What Causes Uneven Concrete

Bad Concrete Pouring

It’s possible that the construction crew who poured your concrete didn’t do a particularly good job, though it’s unlikely. Before, during, and after the concrete pouring process, a construction crew must follow a set of protocols. A mistake during one of these processes is all it takes to completely damage the concrete’s structural integrity. This isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when most people think about uneven concrete. Uneven concrete can be repaired in a variety of ways, depending on the cause. That means you can fix the issue if the concrete pouring didn’t go as planned the first time.

Soil Erosion

Soil erosion in concrete driveways, sidewalks, and patios is a common problem for many homeowners. Soil erosion can be caused by a number of factors. Erosion can occur if there is a lot of heavy rain or floods in the area, or if the professionals who poured the concrete didn’t make sure the soil was adequately prepped. The more the soil underlying your concrete erodes, the more probable it is that you will have uneven concrete. This is due to the fact that the concrete is no longer equally supported on all sides.

Too Much Weight

One variable that causes concrete to sink is weight. Because your driveway, sidewalk, or patio wasn’t built to carry as much weight as it does, serious sinking issues can occur if the initial construction workers didn’t account for enough weight on top of the concrete. If you leave a large automobile parked in the same position on your driveway for a lengthy period, this could be a problem. For instance, if you have a car that you only occasionally drive or that doesn’t work, you may have more uneven concrete concerns than if it was moved and parked in the driveway frequently.

FAQs

First, you should examine the significance of the concrete on your driveway, sidewalk, or patio. Concrete is one of the very first features of your property that guests will notice. It has a deep connection to the concrete that forms the foundation of your home. There is a cause for the concrete fractures in your property. This cause may be buried deep beneath your home or easily evident to an expert, but it is closely intertwined with the rest of your home. Therefore, restoring it could be extremely useful for the general structure of your property. 

At Dry Pro, we don’t recommend attempting to do any concrete repairs on your own. You may be able to perform certain activities around the house on your own, but lifting concrete is not one of them. You must ensure that the luster of your concrete surfaces is returned promptly and effectively. If you have concrete settling concerns, you should contact a professional concrete lifting and repair business, especially for an area as prominent as your home’s driveway. Don’t put your driveway in the wrong hands, hire a reputable company. 

Uneven concrete can lead to accidents and falls, among a plethora of other problems. It can also have a significant impact on the curb appeal of your home. There are a variety of concrete problems, but some homeowners assume that the issue must be causing major property damage before they make the moves to do anything about it. However, you must address your specific concrete issues as soon as you become aware of them, particularly before they become a problem for you as the owner of the property.
