Alpine is known for our beautiful homes and businesses, but when the concrete starts sinking into the ground a lot more than your curb-appeal is at risk.

Uneven concrete looks bad, but when it’s buried under fallen leaves and snow, it becomes a trip hazard and if someone falls, the property owner is at risk. Landmark Lifting is here to help keep your property safe and attractive. Our team is based here and we handle the concrete lifting in Alpine Utah, and regardless of the time of year, we’ll make your home or property safe to walk around.

Why does Concrete Sink?

Concrete sinks when voids open underground. These holes are usually caused by combining dirt of different densities are combined during construction. When the dirt is under the pressure of a concrete slab, the ground starts settling, especially if there’s been erosion. Both rain and snow can seep beneath the concrete to wash away the looser dirt, but this isn’t usually the reason for erosion. The most common reason for the ground to settle and concrete to sink are broken underground water pipes. The water washes away loose dirt right out from under the concrete.

How to Repair Sunken Concrete

There are 2 types of repairs for sunken concrete:

  1. Breaking up, removing and re-pouring the concrete slab

  2. Raising the concrete slab back into its original position

The first option is expensive, difficult and time-consuming because the concrete has to be entirely broken up, removed. Then, the hole needs to be filled and tamped down before it can be framed in for the new concrete to be poured. The concrete will need to cure for weeks if the weather is warm enough. It can quickly become a bigger hassle to get around than the sunken concrete was.

The second option is what we recommend and it only takes a few hours!

1

DRILL

A pattern of dime-sized holes is drilled through the sunken concrete slabs.
2

LIFT

Insert an air-tight tube, attach a hose from our pressurized injection system and inject our eco-friendly polyurethane expanding foam.
3

PATCH

The tubes are removed and we patch the drill holes with cement. You're cement will be able to bare weight immediately!
