Concrete settlement is a common problem for residential and commercial properties in Rhonde Island. Sunken cracked concrete walkways, driveways, steps and indoor concrete flooring don't get better on their own. They become serious safety hazards and should be addressed quickly to avoid further sinking. Lifting concrete back to its initial level will restore its usability and preserve your property value.

Concrete sinks and cracks as a result of shifting soils, a weak soil base, or erosion, sometimes all three. Soils in Rhode Island range in density, composition, and load-bearing capacities. When the weight above the soil exceeds the soil below, the soil will compact and settle. Clay elements in the soil can cause the soil to shrink and compact during warmer, drier periods. Once soil becomes compact, gaps appear in the soil. A heavy concrete slab above the soil will start to sink and crack over these voids and weaker soil base.
Alternative methods for repairing and raising concrete slabs include full concrete replacement and a technique called "mud jacking.” Mud jacking entails creating a thick slurry to fill in gaps underneath sunken concrete. Both approaches are costly, time-consuming, disruptive to your property, and add more weight above the compacting soil.

Project Location: Warwick, RI 02886
Comment: Interested in raising the back edge of an 18ft X 8ft patio slab. I'm not sure if the edge is separate from or free of the garage slab. Over the years the earth under the slab has been eroded, so I think that the voids under the slab are significant. Even if the slab cannot be restored to its original elevation, getting foam under it might fix it in place and also stop the house from sinking. Also, I'm not sure if this slab can survive lifting as there are hairline superficial cracks. I don't think that these go through.
