What is Concrete Sidewalk Repair? 

Concrete sidewalk repair offers a solution to mitigate the hazards and aesthetic concerns arising from cracked, sunken, or damaged sidewalks. 

Although mudjacking and repouring are traditional methods, they are marked by their high cost, invasive nature, temporary effectiveness, and inability to address the root causes of sidewalk damage. 

Issues such as unstable, expansive underlying soil and oversaturation are responsible for concrete deterioration. The concrete lifting process, particularly when employing the PolyRenewal™ system, is pivotal in delivering a robust, environmentally friendly, and swift remedy for misaligned sidewalk slabs. 

Concrete lifting is a durable standalone repair method that complements the comprehensive whole-home solutions provided by Ohio Basement Systems, ensuring the overall structural integrity of your residence. 

Signs Your Concrete Sidewalk Needs Repair 

Recognizing the need for sidewalk repair is crucial for maintaining a safe and beautiful outdoor environment. Your sidewalk likely needs repair if it exhibits problems such as: 

  • Extensive cracks and fissures wider than ¼ inch 
  • Uneven, tilted, or sinking slabs 
  • Significant height differences between slabs 
  • Slabs that rock or shift when stepped on 
  • Similar damage like pitting, flaking, and staining 
  • Pooling water or mud on the sidewalk 

Promptly addressing these concerns with Ohio Basement Systems can prevent safety hazards and more extensive damage, resulting in cost-effective solutions. 

Is Concrete Sidewalk Repair Necessary? 

Don’t neglect sidewalk repairs – act now for safety and your home’s protection. Damaged concrete sidewalks are more than just an eyesore; they pose a real physical hazard. The longer you wait, the worse the deterioration becomes, requiring more extensive and costly future repairs. 

Prompt action prevents gradual decay and further sinking, saving you money. In addition, immediately addressing sidewalk issues helps avoid potential structural and environmental impacts to your home’s foundation. 

At Ohio Basement Systems, we offer complete home solutions that include expert concrete sidewalk repair. Our team can diagnose underlying issues, recommend proper fixes, and seamlessly integrate sidewalk lifting into comprehensive foundation repairs for your home. 

What Are the Benefits of Concrete Sidewalk Repair? 

Repairing your concrete sidewalk offers numerous benefits, such as: 

Better Safety and Accessibility 

Lifting uneven sidewalks enhances safety and prevents trip hazards. Smoothing cracks and sealing joints creates a seamless walking surface, improving accessibility for all. 

Avoid Further Damage 

Unrepaired sidewalk problems worsen over time as water seeps in and erodes the soil underneath. Stabilizing the soil and lifting the concrete prevents continued deterioration, maximizing repair longevity. 

Enhance Curb Appeal 

Lifting damaged sidewalks enhances your property’s appearance and value. Our proprietary solutions ensure aesthetically pleasing, long-lasting results. 

For optimal functionality, choose our proprietary PolyRenewal™ system, known for its efficiency, eco-friendliness, and durability. 

How We Install Concrete Sidewalk Repair 

Ohio Basement Systems’ expert technicians follow these steps for seamless, long-lasting sidewalk repair: 

  • Thoroughly inspect the sidewalk, determine the cause of damage, and verify needed repairs. 
  • Drill small, penny-sized holes into the affected sidewalk areas. 
  • Place injection ports in the drilled holes. 
  • Mix a specialized two-part, closed-cell polymer foam. 
  • Inject the foam under the concrete. 
  • Allow the foam to expand, fill voids, and cure (approximately 15 minutes). 
  • Ensure the slab is properly lifted and the underlying soil is stabilized. 
  • Remove the ports and fill the drilled holes. 
  • Apply protective sealant to cracks and joints. 
  • Implement annual maintenance and monitoring protocols.
