Not only is this a cost-effective way to repair concrete. it is also much faster than replacing the entire concrete slab and your downtime is very minimal.Many issues arise from uneven concrete:Drainage problems from runoff and puddles collecting in places it's not supposed toUnsightly concrete, decreasing your property valueSafety and tripping issues for visitors or customersHigher liability issues for home and business owners for dangerous walking areas
Concrete leveling is the process where the concrete slab is "floated" up in small sections, letting us control the lift and protecting the concrete from further damage. When you work with professionals that understand the process, they will know the right mix of equipment, materials and labor to keep the concrete from further issues, and to avoid damaging any attached or nearby buildings.Nick Gress Foundations creates a series of one-inch diameter holes in the slab, through which we hydraulically pump a slurry with a limestone base undernearth the slab. This fills in the voided areas under the slab and force it to rise evenly, making a new base under the concrete, and solidifying the entire area.Not only does our process create a level surface, it also helps to prevent freezing and cracking in the future by keeping water out from under the concrete slab.Nick Gress Foundations is the leader in Concrete Leveling in Lake St. Louis, O’Fallon, Wentzville, St. Peters, St. Charles, Creve Coeur, Maryland Heights, Des Peres, Manchester, Chesterfield, Wildwood, South County, Valley Park, Sunset Hills, and Kirkwood.
