Driveway or Garage Floor Got You Down? Let Acme Concrete Give It A Lift!

Uneven surfaces, cracks, water pooling where you don’t want it to, and feeling a large “bump” when you drive into your garage can all be symptoms of a big underlying problem: GROUND SETTLEMENT.

Driveways depend on a suitable subbase to provide the necessary support for heavy slabs and the loads they were designed to carry. If the subbase beneath concrete was not constructed with proper materials, or was not adequately compacted, settlement is the likely outcome. As the subbase fails, the driveway loses the support critical to slab stability. Over time, as the subbase worsens, the concrete becomes stressed from the weight of vehicle traffic and the weight of the slab itself. The result? The driveway begins to fail, cracks develop and the slabs drop. You may notice water doesn’t drain like it used to. Perhaps the driveway becomes misaligned with a sidewalk or curb. Maybe it’s becoming harder to get a vehicle over the “bump” at the garage entrance.

Garage floors fail from settlement issues. Most garage floors are simply concrete slabs poured within the confines of foundation walls. Similar to basement floors, these “floating” slabs depend on a stable subbase just like driveways.

We provide quick, economical solutions to settled driveways and garage floors. We correct pitch, level joints and fill voids under the slabs. Our Smart Lift System can raise your driveway or garage floor and provide the strong support structure needed to sustain heavy loads.
