Sidewalk Leveling of a stamped concrete sidewalk using an environmentally friendly limestone grout mixture pumped beneath the concrete. This creates a rock-solid base ensuring many years of level concrete, eliminating trip-hazards and restoring the beauty to the home.

In South Bend, the main cause of unlevel concrete is water. Frost or rainfall causes soil to expand, while warm or dry weather causes it to contract. This movement may crack or settle your concrete. Water can also pool next to your concrete, causing erosion and settling. Sometimes, voids can also form as a result of poorly compacted clay backfill.

Causes of Sunken Concrete Sidewalks

Walkways can get out-of-level for a number of different reasons. But, the primary cause of sunken or uneven concrete sidewalks is water. Whether it’s water running under the walkway from a downspout, or water that’s getting under the slabs and causing the soil to expand or contract, which in turn causes the concrete to heave, A-1 Concrete Leveling South Bend will always recommend ways to stop your concrete walkways and sidewalks from sinking in the future––ensuring you have beautiful, safe concrete for years to come.

“With certain types of soil, we have to watch for erosion issues, so we have to be very careful of water flow.”
