Trip hazards should be taken very seriously for many reasons. You never know when someone could get seriously hurt. Aside from someone getting hurt on your property, we live in a society that it’s becoming more and more common for people to pursue legal action. These trip hazards most times can be lifted or raised back to their original height and grade. This is a service that many people are not aware of. Our process for lifting concrete is done with a high density polyurethane foam that is injected through small holes drilled into the surface of the concrete. Once injected it takes seconds for the foam to react and begin to lift the concrete. Once the process of applying foam in short bursts is complete then we carefully patch the injection holes and your concrete is ready for normal use before we leave your property.

What Causes Unstable Soil?
Poor drainage, improperly placed downspouts, leaking drain pipes, and broken water lines are common culprits.
Construction trash pits, buried trees, and other biodegradable materials all break down. Sometimes structures are built over these areas.
When backfilling on a jobsite, the contractor is supposed to compact the backfill by driving over it with heavy equipment. However, this isn’t always done properly for one reason or another.
Processes of freezing and thawing essentially accelerate erosion processes. Cold weather freezes moisture trapped in tiny cracks. When this water freezes, it expands, subsequently pushing on the rocks and breaking them into smaller pieces. As processes of freezing and thawing continue, rock and sediment are continually broken down.
