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.

I used them spring of 2017 to level my concrete sidewalk going up to my house. They were dependable and reasonably priced. Some places with my sidewalk had dropped 1” or more & I was concerned with people tripping & falling. It is now spring of 2018 and the sidewalk still looks perfect after a year. Highly recommend them
