What Causes Uneven and Cracked Concrete?

Many elements can cause a concrete slab in your home to become uneven and cracked. These include poor drainage, moisture, pressure, and growing tree roots. Not only does cracked concrete kill your home’s curb appeal, but it is also a trip hazard for you, your family, or your guests.

In several cases, replacing the entire concrete slab isn’t necessary. We have developed different concrete leveling techniques, saving you money and time.

What is Street Creep and Do I Have It?

Street Creep is just like it sounds. It happens when the concrete from the street begins to “creep” towards, and put pressure against, the driveway.

You are at a higher risk of damage from street creep if you have an attached garage. This can damage the foundation of your garage, increasing the likelihood of damage to the primary structure’s foundation, too.
