Concrete settlement is a common problem for residential and commercial properties in Maine. 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. With over 100 types of soils in Maine, the composition and strength of those soils varies across the state. As any gardener knows, clay absorbs moisture and the clay content in the soil under your concrete also expands and shrinks with the moisture content in the ground. A heavy concrete slab above the soil will start to sink and crack over the voids formed when your soil shrinks or contracts. In addition, when concrete settles over a weak soil base, it often settles, or sinks, unevenly. The result? Cracked, sunken concrete slabs.
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.
