What is Concrete Driveway Repair? 

Repairing a concrete driveway includes restoring the cracked, sunken, or otherwise damaged concrete slab in front of your house. The purpose is both structural and cosmetic. Concrete driveway repair involves restoring the drive to its original height, enhancing stability and visual appeal.

Old-school repair methods, like repouring or mudjacking, are invasive, costly, and often don’t solve the true problem of driveway damage. Our unique driveway repair solutions rely on advanced technology: polyurethane injections for concrete lifting.

We may incorporate this technique as part of a whole-home foundation and stability solution, preserving the house’s structural integrity and value, or simply use it to fix your broken driveway. We focus on safety first, deploying the right solutions for your unique problems.

Signs Your Concrete Driveway Needs Repair 

Some signs you need to repair a concrete driveway are readily apparent: you can see large cracks in the slab. Other signs that you need to book a repair for your driveway include:

  • Uneven, sinking, or dipping sections of the driveway
  • Pooling water in certain areas of the drive
  • Crumbling along the sides or edges
  • Pitting, flaking, or staining on the surface of the driveway

Don’t ignore cracks in your driveway, and hope they won’t get worse. They will not go away over time and, in fact, will get worse. The faster you act, the less invasive and less expensive the repair will be.

Is Concrete Driveway Repair Necessary? 

Yes, the longer driveway issues are left unaddressed, the more extensive the damage becomes. This limits your repair options and may mean that expensive replacement is your only option.

Over time, concrete driveways may settle and crack. However, due to moisture levels in the soil and the character of the strata, this settling often happens unevenly. The repeated freeze-thaw cycles in Ohio winter and spring don’t help either! Regular expansion and contraction of the soil beneath the driveway exacerbates the cracking and shifting.

When you book concrete lifting at the first sign of trouble, though, you can prevent further damage to the driveway and have more cost-effective repair options.

Our experts evaluate the damage and its cause and develop a plan for repair that fits your budget and timeline.

What Are the Benefits of Concrete Driveway Repair? 

The visual appeal of a level, uncracked driveway immediately boosts your home’s aesthetic and value, but there are reasons beyond the cosmetic for prompt concrete driveway repair:

  • Addressing the underlying reasons for concrete deterioration and shifting can prevent further damage. Proper water flow, correcting drainage issues, and preventing additional soil erosion can safeguard the driveway and prevent these issues from recurring.
  • Your home will be safer. You don’t risk damaging your car’s tires each time you pull in or out of the driveway, and fixing the cracks removes a trip hazard. Leveling the driveway can also eliminate pools of standing water after rain or snow.
  • Improving your curb appeal with a clean, smooth driveway. It makes your house more inviting and, when you’re ready to sell, preserves its value and attractiveness to buyers.

Unlike a quick fix that simply seals the cracks, The Basement Guys’ techniques are designed to provide lasting results. We inspect your foundation, driveway, and surrounding strata, then present you with our findings and repair recommendations.

Our PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting system delivers lasting results with minimal environmental impact. You’ll be amazed at the unparalleled benefits this advanced technology offers.

How We Install Concrete Driveway Repair 

The Basement Guys PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting process involves the following steps:

  • Assess the extent of the damage with a thorough inspection and develop a repair plan
  • Drill strategic penny-sized holes in the affected areas
  • Insert an injection port into each hole
  • Inject freshly prepared high-density polyurethane foam into each hole beneath the driveway slab
  • The foam takes about 15 minutes to expand and fill the voids beneath the driveway. Then we:
  • Ensure that the slab is properly lifted and stabilized
  • Remove the injection ports from the slab
  • Fill and smooth the bores
  • Seal any cracks with top-quality protective sealant

Once we finish, we recommend you enroll in our annual driveway maintenance plan to preserve the life of the repair. Our plans include routine maintenance and an annual inspection of our work.
