Common Concrete Problems in Baltimore


Detecting concrete problems often doesn’t require a keen eye. Signs of damage, such as concrete cracks, sinking or uneven slabs, pitted areas, stains, or flaking surfaces, are usually quite noticeable. You may spot these issues on your Baltimore home’s driveway or sidewalk, exterior concrete steps, porch, patio, pool deck, or garage floor.

These problems are more than just cosmetic annoyances that tarnish your home’s appearance and lower its value. They pose significant safety risks, such as tripping hazards. Hence, it’s vital to identify and repair them promptly to ensure your home remains safe, appearance, and retains its market value.

Causes of Concrete Damage in Baltimore

Concrete damage can stem from various sources. It may result from poor mixing or pouring of concrete or even from continual wear and tear, exacerbated by its exposure to outdoor elements. However, environmental conditions, particularly weather and soil type, often stand out as the main causes behind concrete issues.

The loam soil around Baltimore—characterized by its silty, clay, and gravelly composition—can easily destabilize, particularly given the region’s average annual rainfall of 42 inches. This instability can lead to soil sinking, causing concrete slabs to settle. Additionally, soil washout can deprive concrete of the support it requires, leading to further problems. Consequently, understanding these underlying factors is key to effectively addressing concrete damage.

Polyurethane Foam Leveling in Baltimore

Concrete leveling methods such as mudjacking, repouring, and replacement can be costly, time-consuming, and often fall short of addressing the underlying issue.

A more innovative, reliable, and enduring solution is the PolyRenewal™ polyurethane injection method, exclusively available from JES Foundation Repair. The foam utilized in this solution is impressively lightweight yet sturdy, and it sets rapidly. Its versatility makes it suitable for a range of applications – from your pool deck and outdoor steps to your driveway and sidewalk and more.

4 star due to scheduling issues I had and having to call to get the work completed.Joe Crossfield/David Gaskins/Larry and crew were great.Joe was the sales guy that came out to quote us for the work. He was very polite and was honest about what needed to be done. He didn’t upsell us on any add ons and helped us save a little bit of money by offering alternatives for the encapsulation project.Larry and crew: they came and did the work and did a great job. Cleaned up after themselves and completed the work. Not sure if it was the day or the overwhelming work the crew had, but I felt like I was rushed when I asked questions and felt like an inconvenience when I did asked questions. So I didn’t appreciate that.David Gaskins: was polite and explained how to clean the dehumidifier and all that. Explained what the RH% should be in the crawlspace and showed me how to work the dehumidifier. I originally called because I wanted my encapsulated crawlspace to be at 40% RH but it wasn’t getting there. He explained to me that it is possible for the machine to get down that low but explained the issue that I may have with my foundation and wood beam. He was very honest and did not rush me when I was asking the questions.Cons:-After paying the deposit, I had to give the office a call to schedule my appointment. I would think that they would call me to schedule and get it on the books, but that did not happen.-the scheduler scheduled the encapsulation, but not the electricians subcontractor. You would think that they should schedule the electrician first before the work so that the work is totally complete once the crew comes. I ended up calling the office, getting the phone number to the electricians, and calling the electricians myself to get something scheduled since the office could only email the subcontractor to be put on the books.

First and foremost, I NEVER write reviews; however, I found it necessary in this case because the two young men who came to perform the work were true professionals. Foreman Michael Kuffour and Co-foreman Alan Brown arrived on time! They professionally introduced themselves. I felt immediately at ease because once I directed them to the area that needed repair, they quickly communicated operation issues and recommended changes so that the work to be performed was accurately understood in layperson's terms. They utilized precision measuring instruments and fixtures to measure the dimensions of finished work pieces: downspouts and sump pump operations. They were extremely conscientious and ensured that work complied with all relevant codes, standards, and job specifications. They followed procedures to maintain the work environment neat and orderly. Mike, the Project Supervisor, arrived. Mike was knowledgeable and provided information on further work and any materials and equipment needed. He communicated ways to gain efficiencies and more effective installation methods in collaboration with us (the customer), which I greatly appreciated so that we could meet the goals and work towards a final resolution to our water problem. He inspected the Encapsulation work under the crawl space also. Once the meeting was over, I felt secure that the remainder of the result would be proficiently performed and up to code. I recommend JES to anyone, for they provide A-1 work. The guys that they sent were tens (10) in every sense. For this, I give them five stars ***** . Thank You

Had the pleasure of dealing with Jason Gamse today and he did an excellent job of not only educating us in regards to the work his company does but also assisting us in the best process to get what we needed done to our home. He was the third person that came out and the saying “save the best for last” definitely applied to him. After this job is done we will come back for any future work needed for our home and definitely ask for him personally.

Foreman David Gaskins came to our house after our basement was waterproofed. Some water came in from a heavy rain and and a repair we were promised was not done. David inspected the waterproofing work and found what needed to be done to be sure water would not come in again. This has been a very stressful time for us but David has been wonderful and gone above and beyond to keep in constant touch with us and coming up with a plan on how to make the corrections. We are just so thankful that he is the one that came to our house to look at what the problem was. Your company is lucky to have him.

The inspector came out two times and was professional and thorough. He didn't a great deal of time walking me through options and modifications and discussing the process and timeline for doing the work. Follow up scheduling was very easy and convenient.
