Find out how A-1 Concrete Leveling can help Grocery and Convenience Stores make their properties safer and more beautiful for their customers.

Grocery and convenience stores can benefit greatly from A-1 Concrete Leveling's services. When you've got uneven floors inside your store, you can't afford to unshelve all your products so the floor can be fixed. Let A-1 come in and level your concrete while keeping everything in place.


Your store only makes money when folks can easily get to your products. Uneven concrete floors can cause all kinds of issues, not the least of which is the possibility of someone tripping and hurting themselves. The problem is, most solutions could see you having to partially, or completely shut down during the repair process, which could take a week or more depending on how much product you need to move.

A-1 Concrete's process eliminates all of these issues. We can typically fix issues in a matter of hours, oftentimes at night while your store is closed.

Causes of Settling Concrete at Grocery Stores

Inside concrete slabs can settle due to a number of reasons, but one is often poorly compacted substrate. Builders do what they can to prepare the surface for the concrete but, sometimes there are hidden issues that they are not aware of, like buried organic matter (trees and stumps) that can degrade over time and cause voids.

Water issues can also cause concrete to sink. Either too much water, which can wash out the base under the slab, or even drought, which can cause soils to shrink, leaving voids underneath. A-1 Concrete Leveling will always evaluate the root cause of your concrete settling issues and offer advice on how to avoid problems in the future.

Solutions for Concrete Issues in Grocery & Convenience Stores

Grocery stores are often prime candidates for our injection foam leveling services. This process can be cleaner than our grout leveling and can be completed without too much need for covering products with plastic sheeting. But, even if you opt to go with our limestone grout leveling solution, our technicians can carefully protect your shelves and products, while lifting and leveling your floors. Our expert sales associates can give you the option they recommend, but rest assured they will only offer solutions that will get the job done in the best way possible.

Concrete Leveling & Repair Costs

Although injection foam concrete leveling can be more expensive, in most cases it is still far more cost-effective than pouring new concrete. Especially when you consider the expense of having to shut down for weeks at a time and completely move shelves and products off of the area to be leveled. When it comes to leveling floors in grocery and convenience stores, there really is no better, or budget-friendly solution than concrete leveling.
