete settlement is a common problem for residential and commercial properties in New Mexico. Sunken cracked concrete walkways, 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 New Mexico sinks
Concrete sinks and cracks as a result of shifting soils, a weak soil base, or erosion, sometimes all three. Soils in New Mexico range in density, composition, and load-bearing capacities. When the weight above the soil exceeds the soil below, the soil will compact and settle. Clay elements in the soil can cause the soil to shrink and compact during warmer, drier periods. New Mexico soils, including the state soil Penistaja, are made up of brown and yellow sandy clay loams below the surface level. Once these soil elements becomes compact, gaps appear in the soil. A heavy concrete slab above the soil will start to sink and crack over these voids and weaker soil base.
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 NM
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.
