There are a lot of things that can cause damage to pavements like driveways, sidewalks, and hardscaping. Some of these problems include erosion and settling of the soil. To repair these pavements and other hardscaping materials, concrete lifting techniques can be used to repair the damage. The following guide to concrete lifting will help you with the repairs that need to be done to your driveway, hardscaping, and more:
Repairing the Separation of Driveways That Often Happens Near the Entrance of the Garage
Driveways can separate at the foundation of your home near the garage. This is a problem that usually happens because the main area of the driveway is on fill soils, while the area near the garage may be partially supported by the foundation of your home. To correct this problem, concrete filling techniques can be used to raise the damaged area to where it should be.
Lifting and Refinishing Damaged Patio Areas
The patios of the backyard and outdoor living spaces can also start to crack and sink in soils that are fill-in landscaping. This can be a problem if you are trying to do improvements and update outdoor living space areas. Therefore, you may want to use concrete lifting techniques to repair the damage to the patio before using overlay concrete finishes to renew the surfaces for the renovations of your outdoor living spaces.
Fixing The Damaged Sidewalks and Garden Paths Around Your Home
The sidewalks can also be damaged due to soil eroding and sinking. Therefore, you may want to repair the damage with more affordable repairs rather than replacing the entire sidewalk. This can be done by using concrete lifting techniques that lift the sidewalk and fill the voids beneath it. When the sidewalk is lifted, you will also want to do improvements to prevent further erosion or settling of the soils that support the sidewalk and concrete lifting repairs.
Repairing Retaining Walls With Concrete Lifting
The retaining walls in your landscaping could also have damaged concrete due to sinking footings and base materials. If the retaining wall is a small structure and not completely falling, sometimes concrete lifting can be used to repair some of the damage. The lifting can be done for the footings and other materials at the base of the retaining walls to put them back in their place for further repairs to be done.
These are some of the different areas where concrete lifting techniques can be used to repair damaged materials. If you have problems with sinking concrete materials, contact a concrete lifting service and talk to them about some of these solutions.
