*Some aspects of proper repair maintenance include keeping adequate soil levels around the leveled slabs, caulking cracks or expansion joints to keep water from intruding under the slabs, and ensuring water drainage is directed away from the concrete.
How can you use your warranty?
If you find that your concrete is resettling or you have another problem with your repair, get in contact with our office by calling or emailing to let us know what’s going on.
We’ll then get you on the schedule for an estimator to come out to your property and evaluate the area. After the evaluation, if the issue is something we can address, we will get you on the schedule for a crew to come back and fix it at no extra cost.
Why don’t we warranty newer concrete?
A-1 South Bend’s concrete leveling warranty doesn’t cover repairs done on concrete that is under three years old, and this is because newer concrete is prone to settling.
When new concrete is poured, the soil that holds up the slabs gets disturbed. It takes a while for the soil to compact and settle into its final position, and as that soil or other sub-material compacts and settles, the concrete on top comes with it.
In order to prevent resettling, the soil under the concrete slab must be as stable as possible for a concrete leveling repair.
We have found here at A-1 South Bend that three years is about the time it takes for the soil under the concrete to be adequately compacted enough to not worry as much about the potential for resettling.
