Concrete Repair Vs. Replacement

Concrete raising, sometimes called slabjacking, is a fast, cost effective alternative to replacement.

Demolishing old structures and laying new concrete requires more equipment, and more professionals compared to slabjacking. This makes the replacement cost nearly twice as much as slabjacking. Not only is it less expensive, raised concrete can be used almost immediately while new concrete pours may take several days before they can be walked on and a month to fully set. There is also no need to disturb adjacent landscaping or plants, making the whole endeavor a much cleaner process.

Sometimes, there’s no way around it. Your concrete may be too damaged for a concrete lifting job. Explore your options here.
