Why Has My Porch Started Sinking?
Porch and patio settlement can be a huge headache for a homeowner. Though there are a few possible causes of settlement, the most common is improper soil compaction when the porch or patio was originally poured. Over time, the weight of the porch condensed the loose soils underneath, causing the porch or patio to sink. This process could appear in as little as a few months, but other homeowners start noticing settlement years and years after a slab was poured. As long as the porch or patio is in good shape, it can be lifted back up to it’s original height, removing any trip hazards or pooling issues that existed beforehand.
What Can Jackcrete Do?
By drilling penny-sized holes into the porch or patio slabs that are comprised, JACKCRETE is able to make the landing good as new. Our whole process usually takes between 1-2 hours for this application, though some projects take as little as 30 minutes. Usually nothing has to be moved for us to perform our work, and the concrete doesn’t have to have any downtime. Once we are done, we fill our holes with a color-matching grout to help blend our hole with the rest of the concrete. There will be almost no evidence that your porch had been worked on, but the concrete will be back to level and as good as new!
