Concrete isn't Always the Answer

Add Support with Piering Products for Concrete in West Chicago, IL

Concrete is one of the most commonly used building materials across the Chicagoland area. There is good reason for that. It is a widely available building material that is available at a relatively low cost. Concrete can be very strong, but time and elements can definitely do damage to concrete overtime. Chicago has many structures that are concrete. Everything from parking garages to your own foundation have concrete in them. Concrete can be damaged from super fast cooling/freezing and thawing. This is a common issue that we see in the winters of Chicago. It’s even been known to crack due to the freezing and thawing process. This can happen with your concrete slabs for your porch, garage, driveway, and more.

Concrete can be repaired with cement or chemical grouting. But it may be time to consider adding support to your concrete structures with piering solutions from United Structural Systems, Inc.
