American Waterworks provides services for sinking and uneven concrete throughout southeastern Minnesota, including greater Rochester and St. Paul. They are also available in western Wisconsin, and northern Iowa including Winneshiek, Allamakee, and Fayette counties.
Have you noticed treacherous cracks in your sidewalk, sinking sections of your driveway, or tilting concrete steps at your home? The changing seasons of Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin lead to soil erosion and weak soil base, which can cause the issue you're seeing. Luckily, PolyLevel, NexusPro and SealantPro.
Conditions where outdoor concrete has already begun to sink is not uncommon in North Dakota 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.
North Dakota, also known as The Peace Garden State, hosts a variety of soil types, ranging in density and load-bearing capacities. From the Great Plains to the Badlands, the soil is fertile and supports a large agricultural industry.
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 North Dakota 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 North Dakota contractors are trained and to provide a free estimate to solve your sinking concrete problem.
