Driveway Repair

Your driveway is an integral part of your home, but damaged concrete in this area can pose significant problems. A cracked and sinking driveway diminishes your home’s appearance, decreases property value, and can quickly become a safety hazard.

Bay Area Underpinning, leveraging the cutting-edge SettleStop™ PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting system, offers a proficient solution to restore your driveway’s safety, appearance, and structural integrity. Polyurethane foam effectively lifts and stabilizes driveway slabs by injecting a lightweight, durable foam beneath them.

Homeowners across the Bay Area have relied on us for nearly 20 years to lift, stabilize, and repair their concrete. They know they can count on us for personalized service and lasting repairs.

This page explains why our state-of-the-art concrete driveway lifting and repair service is the best solution for your home.

What is Concrete Driveway Repair?

Concrete driveway repair involves fixing damaged, cracked, or sunken concrete within your property to restore height, stability, and aesthetics.

Conventional repair methods, such as mudjacking and repouring, are invasive, expensive, temporary, and do not address the root of the problem.

The core of Bay Area Underpinning’s exclusive repair solution—concrete lifting with polyurethane injections—is a pivotal component of a comprehensive whole-home solution, ensuring a visually appealing, safe, and functional living space.

Our customizable PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting system addresses issues caused by unstable underlying soil and oversaturation, providing a long-lasting solution that benefits your driveway and overall home environment. By optimizing your driveway’s health, you improve your home’s curb appeal, performance, and value.

Signs Your Concrete Driveway Needs Repair

It’s crucial to address driveway problems before they worsen. Signs that your concrete driveway needs repair include:

  • Various cracks or large fissures wider than ¼”
  • Sinking slabs or uneven, dipping areas of the driveway
  • Water collecting in areas on or near the driveway after rain
  • Deteriorating, crumbing sides and edges
  • Related damage like pitting, flaking, or staining on the concrete’s surface

Early detection prevents safety issues, further damage, and costly repairs. Contact Bay Area Underpinning for effective driveway repair solutions you can trust.

Is Concrete Driveway Repair Necessary?

Yes, timely repair is crucial. Due to soil instability and other environmental factors, most concrete driveways will eventually crack and settle.

Neglecting repairs allows moisture beneath the driveway to worsen erosion and sinking. The longer you delay addressing the issue, the more severe the driveway damage becomes, limiting your available repair options.

Early concrete lifting fixes your driveway before problems escalate, preventing the need for complete replacement in the future. Repairing your driveway as soon as issues appear is the most affordable and effective approach.

It also allows our experts to fully evaluate your property for foundation settling that may be contributing to the driveway damage.

What Are the Benefits of Concrete Driveway Repair?

There are many advantages to repairing your driveway with concrete lifting, including:

  • Preventing Further Damage: Fixing cracks and lifting your sunken driveway prevents continued concrete deterioration. Water flow will cease, preventing further soil erosion. You protect your investment from needing more extensive repairs later.
  • Improved Safety: Raising settled sections and filling cracks creates an even, flat driveway surface. This corrects tipping hazards and eliminates dangerous rain puddles, making the driveway safe and functional.
  • Enhanced Curb Appeal: A clean, smooth driveway improves your home’s appearance and can boost property value.
  • Customized Solution: Our experts provide customized repairs based on your property’s unique needs, rather than a one-size-fits-all quick fix. We evaluate the driveway and the foundation to address the root causes, not just the symptoms. Our solution ensures long-lasting repairs.

Implementing repairs with proper execution, superior products, and expertise is crucial. Our PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting system, developed explicitly for durability, efficiency, and minimal environmental impact, ensures you receive unparalleled benefits.

FAQs

Concrete driveways sink, crack, and sustain other damage due to erosion beneath the slabs caused by expansive soil, soil instability, water intrusion from cracks, and growing tree roots. Heavy vehicles parked in the same place for extended periods can also cause driveways to sink. Contact Bay Area Underpinning for a free inspection to determine the source of the problem and the best solution.

Remarkably, the PolyRenewal™ system cures within 15 minutes, allowing almost immediate use after installation, ensuring minimal disruption to your routine. This is more efficient than methods like repouring or mudjacking, which can take several days to cure before the driveway is functional again.
