The Art & Science of Concrete Repair
Concrete leveling and repair is every bit an art as it is a science. Anyone can say they can level your concrete sidewalk, or driveway, but unless they understand the underlying issues, and know-how concrete tends to react to pressure when lifting, they risk causing more damage than you already have, giving you no choice but to rip out the concrete and pour new. When it comes to foundation repair, inexperience can be catastrophic.
At A-1 Concrete Leveling, we know concrete. It is our passion. It’s the thing we think about all the time. Many of us see concrete slabs in our dreams (seriously.) So, when you are deciding on who to call, trust The Concrete Leveling Experts to do the job right, the first time.
Concrete leveling is much more than just pumping something under a slab and lifting the concrete up. If you watch any of our concrete leveling videos, you'll see the technician moving around the slab, pumping material through one hole then another then back to the first. This is because it's not just a matter of lifting the slab only where it is down, it's floating the slab up into place. You'll see them looking at the slabs from the side. Using their fingers on the gap between the moving slab and a stationary one next to it. As the concrete lifts, it floats around almost like a piece of wood on water. But unlike that piece of wood on water, it's not easy to move the slab after it's lifted.
All of this to say, it's imperative that you hire a company that can get that slab to move into the right place, while not lifting it too far as well. Otherwise, you can actually cause more damage than you had before, and end up having to tear it out and replace it, which is exactly what you didn't want to do in the first place.
For over 25 years, A-1 has been perfecting the science of concrete leveling and repair. The machinery that we use to level your concrete is foundationally the same as it was in the beginning (pumping a limestone grout, hydraulically, through a hose under a concrete slab) but we are continually looking for ways to improve the equipment and every part of the process. A-1 holds several patents on both our concrete leveling equipment and foundation repair equipment.
When you hire A-1 for your concrete leveling or repair job, you can rest assured that we are going to apply the latest science, using the best equipment, and most knowledgeable technicians in the industry.

Tony has been with A-1 Lexington since 2018. He can most often be found on the back of the truck making sure everything is running smoothly so your concrete can be lifted back into place perfectly.
Very Good Mudjacking Experience: we needed mudjacking of garage and porch, and got 4 quotes. Alan (owner) was the only one of the quotes who actually spent time sounding the concrete with a ball, and truly trying to figure out the voids and their cause. He came up with a more detailed plan-- thinner mud, etc, and his quote was more transparent-- he charges by the truck of mud pumped in, flat rate. Others estimated that our job would need only 1 truck, but Alan at A-1 was more accurate in the estimate and thought it would be up to 3 trucks. The result was that A1's quote was both more accurate and a better deal. His team is awesome, they even put a tarp under their entire truck so absolutlely nothing falls on your drive, and they drilled extra holes to be sure they got all the voids, and were friendly. Afterwards it appeared that they had mopped the site-- even the dust from the drill was gone. It was nice to have a contractor who did the job they way they would do it for a family member or friend-- clean, thorough, professional. I really appreciated them taking the time to drill extra holes to ensure complete fill-- that will save me from having surprises in the future.
