Concrete leveling is a great alternative to concrete replacement that works by drilling small holes into the slab, then pumping a strong leveling compound through the holes and under the concrete.
The pressure from this compound lifts the settled slab, then it hardens, creating a stable base for the concrete to rest on.
If you're interested in exploring what concrete leveling can do for your settled concrete, you may be wondering about your options for hiring a concrete leveler.
A-1 Concrete Leveling has been lifting settled concrete for over 30 years, which has allowed us to get to know the industry inside and out.
With this knowledge, we’ve compiled this list of the top three options available to you for professional concrete leveling, including dedicated concrete leveling companies, foundation repair companies, and sub-contractors.
A company whose main service is concrete leveling is one way to get the professional concrete leveling services you need.
Companies like A-1 Concrete Leveling specialize in lifting concrete, and they usually focus on concrete repair and maintenance as a whole. For example, in addition to concrete leveling, A-1 also provides concrete caulking and cleaning and sealing services.
The advantage of choosing to work with a dedicated concrete leveling company is that they are lifting concrete day in and day out. It’s not something they do on the side, but rather an efficient process they are perfecting day after day, and it can be more cost-effective as they have to order material in larger quantities.
You can also have professional concrete leveling performed by many foundation repair companies.
These foundation repair companies do concrete leveling as part of their many other services. Most companies that provide concrete leveling also do basement waterproofing and foundation repair services.
Many companies offer only injection foam leveling for their concrete lifting services, which is not always the ideal solution. Because concrete leveling is not the main service these companies are providing, they don’t have as much time to perfect their methods.
However, an advantage of working with foundation repair companies is that if you also need some of the many other services they offer, you may be able to get them done at the same time as you get your concrete lifted.
When a contractor is hired for a project such as a house remodel or for a commercial property, if the concrete has settled, they will often reach out to a concrete leveling company to have the concrete lifted and repaired.
While someone who is looking for small-scale or residential concrete leveling will likely not have to deal with sub-contractors, it’s important to know that what looks like a big business leading a project may be a sub-contracted concrete leveling company.
Now that you know a little more about the options available to you for concrete leveling, you’re ready to begin looking for the concrete levelers that you want to work with.
