Concrete Lifting & Repair in Charlottesville, VA

As a homeowner in Charlottesville, VA, it’s crucial to maintain the concrete around your house and foundation. Concrete is a durable substance, but it is nevertheless susceptible to damage. Structures like concrete driveways, sidewalks, and steps can crack, sink, and become uneven over time. This is largely due to Charlottesville’s problematic soil and weather. 

Without having to completely replace the concrete on your property, concrete lifting with polyurethane injections is the best way to restore damaged concrete. You can trust our team at JES Foundation Repair to evaluate the concrete around your home because our specialists are fully aware of what to look for. We are also well-versed in Charlottesville’s hot, muggy, and rainy weather as well as the silty loam and silty clay soil and how these factors impact concrete.

Causes of Concrete Damage in Charlottesville

Concrete can sustain damage for a variety of reasons, but the most common causes have to do with concrete structures being exposed to the elements. The silty loam and silty clay soil common in the area can dry out in hot weather and swell when oversaturated. Charlottesville usually gets around 45 inches of rain every year, which is well above the national average. This can lead to soil washout and erosion that leaves concrete without proper support.

Soil washout causes issues with your home’s concrete, such as concrete shifting and unstable concrete slabs.

Soil Shrinkage, Compaction, and Settling

Concrete depends on the sturdiness of the soil beneath it. When soil shrinks, compacts, and settles, your concrete gets damaged as the ground beneath it moves.

Concrete Lifting Solutions in Charlottesville

Instead of outdated, invasive techniques like mud jacking, JES offers a state-of-the-art concrete lifting solution. PolyRenewal™ polyurethane injections are lightweight, durable, easy to install, quick curing, and versatile. We can use this solution to lift concrete sidewalks, driveways, patios, pool decks, steps, interior slab floors, and more. Once the polyurethane foam is injected under the concrete, it expands to fill any voids, and this allows for the precise lifting and stabilization of the slabs.
