The Pros And Cons Of Concrete Levelers

If your concrete slab is uneven or you’re experiencing problems with water pooling on the floor of your basement, it may be the right time to think about the possibility of a concrete leveling solution. There are many options available, each having its own pros and cons. There is slabjacking, mudjacking and poly leveling. Each of these methods can be used to level concrete.

The best method to determine if a concrete leveling project is right for you is to request an estimate for free with your local contractor. They will examine the concrete and provide you with a quote. Certain contractors offer a guarantee. If you choose one of these options, you can expect to pay an average of $350 to level your concrete. The price range will vary dramatically based on where you live. In some areas, prices can be as high as $500. If you are looking for a warranty, you should make sure to review the terms of the contract before signing any work.

Mudjacking is the lifting of concrete slabs that have been sunk or moved. It involves injecting the material through holes in the slab. The injected material then raises the slab. The process is messy and could create large holes that are unsightly. Self-leveling overlays are a different kind of Greene Concrete Leveling system that can be used in place of mudjacking. The procedure involves spreading a layer of cement-based compound over the top of the concrete. It is similar to epoxy in its composition and can give an attractive, smooth appearance.

Slabjacking, a more complex repair, will require you remove items from the concrete slab. You will then need to grind down any ridges that are extremely high. You can lease a concrete grinder from a local home center at a reasonable price of a half-day. Depending on the size of the area, you might also require an industrial squeegee to spread the mudjacking.

If you have an uneven slab on your garage, it can be tempting to replace it. A new slab won’t last unless it fixes the issue at hand. A leveled slab is a better choice for concrete and will save you money over the long run.
