Consider these top reasons to fixing your sinking and unlevel concrete slabs
1. The Problem Always Gets Worse
If a slab has cracked or has begun to sink, the issue will not eventually stop or fix itself, it WILL continue to get worse. And when problems get worse, the cost of fixing the issue increases.
2. Resale Value Of Your Home
Today's homebuyer doesn't typically want to purchase a home with an unleveled driveway and front walkway, a stoop pulling away from the house, or floors that are cracked and sinking. First impression does make a difference in some cases. Also, be prepared for this to be a "bargaining chip" in the price offer.
Concrete slabs with large voids or settled and uneven do not look safe.
Settled or unlevel concrete is unsafe. As a homeowner or landlord, this is incredibly dangerous and open you up to unwanted liability.
5. Water Intrusion
Cracks are exposed to the surrounding environment and when cracks let in water, damage can worsen.
6. Pooling Water
Unlevel concrete will encourage low spots where standing water will pool. In cooler months, these pools can freeze, which causes more safety concerns and further damage.
7. Structural Damage
Shifting concrete on a ground level can affect the structures above the slab. As a result, doors and windows will start to stick and other structural damages throughout your home may occur. Load bearing walls should be watched closely. If the problem is left too long, cost of repair will increase significantly.
