After repairing concrete, when can you use your driveway again?


If you have a home, chances are you have a driveway. (Okay, we really didn’t work too hard on that one, keep reading).

Driveways in our region can often become cracked and sunken. This is a result of the soil underneath those concrete driveway slabs.

As the soil softens during rain or moisture, the weight of the concrete could cause the slab to sink. When the soil dries out, it shrinks and might not be able to support the concrete slab. Finally, sometimes the way the home builder compacted the soil in the first place might cause it to easily wash away leaving an empty void under the concrete.

All of these issues can be solved by our company injecting an environmentally safe foam called PolyLevel under the concrete to help support it and bring it level with the rest of your driveway.

There are other processes that purport to raise and fix your concrete slabs, like mudjacking, but that will leave large holes in your driveway from drilling and isn’t a permanent solution.

We get it, it’s not every day you try to decide how you’re going to fix your concrete driveway. You might be tempted to just rip the driveway out and re-pour it altogether. This is a costly option and inconvenient.

When you pour new concrete, it will take several days for the concrete to cure. This means you can’t use your driveway during that time. Instead of parking in your garage, you’ll be forced to park in the street or on your lawn, depending on what’s available to you.

If you want a less expensive and more sustainable option for your driveway, injecting PolyLevel under your driveway by professionals is the best bet. The foam quickly raises the concrete and hardens, meaning you can drive a vehicle on your driveway within 30 minutes.
