Conditions where outdoor concrete has already begun to sink is not uncommon in Maryland 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.
Maryland, also home to the Chesapeake Bay, hosts a variety of soil types, ranging in density and load-bearing capacities. Maryland's topography ranges East to West from sandy dunes to marshlands to rolling hills to mountains.
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 Maryland 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 Maryland contractors are trained and to provide a free estimate to solve your sinking concrete problem.

I saw DryZone's company truck on another job and asked for an estimate as well. Great estimate. The clean up was excellent! Josh did a great job explaining everything and was straight to the point of what I needed. Josh really stood out to me and the whole team with him. They were all very nice and easy to talk to. Great team work! I would definitely hire them again and recommend DryZone to anyone.

Project Location: Killarney Ct, Phoenix, MD 21131
Comment: I have a cement patio that is lined by our home and the garage on 3 sides. The side along the garage has a couple of cracks. there is a section that seems to be sinking towards the garage and rising on the cracked end. I am guessing water erosion of the soil underneath is causing the problem. I do not plan to replace the patio and this seems like a solution to fix the problem. Thanks for your help.
