By reading this page, you’ll learn about our state-of-the-art concrete driveway lifting and repair service and how it can benefit your home. 

What is Concrete Driveway Repair? 

Concrete driveway repair encompasses the restoration of damaged, cracked, or sunken concrete slabs within your property’s driveway. The primary aim is to reinstate their height, stability, and visual appeal. 

Conventional repair methods, such as mudjacking and repouring, tend to be invasive, costly, temporary, and do not tackle the root causes of the problem. 

Ohio Basement Systems’ unique repair solution relies on polyurethane injections for concrete lifting. This technique is a vital element within a whole-home solution, ensuring that your living space maintains aesthetic appeal and functionality while ensuring safety. 

Through our customizable PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting system, we effectively address issues stemming from unstable underlying soil and oversaturation, providing a long-lasting remedy that benefits your driveway and the overall environment of your home. By optimizing the health of your driveway, you enhance your home’s curb appeal, usability, and resale value. 

Signs Your Concrete Driveway Needs Repair 

Detect driveway issues early to prevent further damage and costly repairs. Signs include: 

  • Visible Cracks: Many cracks or large breaks wider than ¼”. 
  • Unevenness: Sinking slabs or dipping sections within the driveway. 
  • Pooling Water: Water collects in certain areas on or near the driveway. 
  • Crumbling: Deteriorating sides and edges. 
  • Related Damage: Pitting, flaking, or staining on the driveway’s surface. 

Don’t ignore cracks and settlement in your driveway. Acting early is key to preventing further damage. Contact Ohio Basement Systems at the first sign of driveway damage for reliable driveway repair solutions. 

Is Concrete Driveway Repair Necessary? 

Certainly. Concrete driveways are susceptible to cracking and settling over time, primarily due to soil instability and the repeated freeze-thaw cycles they endure. 

Postponing repairs can exacerbate the problem as moisture under the driveway continues to erode and cause further sinking. The longer this issue is left unaddressed, the more extensive the damage to your driveway becomes, and your repair options become limited. 

Early concrete lifting, on the other hand, intervenes before problems escalate, helping you avoid the costly prospect of a complete driveway replacement in the future. Repairing your driveway as soon as issues arise is the most cost-effective and efficient approach. 

Addressing these concerns early also allows our experts to evaluate your property for foundation settling issues that may be contributing to the driveway damage. This comprehensive approach ensures a more effective and lasting solution for your concrete driveway woes. 

What Are the Benefits of Concrete Driveway Repair? 

Repairing your driveway with concrete lifting offers many benefits: 

  • Preventing Further Damage: Addressing cracks and lifting sunken areas in your driveway puts an end to ongoing concrete deterioration. By halting water flow and preventing additional soil erosion, you safeguard your investment from more extensive and costly repairs in the future. 
  • Enhancing Safety: Lifting settled sections and filling cracks creates a uniformly flat driveway surface. This correction eliminates tipping hazards and rain puddles, ensuring your driveway is safe and fully functional. 
  • Boosting Curb Appeal: A clean and smooth driveway enhances your home’s appearance, making it more enjoyable for you and more inviting for visitors. It also contributes to your property’s overall value. 
  • Customized Solutions: Unlike quick fixes, our experts provide tailored repairs based on your property’s unique needs. We thoroughly evaluate the driveway and your home’s foundation to address root causes rather than just treating symptoms. Our comprehensive solution ensures long-lasting repairs. 

Repair services must be performed with top-notch products and expertise. Our PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting system, designed explicitly for durability, efficiency, and minimal environmental impact, guarantees unparalleled benefits for your driveway repair needs.
