How Long Does A-1 Concrete Leveling’s Process Last?

A-1 Concrete Leveling Western New York uses proprietary concrete raising equipment to “Help Raise Buffalo to Higher Ground” by raising settled concrete back to original position through the use of specialized technology and expert personnel. 

Over the past 8 years I have completed almost 5000 estimates and we have raised over 25,000 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.

The quick 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 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.

Take a look below at the original Before and After pictures from a driveway project in 2007.  Then, as a testament to longevity, check out the Before-After-Now photo from this year which is 7 years after the project was completed and you can decide for yourself how long concrete leveling lasts.

A-1 Concrete Leveling keeps a patio from falling away into the abyss…..

It has been 8 years for A-1 Concrete Leveling raising almost 20,000 sunken concrete slabs in Western New York. Time fly’s when you see years of learning and expertise re-create something new out of something old. It’s not about the biggest jobs or the smallest jobs it’s about knowing when you have contributed to a positive result!!! 

During the past week we had an opportunity to revive a patio that was sinking fast enough to consider how long it would take for the patio to end up in China.  Saving money is great; but saving time and money is smart and why not be greedy when it comes to your time and money?

A-1 Concrete Leveling provides an opportunity to “Pump it Up” instead of pulling it out!
