Concrete Repair Solutions In Chicago, Il

Your driveway and pathways around your home may be some of the first things people notice about your home and yard. They can be considered part of the curb appeal of your home. You also want them to be safe. Cracks and uneven areas where concrete has lifted can cause people to trip and fall, or if they are in your driveway, it can be rough on your vehicles. Chicago is known for the harsh winter weather and spring rainfall. These things can cause major problems for your concrete. Constant shrinking and expanding of the concrete can cause voids to open up beneath the slab, and cracks to form.

For the safety of your family and neighbors, it is a good idea to have the concrete repair experts in Chicago help you even out your concrete driveway and pathways, and seal those unsightly cracks.

Chicagoland area Concrete Repair Options for your Property

If your home or business in the Chicago area is experiencing sinking Concrete Slabs, Cracked Stairs, Walkways, or Driveways, the experts at United Structural Systems of Illinois offer concrete raising using mudjacking. This method of concrete raising is a process that uses grout pressure to get your concrete back to its original level.

Concrete will crack and sink due to the sinking and swelling of the soils beneath the concrete. The clay soil in Chicago is called expansive soil, which means it swells when overly saturated and shrinks when very dry. This constant shifting of the soil beneath the concrete causes concrete to also sink and heave.

The material used for mudjacking by United Structural Systems in Illinois is an environmentally safe mudjacking grouting mixture. This mixture is pumped under existing concrete to raise it.

The process begins by drilling several holes into the affected areas of the concrete. Then the grouting mixture is pumped into these holes under pressure, filling any gaps or voids beneath the concrete. Once the gaps are filled, the mixture becomes pressurized and raises the concrete back to its original level. The final step is to fill the holes that were drilled with cement mixture.

The benefits of mudjacking versus concrete replacement are:

  • Cost effective – mudjacking costs about half the price of replacement
  • Time effective – mudjacking is done in a very short time and is less disruptive than replacement
  • Clean – mudjacking is not only less disruptive than replacing, the equipment is small and helps avoid damage to landscaping
  • Aesthetics - mudjacking won't leave you with non-matching concrete like replacement will
