What kind of weather have YOU been experiencing in your region?

weather in your region

In the summer months, a lot can happen to the concrete in and around our homes. And with more people out and about, concrete issues might feel more noticeable – and more annoying. From a sunken sidewalk slab to a cracked concrete driveway, the climate of the region has a direct impact on the soil and, ultimately, the concrete on top of it.

It’s not uncommon for many regions to experience a lot of moisture in the early summer months. The rain saturates the soil and can soften it, making concrete slabs sink. Rain and water can also wash away the dirt under and around concrete. This erodes the support underneath the concrete, causing it to crack and drop.

Dry weather and the hot summer sun can also dry out the soil around your home. As the moisture in the soil evaporates, the dirt shrinks – or takes up less space – impacting the stability underneath the concrete. Much like when dirt is washed away, the lack of support can cause the concrete to crack and fall. While it may only drop a few inches or centimeters, it can dramatically impact the safety and quality of life for those who walk on it.

While weather patterns might feel like a never-ending cycle of concrete problems, there are simple and permanent fixes. Our company has helped countless homeowners by lifting their sunken sidewalk slab, repaired their cracked driveway and, ultimately, restored their curb appeal and safety around their home.
