Rainfall causes clay soil to expand, while dry weather causes it to contract. This movement may crack or settle your concrete. Water may also freeze and thaw over the winter, causing soil under concrete to recede, or pool next to your concrete, causing erosion and settling.

- How many sidewalk slabs need to be leveled?
- How far has the sidewalk sunk?
- Are there any large voids under the sidewalk?

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 causing the soil to expand or contract, which in turn causes the concrete to heave, A-1 Concrete Leveling Maryville 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.
“In the Midwest, you get the freeze-thaw cycle. If the water intrusion is not mitigated . . . the water will undermine the soil, causing our material to sink and then the concrete in turn.”
—Anthony Goforth, Co-Owner, A-1 Concrete Leveling Maryville

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 Maryville installed a non-shrink, long-lasting caulk to the crack to keep water from getting under the slab again.

We used the services of A1 Concrete Leveling Inc about 2 weeks ago. We had water pounding on our sidewalk and they took care of it. I would give them A's across the board. They left the jobsite neat and clean. It has just been great so far.
