If you've noticed cracks or uneven concrete surfaces around your home and live in South Texas, Baird Foundation Repair is your local, trusted solution.
As the oldest foundation repair contractor in the greater San Antonio area, Baird Foundation Repair has been providing quality foundation repair services since the early 1960s. Baird offers the revolutionary technology of the PolyLevel system. PolyLevel lifts and levels concrete slabs of sidewalks, stairs, driveways, patios, and more using a lightweight, waterproof material that lasts longer than slab jacking techniques.
Conditions where outdoor concrete has already begun to sink is not uncommon in Texas and is often the result of shifting or a weak soil base or erosion. It causes driveways, sidewalks, walkways, concrete steps or patio areas to become tripping hazards and can effect property value.
Texas, also known as The Lone Star State, hosts a variety of soil types, ranging in density and load-bearing capacities. The diverse landscapes is a mix of deserts, prairies, grasslands, forests and the coastlines.
Soil in any environment can change, however. When the weight above the soil exceeds the soil below, the soil will compact and settle. Clay and silt can also cause soil to compact when it becomes dry. Regardless of the reason, once soil becomes compact, heavy concrete above the soil will sink and crack. It's a gravity thing!
While it is a very noticeable problem, with the right contractor, it can have a very simple solution.
Previously, sinking concrete was repaired by a technique called "mud jacking" that uses a thick slurry to fill in the gap underneath the sunken concrete. While effective, it is not the most efficient way to solve the problem, and adds more weight above the compacting soil.
Today, select contractors in Texas are trained and to provide a better alternative to mud jacking. PolyLevel is a less intrusive, lighter weight solution that doesn't add more weight to the problem.
If you are seeing signs of sinking concrete on your property, have a contractor to provide the PolyLevel alternative to mud jacking take a look at it. The following Texas contractors are trained and to provide a free estimate to solve your sinking concrete problem.
