Replacing Your Concrete Slab is a Big Choice, See if Concrete Repair or Replacement is Right For You
If you have concrete damage on your sidewalk, driveway, or patio, it can be hard to tell if you need a complete replacement or a simple repair. It may not always be necessary for a replacement, which can save you time and money.
Total concrete replacement is an expensive, and lengthy process. As long as the structural integrity of the concrete slab is still in tact (nothing broken smaller than a 3 foot x 3 foot x 3 foot triangle), the option to lift the slab will be a more cost-effective and durable option. Lifting the concrete can quickly fix the problem and is much less expensive and time-consuming than a complete replacement.
If the concrete is crumbling, flaking, or has broken into many small pieces, the slab may be too far gone and may need to be replaced. If you have a sunken slab or uneven surface, lifting the concrete would be the best solution to fix the problem and create an even surface.
Concrete damage may occur on your driveway, sidewalk, or patio. If any of these areas are damaged, you may be responsible if someone gets hurt on your property. Many homeowners don’t realize that many cities put the responsibility of the sidewalk maintenance on the homeowner. If your sidewalk is uneven and someone trips and hurts themselves, you may be responsible.
