To Grind Or to Raise? First Grinding....
Do this only when the concrete has already been heaved or when raising cannot happen.
You can see the texture and aesthetics have changed. It adds character to you property and is sometimes done as an ornamental feature.
Now for the Concrete Raising...
You may have noticed your sidewalk has separated and become uneven. This is a common problem and the result of settling underneath the concrete or, perhaps, tree roots raising the high side. Most people look at this problem and consider the trouble and expense of replacing the sidewalk and do nothing about the problem.
There is a cheap and easy solution to this problem. Many people look at replacing the concrete and think about all of the mess, time-consumed and expense. The alternative that I offer is not messy, offers virtually uninterrupted use, is the most environmentally friendly option, and can be done at almost any time with no landscape disruption.
The alternative that I offer is referred to by several names. The most common are concrete jacking, mud jacking, grout jacking and slab jacking. The piece of concrete that is lower will be raised so that there is no longer a difference in height. This is called concrete jacking.
The process consists of drilling a 1 inch hole and pumping a cement mixture under the slab until the concrete slab is raised to the appropriate level. The hole that was drilled is repaired when the process is complete and will closely match the color of the other concrete around it. Often times more than one hole must be drilled and the entire process is the same with each hole.
When the job is completed the work area will be left clean and the concrete that has been lifted is less likely to settle again because the void beneath it has been filled.
This process can be done to patios and driveways or foundations of storage sheds, as well as the sidewalks.
The cost is approximately 1/3 the cost of replacing the concrete, which offers the flexibility to get the work done sooner and reducing the chance of someone tripping and falling.
