Check Your Sidewalk, Walkway, or Driveway For These Common Problem Signs 


A very common problem sign is sunken concrete or concrete that has dropped below the rest of the slabs. This commonly occurs because the soil beneath the slab has washed out due to erosion. When this happens, a void is created. Without the proper support, the concrete sinks further into the soil. This problem is common in both driveway slabs as well as sidewalks.  

Uneven Concrete  

If you notice your concrete dips or is uneven at your Tallahassee or Naples home, this is a sign your concrete needs repair. Although erosion, or soil washout, is a common cause of this problem as well, the results look a little different, with sections of concrete moving in multiple directions.  

Heaving Concrete  

Another common concrete problem sign is heaving or concrete that lifts away from the soil. This happens when tree roots or other elements below force the slab upward. This causes the slab to lift and eventually crack.   

Cracked Concrete  

Cracks can range from hairline cracks to large openings in your concrete. When these are noticed, concrete repair is needed, and soon. Again, choosing to repair your concrete in a timely manner saves both money and headache in the long run.
