Concrete Lifting Problem Signs

Concrete is the strongest part of any property, but damage is bound to occur over time despite its strength. As the surrounding environment changes, concrete problem signs will start to appear in the form of cracks, discoloration, and uneven settling.

Common Concrete Problem Signs

Early detection of common concrete problem signs is the most effective way to prevent costly concrete repairs down the road. If you notice any of the following on your property, you can count on the team at Foundation Support Specialists to identify the underlying problem and implement an effective solution.

Cracked Concrete

Concrete can support more weight than most building materials but isn’t very strong under uneven forces. Both the underlying clay soil and the concrete itself expand and contract due to the changing environmental conditions. When this happens, cracks appear and leave you with an unappealing and dangerous concrete surface. Concrete cracks pose a tripping hazard and, when severe enough, can even cause damage to your vehicle. If your concrete has surface cracks, the team at Foundation Support Specialists has the concrete crack repair service you need.

Foundation Support Specialists in Austin offers concrete lifting and leveling for sidewalks, patios, and driveways.

Unlevel Steps

Steps are one of the first things to exhibit concrete problem signs. The clay soil in central and south Texas expands and contracts, leaving property owners with sunken, cracked, and unlevel stairs. Aside from the apparent tripping hazard, recessed stairs can exert forces and cause additional damage to the foundation or framing of the rest of your building. Wooden steps may need to be rebuilt, but if you have concrete stairs, we can save them with our signature concrete lifting service.

Uneven Concrete

Concrete typically becomes uneven when the subsoil expands and contracts. In the best-case scenario, the concrete will stay intact but separate at the joints. However, cracks will likely develop if the lifting or sinking occurs in the middle of the slab. Either way, uneven concrete sidewalks, driveways, patios, or garage floors pose a safety risk and should be repaired as soon as possible.
