The concrete used to create porches can be repaired through an innovative process we offer at Concrete Uprising.
Porches are great additions to residential properties, offering space to sit outdoors and relax when the weather is pleasant. Here in the Raleigh, North Carolina area, locals especially enjoy their porches during the spring and fall seasons. However, the concrete used to create a porch may start to settle and crack through normal use. The ground beneath a porch is rarely properly compacted because the equipment needed to compact the dirt can’t be elevated onto a raised platform. At Concrete Uprising, we work closely with homeowners whose porches have settled. In fact, we’ve worked on porches that have been poured a few years ago as well as those that have been part of the structure for decades.
When a porch begins to settle, it creates a space between the siding and the concrete slab. This is a problem because rainwater will start to drain in that space, potentially causing significant damage to the foundation slab. Foundation repairs can cost thousands of dollars, so it’s a problem you want to avoid at all costs.
The concrete used to create porches can be repaired through an innovative process we offer at Concrete Uprising. We use several pounds of structural poly resin foam that we can inject beneath the damaged sections and lift up the concrete. This process adds very minimal weight to your porch, but provides the stability and protection needed. If you’d like an estimate on concrete repair for porches, reach out to our team members today.
