How Long Does Concrete Leveling Last???
Over the past 9 years I have completed almost 6000 estimates and we have raised over 30,000 slabs. One of the most common questions I’m asked is “How long does concrete leveling last?” Good questions often have more than one answer. Let me start with the Before-After-Now photo from this year which is 9 years after the project was completed and you can decide for yourself how long concrete leveling lasts.
The answer is years but it depends on a number of variables. It is similar to asking how long car tires last. Well, it depends. Are they being used on a race car or grandma’s car? Are they used in rough or snowy conditions? Is the driver aggressive and flooring it every time they come off a stop light or is every drive like a Sunday afternoon stroll in the countryside?
If the concrete is caulked and any drainage issues are resolved A-1 Concrete Leveling’s work will last for many many years. We use high density limestone based slurry which fills voided areas below slabs and generates the pressure to raise those sunken slabs back to their original position. One need not look further than the endurance of the Pyramids, also made of limestone, to know it has the potential to outlast an Egyptian Dynasty or many nasty Northeastern winters.
