Does your home have sunken concrete, uneven surfaces, and tripping hazards on driveways, sidewalks, walkways, concrete steps, or patios? Even houses with the highest quality standards and materials can still experience certain damages out of the property owner's control. Plus, outdoor concrete usually contains multiple slabs. Over time, the slabs settle into the ground, creating uneven surfaces and trip hazards.
Sinking outdoor concrete is common in Florida and is from shifting or a weak soil base or erosion. But there is no reason to worry — sinking concrete may be a noticeable problem, but LRE Foundation Repair offers a quick and effective solution with the PolyLevel® polymer injection system!

Sinking concrete can turn sidewalks, driveways, and concrete floors into unattractive safety hazards. It may seem odd that such a sturdy surface, like a concrete slab, can sink. But it is frequent in most homes and can create unsightly and dangerous situations. It can also be a real problem if you are concerned about the liability of visitors tripping on your property, preparing your home for sale, or want to enjoy your home with your family and friends.
Although sidewalks are not always a part of your home, maintenance is usually the homeowner's responsibility in many cities. That means you could be at fault if someone gets hurt on a dangerous tripping hazard while walking on your sidewalk. To avoid these potential issues, consider getting your sidewalk fixed immediately.
The soil underneath the concrete slab is the main reason that concrete sinks. The soils support the concrete, so if they are not fully intact, they may shift and no longer support the heavy weight of the slab above. Soils expand and contract as they get wet and dry out, which creates voids underneath the concrete and causes slabs to settle further into the ground.
Don't let sinking concrete make a mess out of your home. Call LRE Foundation Repair to get an effective, long-lasting solution from our Tampa concrete leveling and lifting experts.
Trip hazards are around frequently used concrete surfaces in and outside of your home. These surfaces usually include multiple concrete slabs, creating a trip hazard whenever one slab sinks below the other, including driveways, sidewalks, and patios. That's why homeowners should periodically monitor these areas for any signs of concrete settlement.
If you notice these signs of concrete sinking, it could be a quick and easy fix to prevent further settling. If the problem gets ignored, the concrete could worsen over time, creating a bigger problem for you to fix.
Fortunately, there is a quick solution for fixing your home's trip hazards. LRE Foundation Repair is an experienced Greater Tampa concrete leveling and lifting contractor using PolyLevel® to lift your sunken concrete slabs back into place. So you can enjoy your driveway, sidewalk, or patio again without worry.
In the past, contractors relied on mudjacking, also known as slab jacking, concrete lifting, concrete raising, grout pumping, and slab leveling, to level concrete that had settled over time. This outdated method entailed pumping concrete slurry under the settled slab to raise it and hoping the settlement wouldn't continue.
With PolyLevel®, LRE Foundation Repair lifts concrete slabs to a level position with less weight and disruption than the mud jacking or slab jacking process. We inject a polyurethane foam system below the sunken slab. After, it expands and lifts the slab back to its original height.
