CONCRETE SIDEWALK LEVELING AND REPAIR ST. LOUIS, MO
If you are considering repairing your concrete sidewalk or walkway because it’s sunken or uneven, turn to A-1 Concrete Leveling St. Louis. We are St. Louis’s locally owned branch of America’s largest concrete sidewalk leveling company. We will repair your sidewalk by leveling the concrete, rather than tearing it out and replacing it.
Sidewalk Leveling of a stamped concrete sidewalk uses 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 beauty to the home.
In St. Louis’s climate, heavy rainfall alternates with drought, causing clay soil to expand and contract. This movement may crack and settle your concrete, as well as create voids beneath slabs. Water may also pool next to your concrete, causing erosion and settling.
Sidewalk slabs present one of the bigger concrete nuisances, for both safety and aesthetic reasons. Fortunately, with A-1 Concrete Leveling St. Louis, even multiple sections of problem sidewalk slabs in one location are typically a straightforward, one-day fix. Our St. Louis team eliminates tripping hazards by creating smooth transitions between concrete porches, steps, and sidewalk slabs.
Our effective concrete sidewalk repair is usually done at a fraction of the cost of tearing it out and replacing it. We provide an efficient and high-quality concrete sidewalk repair process that, in most instances, can be used immediately after the repair. Expect A-1 Concrete St. Louis to deliver expert craftsmanship, informative consultations, and thoughtful cleanup so thorough you will hardly know our team was there.
Costs for your concrete sidewalk leveling job can vary depending on a number of factors, including:
- How many sidewalk slabs need to be leveled?
- How far has the sidewalk sunk?
- Are there any large voids under the sidewalk?
- Is the sidewalk close to other concrete, like driveways or steps?
So, although we can’t give you a specific cost for leveling your sidewalk, we can tell you that most of the time it will be significantly less than other alternatives.
Sidewalks 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 sidewalk from a downspout, or water that’s getting under the slabs and freezing and thawing causing the concrete to heave, during our thorough evaluation process, A-1 Concrete St. Louis 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.
“Extreme wet and dry conditions that we have in this region lead to erosion and setting of the ground. This causes all concrete to develop voids and/or settle over time. Additionally, drainage problems will cause further water erosion under and around concrete, that if left will cause cracking and sinking of the concrete.”
—Alan Benes, Owner, A-1 Concrete St. Louis

St. Louis Concrete Sidewalk Leveling

Even afterwards, nothing has moved with the plants along the sidewalk.
St. Louis Sidewalk Concrete Repair
This is a situation we see quite often. The sidewalk has broken away from the step and water has washed under the walkway creating a void, which caused the sidewalk to sink.
This sidewalk had sunk so much, rain was washing the landscaping over the crack, most likely funneling water beneath the slab causing more damage.
After the concrete sidewalk was lifted, A-1 St. Louis installed a non-shrink, long-lasting caulk to the crack to keep water from getting under the slab again.
Sidewalk Leveling, when done right, can be a great alternative to tearing it out and replacing it. But the key is “when done right.” Our sidewalk leveling process has been refined over the years until we’ve got it down to a science. Sure there’s still some art to it, and our “Concrete Whisperers” are highly skilled at knowing just how to move a sidewalk slab the way they want it to go, but the process is actually pretty simple.
“We will drill 1" holes in the sunken concrete and then pump a crushed limestone/portland cement mixture under the concrete to fill any voids before creating pressure to lift the concrete back into place. We then will clean up the jobsite and seal up the drill holes.”

Very Good Mudjacking Experience: we needed mudjacking of garage and porch, and got 4 quotes. Alan (owner) was the only one of the quotes who actually spent time sounding the concrete with a ball, and truly trying to figure out the voids and their cause. He came up with a more detailed plan-- thinner mud, etc, and his quote was more transparent-- he charges by the truck of mud pumped in, flat rate. Others estimated that our job would need only 1 truck, but Alan at A-1 was more accurate in the estimate and thought it would be up to 3 trucks. The result was that A1's quote was both more accurate and a better deal. His team is awesome, they even put a tarp under their entire truck so absolutlely nothing falls on your drive, and they drilled extra holes to be sure they got all the voids, and were friendly. Afterwards it appeared that they had mopped the site-- even the dust from the drill was gone. It was nice to have a contractor who did the job they way they would do it for a family member or friend-- clean, thorough, professional. I really appreciated them taking the time to drill extra holes to ensure complete fill-- that will save me from having surprises in the future.
