Why Does Concrete Become Uneven?

Weather and the elements play a huge role in why concrete begins to sink and become uneven. 

As most Texas homeowners know, drought is a big deal in the Lone Star state. For most of the year, we stay dry with very little rain, our yards turn brown and visible cracks in the ground start to appear. When this happens, the soil underneath and around your home dries up and begins to shrink due to the lack of moisture. Combined with the weight of your sidewalks or driveway, these concrete slabs will slowly start to sink and produce uneven and cracked concrete.

Inevitably, the rain comes again and the soil soaks it up. Similar to a sponge, the ground will start to expand and swell with the additional moisture. This then causes these same concrete slabs to heave and raise back up, possibly higher than it was originally.

With our Poly Pro X services in the San Antonio area, changing weather conditions are no longer an issue!

Poly Pro X; The Solution for Sinking Concrete

How it Works

Our process to stabilize concrete begins with a trained and experienced technician drilling 3/8” holes into the concrete. These holes are no bigger than the size of your thumb and allows us to pump a special polyurethane foam underneath, yet on top of the soil. As the foam is exposed to the air, it immediately starts to expand and harden filling the voids that the eroded soil left behind. Within minutes, you will be able to see the concrete slab lifting before your eyes!

Using other specialized equipment, FSS technicians are able to control the flow of foam to ensure we aren’t over-lifting the concrete or creating other issues. And that’s it! Usually in less than an hour, the concrete is weight-bearing again and ready to use. 

Once your concrete is re-stabilized, for added protection, our technicians can seal any cracks or joints to ensure moisture stays out from underneath your driveway, sidewalk and more for good.
