No matter what kind of property you manage, level concrete is important. A-1 can partner with you with affordable options for long-term concrete leveling solutions.

Whether you manage just one rental property or hundreds, you know how important having safe, beautiful concrete is. Your renters need to know they aren't going to trip and fall coming in and out of your buildings. This becomes even more apparent if you have pools or other areas where kids might be running and not looking out for those trip hazards.


A-1 Concrete Leveling works with apartment managers to come up with cost-effective solutions to repair and level your concrete to keep your renters safe, while not breaking the bank. And, we can do it without disrupting the members of your community. Nearly all the services we offer can be done in a matter of hours and can be used immediately afterward.

Causes of Settling Concrete at Apartment Complexes

Concrete outside your buildings can settle for a number of reasons. Most relate to either too much, or too little, water. If the ground becomes saturated, it can allow the concrete on top to sink. Or water can flow under the concrete,  washing out substrate material and creating voids. Also, extremely dry conditions can cause soil to shrink, which also creates voids that allow concrete slabs to fall.

Poor compaction during construction can also be an issue. This is especially true for interior concrete slabs. If you see hallways sinking on ground floors, this can often be due to improper compaction during construction.

The good news is all of these are quite reparable. A-1 Concrete Leveling has years of experience with exactly these types of issues and will offer the best solutions to get the job done right and stay within budget.

Solutions for Concrete Issues at Apartments

The primary way A-1 repairs concrete at apartment buildings is the same techniques we use for homeowners. For out-of-level concrete slabs, we drill a series of holes in strategic locations in the slabs, and then pump a material beneath the slab and lift it back into place. This gives the concrete a firm foundation that keeps it from settling back again in the future. Many of our franchises also offer solutions that are less messy for interior slabs, although depending on the situation they can be a little more costly.

Concrete Leveling & Repair Costs

All of A-1's concrete leveling services are significantly less than the cost of tearing the concrete out and replacing it. In fact, it can be up to 70% less. So, no matter what option you choose, you know you will get the best solution to your issue at the best price. This will give you the peace of mind that you are giving your tenants a safe environment, while also not eating your entire maintenance budget for the year.
