What Is a Cracked Concrete?

Cracked concrete refers to the appearance of breaks or lines that disrupt the smooth surfaces around your home. These imperfections can range from hairline cracks to deep fractures that compromise structural integrity.

Commonly affected areas include:

These issues pose tripping hazards, making it crucial to address them promptly to avoid further damage.

What Causes Concrete Cracking?

Several factors can cause your home’s concrete to crack, including:

  • Soil settling and erosion
  • Excessive rainfall, flooding, or snowmelt
  • Freeze-thaw cycles
  • Inadequate drainage
  • Tree root invasion
  • Flawed concrete installation
  • Curing issues during setup
  • Normal wear and tear

Is There a Solution to Cracked Concrete?

Yes! Quick action is essential. While DIY fixes might seem tempting, they often only conceal the issues.

Traditional methods like mudjacking and slab replacement can be disruptive and fail to address the root problem.

Groundworks’ SettleStop™ PolyRenewal™ system offers a precise concrete lifting solution that’s minimally invasive with a cure time of just 15 minutes, allowing normal use the same day.

For foundational issues, our experts might suggest additional solutions like foundation piers to stabilize sinking foundations.

Since every home is unique, a professional inspection is recommended to determine the specific repairs needed. Schedule a free, no-obligation inspection today.

The work done promptly by Ryan and his team (Eryica, Ny) was excellent with the driveway lift that was extremely necessary. The team did a great job being on time and within the time allotted to complete the work. Would recommend to others if they need a professional job done while being efficient. Thank you again!

We got 3 quotes for driveway lifting. These guys were competitively priced and had good reviews on google so we hired them. I’m glad we did! They were very friendly, professional, and efficient. They did a great job and cleaned up afterwards. When James and his partner came back to seal the joints, the service was just as good as the first team. Thanks again!

They showed up, gave me quote on the spot, I approved it they showed up next day and got it all done in 4 hrs. Evan zack and trevor were great to deal with during the install and gave me a walk thru when it was all done letting me know all the details of the job. Would recommend 👌

Vincent Augert was very thorough and upfront about the cost and warranty.
He was very easy to deal with and most importantly, we never felt pressure during the whole quoting process.

Excellent service. Sales was pleasant and quote was thorough enough to proceed. The crew that came out to excavate, and install the interior and exterior basement systems was absolutely top notch – their work was neat and tidy, they showed up on time, and worked hard. To top it off, they (and all the folks involved) have to be the most pleasant contractors I’ve ever dealt with – and this is house #5 for us over the years! Thank you, Basement Authority. Highly recommend.
