Concrete Repair FAQ

We do not pour new concrete slabs. Instead, we lift and level existing concrete slabs which have settled. In most cases, this process is more affordable than replacement and unlike traditional mudjacking, we give you a long-term warranty! Our Design Specialist will be able to assess your concrete at your free estimate appointment and advise you on the best solution.
We do lift and level concrete slabs and are the leader in using PolyLevel polyurethane injection foam in Colorado. Traditional mudjacking is an old school repair method for lifting concrete slabs that have settled using a mud-slurry mix and tends to be a short term option, which in many cases, will need to be redone within a year or two. For this reason, we do not offer mudjacking, but rather use our fast, effective and less invasive PolyLevel solution. This involves injecting an expanding polymer foam under the concrete which is non-leaching and waterproof for a durable, long lasting solution.

We offer concrete grinding services which can be helpful in taking high spots down so that it is no longer a trip hazard. However, if the slab heaving is caused by a nearby tree root system, we would recommend that you have the tree roots removed so that the problem does not recur.
The Colorado Springs Operations & Maintenance Division manages the city’s concrete repairs. Though the sidewalk repairs have been the responsibility of adjacent property owners for decades, the City does have a Concrete Cost Share Program and ADA program available. Find out more information here.

Yes! Peak Structural can seal the joints and cracks that make up your driveway, sidewalk, or other concrete feature. Nexus Pro is a long-lasting sealant to help preserve the integrity of your concrete. Nexus Pro is a silicone-based sealant that prevents water ice and dirt from infiltrating the concrete joint and the ground below. You can read more about it here.
There are a number of reasons why concrete slabs may sink. Concrete is heavy! When the soils underneath a concrete slab are unable to support its weight, the slab will sink. If part of the concrete slab is supported by soils and other sections are not, the unsupported pieces may crack away from the other section and result in unlevel concrete.

We see this sort of problem frequently. Often inside the home, the floor will pull away from walls and doorways, creating gaps at the seams. There are several traditional methods of raising concrete slabs, including spreading self-leveling compounds, mudjacking, and pier installation. However, these methods can be very invasive and often don’t fix the source of the problem. Our PolyLevel injection foam is a great solution for lifting interior concrete slabs! Read more here.
