Driveway Repair

A cracked and sinking driveway can have a negative impact on the appearance and value of your home, as well as pose a safety risk.  Fortunately, Alpha Foundations has a solution for you with our SettleStop™ PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting system.

By injecting lightweight and durable foam under the driveway, we can effectively lift and stabilize the slabs. With over 20 years of experience, homeowners across Florida rely on us for personalized service and concrete repairs that last. 

What is Driveway Repair?

Driveway repair is the process of restoring your driveway from cracking and sinking to enhance its stability and appearance. This usually involves concrete lifting, with some methods being more effective than others.

Rather than outdated concrete lifting methods, like mudjacking or concrete re-pouring, we use a modern technique called polyurethane injection. This process not only restores the height, stability, and appearance of your concrete but also addresses the underlying problems that caused damage in the first place. 

Our system, called PolyRenewal™, is fully customizable to meet your home’s specific needs. By improving your concrete stability, we create a visually appealing, safe, and functional part of your property. 

Signs Your Driveway Needs Repair

Spotting driveway damage is relatively straightforward. Doing so as soon as possible can help you avoid worse damage down the line.

Here are some signs to look for:

Cracked driveway.
  • Visible Cracks: Look out for any cracks or large fissures wider than ¼”. 
  • Unevenness: Pay attention to sinking slabs or areas of the driveway that dip. 
  • Pooling Water: Keep an eye on spots where water accumulates on or near your driveway. 
  • Crumbling Edges: Watch out for deteriorating sides and edges. 
  • Related Damage: Look for any pitting, flaking, or staining on the surface of the concrete. 

Detecting these issues early on will help prevent safety concerns, further damage, and costly repairs. if you notice even one of them, don’t hesitate to reach out to Alpha Foundations for reliable and effective driveway repair solutions you can trust. 

Is Driveway Repair Necessary? 

Yes! Driveways are used almost every day, and damage can interrupt your daily routine. Most concrete damage is caused by moisture in the soil that makes the ground expand and contract. Waiting to repair concrete allows this cycle to continue and makes the damage worse over time.

Not to mention, repairing your driveway is cost-effective in the long run and helps maintain your property’s value. Professional driveway inspections may also reveal if foundation damage is on the horizon, as concrete damage often has the same underlying causes. In short, driveway repair keeps your entire home safer.

    Driveway Repair FAQs

    The time required for driveway leveling can vary depending on the size and severity of the unevenness. However, most residential driveway leveling projects can be completed in just a few hours. This quick turnaround time means minimal disruption for homeowners. For an accurate timeline, contact Alpha Foundations for a free inspection. 

    While mudjacking and self-leveling concrete are tempting to install on your own, we do not recommend DIY concrete leveling or repair. It can be easy to not properly mix or install the materials, and the necessary tools for installation can be expensive. When you work with a concrete leveling professional like Alpha Foundations, you’ll receive a free inspection and repair estimate, and you’ll benefit from our years of experience in diagnosing and repairing sunken concrete.  

    Depending on what repair method is used, professionally leveled concrete can last for many years with proper maintenance. Factors like soil settlement, freezing/thawing, and traffic loads impact longevity. Ongoing cracking should be evaluated. To learn more about concrete leveling, particularly with long-lasting polyurethane injections, contact Alpha Foundations for a free inspection and estimate. 

    *Disclaimer: “Concrete leveling” means the process by which cracked, uneven concrete is stabilized, and in many cases lifted, by means of PolyRenewal™ polyurethane foam. Alpha Foundations does not guarantee that PolyRenewal™ can make your concrete perfectly level.
