As a business owner, you know just how important it is to maintain a good appearance. Everything from your uniforms to your signage to your building has to present the right look to people. Making a good first impression is especially important in a world of increasing competition, so you have to make sure that every part of your business looks the best. It can be easy to overlook some things that you see everyday, like a sun-faded sign or cracking and sinking concrete. When it comes to your concrete, you should be especially concerned. Not only does damaged concrete not look good, it can also lead to an injury, which you probably don’t want to pay for.
At B & B Concrete Lifting here in Chicago, we make it easy and affordable to repair the concrete around your business. In this entry, we’ll cover the basics of how concrete starts to sink and crack, as well as how our concrete repair process works and why it is so much better than having to repour all of your concrete slabs. Read on or call us today find out how we can make your concrete look almost brand new again.
Why Concrete Sinks and Cracks
Unless your concrete has been driven over by vehicles that are extremely heavy or a bunch of heavy objects were dropped onto the concrete, the most common reason that concrete cracks and sinks is because of erosion. But this kind of erosion isn’t visible, it takes place underneath your slabs and can be caused by heavy precipitation, improper drainage, or poor work on behalf of the company who originally poured the slabs and didn’t level the ground correctly.
Over time, soil can also compact and force the slabs to sink unevenly which leads to cracking. Compaction and erosion are both problems that can become potentially dangerous if not dealt with. In addition to the possible dangers they pose, broken and cracked concrete can turn potential clients away.
