Why You Should Have Your Concrete Professionally Lifted

Why You Should Have Your Concrete Professionally Lifted

Over the years, concrete slabs will slowly start to sink because of environmental factors like erosion and ground settling. These factors can lead to the concrete slabs on your property becoming uneven, which causes problems with safety and functionality. Luckily, we have a great solution! Polyurethane concrete levelling! You might think levelling a sunken and settled concrete slab is a DIY project, but concrete lifting is a more complex process than you may think. You might do more harm than good if you try to lift and level sunken concrete slabs without a professional. You should hire a professional for your concrete levelling project for several reasons. Keep reading to learn more!

Reasons to Hire a Concrete Lifting Professional 

The main reason to have a professional lift and level your sunken concrete slabs is to ensure that your concrete is lifted safely and with the best possible products and methods. The professionals at LVL Concrete Lifting have years of experience lifting concrete. Our specialty is polyurethane concrete levelling, also known as foam jacking or slab jacking. Polyurethane foam is the best way to lift sunken and settled concrete slabs, but it needs to be done by a professional. Polyurethane concrete lifting requires special equipment and a specific process to ensure that it is done safely and correctly. Most homeowners don't have access to the right products or equipment to lift sunken concrete slabs, which may end up causing more damage. You should always hire a professional to ensure your concrete slabs are lifted properly.

Save Time

Polyurethane concrete lifting might seem like a quick fix, and it is! But it's only quick and efficient if you know how to do it correctly. The experts at LVL don't suggest DIY concrete lifting because many things could potentially go wrong. For example, you could spend hours on a concrete levelling project that would take a professional half the time simply because you lack the experience and the right equipment for the job. As experts in the polyurethane concrete lifting method, we can lift and level sunken slabs back in as little as a day! Smaller jobs like driveways can be completed in just a few hours! Our expertise will save you time and ensure the job is done correctly.

Add Value and Curb Appeal

When polyurethane concrete levelling is done correctly, it will add significant curb appeal and value to your property. A properly repaired walkway, driveway or patio will enhance curb appeal and make your home more attractive to potential buyers. This is an excellent benefit if your home is in an older neighbourhood where many properties have sunken or settled walkways and driveways. Having your concrete slabs lifted professionally will also help with resale value because polyurethane concrete lifting will help prevent further sinking and settling over time. 

Save Money on Products and Equipment

Our polyurethane concrete lifting process is a cost-effective solution for homeowners and business owners with sunken and settled concrete slabs. You may think that taking on a concrete levelling project on your own is cheaper, but the opposite is true. From the cost of purchasing or renting tools and materials to the time it takes to complete the job, and the cleanup, hiring a professional would be much more cost-effective. 

Avoid Mistakes

If your concrete is repaired incorrectly, it will not function or look the way it should. Concrete lifting mistakes can become expensive to fix if it is not done correctly. The majority of the concrete lifting and levelling products you can purchase for DIY repairs are not permanent solutions. This means your concrete slab will likely sink again and could be further damaged and need to be replaced entirely. When you hire LVL for your concrete lifting project, you will not have to worry about missteps along the way. The professionals at LVL know how to lift your sunken concrete slabs right the first time. 

Prevent Further Damage

For all of our concrete lifting and levelling projects, we get to the root of why the slab was sinking or settling in the first place. We don't offer quick fixes; we provide long-term solutions that last. Polyurethane foam is a generally permanent solution to sunken concrete slabs. Polyurethane foam is resistant to the elements and hydrophobic, so it will not break down over time. Polyurethane foam will also help prevent further damage to your concrete slabs, making it the ideal solution for concrete lifting and levelling projects.
