3 Signs You Need Concrete Repair, Lexington-Fayette Northeast, Kentucky

Concrete is one of the most versatile, cost-effective building materials on the market today. It solidifies foundations, stabilizes structures, and is commonly used for walkways, driveways, basements, garage floors, and porches. Make sure your residence remains in good condition by recognizing when you need concrete repair and following up with routine care and maintenance.

3 Indicators You Need Concrete Repair

1. Sunken Concrete

Soil changes underneath your slabs can cause them to sink. The unevenness can be dangerous to walk on and compromise your foundation. If you notice this issue, ask your concrete repair service professionals about subjacking. This concrete lifting process restores your slab to its original height, which is more cost-effective than replacement.

2. Cracks

This damage also comes from problems with soil, particularly if you go through varying periods of drought and heavy rainfall. Professionals recommend stabilizing the structure with steel piering. Contractors will attach steel brackets and drive a steel pier through the supporting beams, creating permanent stability for your foundation.

3. Pooling Water

If stagnant water remains on your concrete walkway or driveway after heavy rain, it may be due to improper drainage. These structures usually require sealcoating, but it may wear off over time. Ask your contractor to conduct an inspection to see whether you need spot repairs or have to reseal the entire structure.
