Sidewalk Leveling & Lifting in Birmingham
Your Solution for Sinking & Settling Sidewalks
Concrete sidewalks that have sunk in areas because of soil erosion and settlement are not only an ugly sight to see but also a trip hazard. This can bring about serious injuries when a person does not notice the unevenness in time and finds themselves sprawled on the sidewalk after tripping. This problem is common, particularly in areas where soil erosion, settlement, and consolidation occur. Ox Foundation Solutions has the perfect solution for your sidewalk sinking problems: concrete lifting.

Why Your Sidewalk Has Sunken Concrete & Needs Leveling
The inconsistency of the moisture level in the soil underneath your sidewalk will have a huge bearing on whether it moves. If you live in an area that has warm summers and very cold winters, there is a strong possibility that you will soon see your sidewalks sinking because of consolidation. This is because the soil underneath your sidewalk expands and contracts with the changing weather.
When you have improper drainage, you will also find that sidewalks will soon sink, particularly if the soil underneath it was improperly compacted. When it rains and there is no proper drainage system to direct runoff away from your property, the water can create its own path, usually in soil that is somewhat loose and easy to pass through. This is when settlement occurs underneath sidewalks and concrete slabs.
How to Remedy Concrete Slab Settlement on Your Sidewalk
When you notice your home’s sidewalk sinking because of settlement, don’t let the problem go untouched. Remedy it immediately by contacting a specialist in concrete lifting and leveling like Ox Foundation Solutions.
Letting the problem sit without being fixed will only create a bigger problem. This is because the space underneath the sidewalk where it has sunk will collect water, further eroding the soil and increasing the area where the sidewalk is sinking. Get the right solution fast by contacting a concrete lifting and leveling expert immediately to address the problem.
Effective & Efficient Sunken Concrete Sidewalk Lifting with OxPoly
Ox Foundation Solutions uses a revolutionary and cost-effective solution to lift your sidewalks back to their original level and to secure these in place. This is with the use of a substance called OxPoly. With this process, you can get your sidewalk back to normal in less time than it takes to replace the area with a new concrete slab.
The process begins with the drilling of small holes in the affected area. These holes are then injected with an expanding geotechnical foam, which fills up the eroded area and lifts the sunken portion of your sidewalk, returning it to its original level. OxPoly is a much better alternative to traditional mudjacking, which uses the same principles since the foam is lightweight but durable. This means it won’t sink the slab further or cause more settling since it is not heavy like the slurry used in mudjacking.
