Why Sidewalks Crack
Today, the vast majority of sidewalks are made of concrete. Concrete is one of the most durable building materials on the market. However, sidewalks see a huge amount of traffic, and over time that wear and tear can cause damage to even the toughest materials. What is it that causes your concrete sidewalks to crack?
More often than not, the culprit of sidewalk damage is the soil underneath. When the soil underneath your sidewalk becomes unstable, it can cause the concrete above to shift and settle, which over time will cause stress and eventually cracks.
This soil instability can be caused by a number of different factors, including burrowing animals, invasive tree roots, and soil erosion caused by heavy rain water or gutter run-off. No matter what’s causing your sidewalk damage, you can count on the team at Slab Fix for the repairs!

Advantages of polyurethane foamjacking for Sidewalk Leveling:
- Clean: Unlike mudjacking which can cause a mess. As the materials are mixed onsite and the slurry is moved in a cart to the work area. Polyurethane foam jacking causes no mess as the equipment containing the foam is connected and sealed to the repair area.
- Less disruptive: Polyurethane foamjacking requires only a ⅜” wide holes to be drilled, causing less noise than mudjacking which needs few 4 inch wide holes.
- Lightweight: Which lowers the chance of resettlement. As polyjacking reduces the overburden on the unstable soils under the concrete.
- Quick cure time: It can be driven on after 30 minutes or less.
- Waterproof: You don’t have to worry about the wet days. In addition it can be used for the pool decks.
Sidewalk Repair vs. Replacement
Why should you choose to have your sidewalk repaired instead of replaced? Choosing sidewalk leveling services from Slab Fix is not only the economical choice, it’s the environmentally-friendly one!
Often times when concrete is replaced, the old and broken concrete finds its way into a landfill. With sidewalk leveling services, there are no waste products. Nothing to dispose of means nothing clogging up our landfills!
Replacement is also going to save you time and money. When you opt for total replacement, you have to hire a crew. That means you’re going to incur labor costs. They’ll remove the old sidewalk, repour the new concrete, and have to wait for it to set.
Concrete repair skips all this, allowing you to use your new sidewalk almost immediately, while not having to worry about all the associated costs. On average, concrete repair services can be up to 70% less than total replacement. Call Slab Fix today to schedule your sidewalk leveling service.
Avoid DIY Sidewalk Repair
While sidewalk repair services are less labor intensive than replacement, they still aren’t a good candidate for DIY services. It can be tempting to try and save yourself the money, but DIY sidewalk repair is going to end up costing you more in the long run. Additionally, it could end up in damage to yourself or your property.
The largest obstacle in doing the job yourself is the equipment needed to complete the job properly. Simply put, sidewalk repair services require equipment that the average homeowner doesn’t have, and the equipment is often times too expensive for the average homeowner to purchase.
Quality sidewalk repair services also requires a good knowledge bases. You have to know where to drill and how to create and inject the material. But more than that, you also need to have an understanding of how the concrete is going to behave and move once the foam is injected. It takes a seasoned professional to get the job done right.

WHY SLAB FIX?
Why Polyurethane Foam Jacking for Pool Deck Leveling?
Are you tired of tripping when you head out for an early morning swim? Worried about your kids running around the pool due to areas of uneven concrete?
Beyond being an eyesore, uneven concrete slabs pose a number of threats, particularly when near your pool deck. The chances of tripping or slipping increase when your concrete is in need of repair.
Uneven concrete is a deeper problem than what you see. Soil underneath your concrete is largely responsible for a settling pool deck, and traditional concrete replacement doesn’t address the issue of your soil. Additionally, concrete replacement takes time and is far more costly and disruptive to your daily life.
Originally considered as a superior alternative to concrete replacement, mudjacking gained popularity with Florida homeownes. While it is more affordable than traditional concrete replacement, it is still messy, disruptive, and doesn’t fully address the soil problem because the injected slurry can resettle over time.
At Slab Fix, we’re proud to use the most innovative and environmentally friendly option for Florida concrete repair – polyjacking. For pool deck leveling, our concrete lifting process is the best method of concrete repair. It’s more affordable and more permanent than any other solution for concrete leveling.
