Concrete settlement is a common problem for residential and commercial properties in Delaware. 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. The amount of clay in Delaware soils ranges widely, from heavy clay content in Kent and New Castle counties to pockets of clay soils in other counties (University of Delaware). As gardeners know, clay absorbs moisture in the ground. When moisture dries up, the clay in the soil shrinks, causing voids. Heavy concrete will shift and sink over these voids. Anytime the weight above the soil exceeds the soil below, the soil will compact and settle. When concrete begins to sink, it often does so unevenly, leading to uneven walkways and concrete pathways (pool decks, patios, steps).
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.
