Concrete settlement is a common problem for residential and commercial properties in South Dakota. 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 South Dakota 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 well and contract with changes in ground moisture. While Clay County was not named after the clay in local soils, the state does in fact have clay-heavy soils, including the official state soil, "Houdek," which is made up of brown clay loam below the surface layer. When the clay elements in your soil shrink and compact during warmer, drier periods, they form voids, pulling down heavy concrete slabs. Concrete will also sink if the original soil base was weak when your concrete sidewalk, driveway or patio floor was installed. Understanding the reason for sunken concrete is the first step to repairing it long-term.
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.
