We use an innovative approach to resolving concrete settling concerns for patios.
The most common place for patios to sag and sink over time is up against the house. The process of installing concrete patios isn’t as involved as other concrete foundations because these areas are not intended to hold up a structure. Hence, putting in support and compacting it properly often does not happen. Since the installation of the footers is up at the house, this process disturbs the soil, making it more susceptible to settling. The problem with this is that when this area does settle, rainwater then flows up against the house and can get down under the foundation. Not taking care of patios that have exhibited this sinking situation can put your home’s structural integrity at risk and lead to a costly restoration invoice.
At Concrete Uprising, we serve the Burlington, North Carolina area with an innovative approach to resolving this type of issue with patios. Rather than use traditional concrete leveling methods that serve to exacerbate the problem, such as adding more concrete above or injected under, we use a specialized poly-resin material. This lighter material is strong enough to hold up the concrete when injected under it, without adding excessive weight. Our process gives you a long-term solution instead of a temporary fix.
If you have been fearing that your patio is going to need to be torn out and replaced, we recommend calling us first so we can take a look at it. We have salvaged quite a few patios in our day, both at residential and commercial properties, so if we cannot fix it, nobody can.
