How to Prevent a Possible Sinking Slab?

  • Seal all open cracks and joints with a polyurethane or silicone caulk. Large gaps can be filled with a backer rod first and then caulked on top.
  • Make sure downspouts are discharging at least five feet away from any concrete slab – the farther the better.
  • Tightly pack any open sides of a slab with soil to ensure runoff water is not going below the concrete.
  • If you are having new concrete installed, ensure the base is at least 4” of gravel and gets compacted. The base should not move when you stomp your feet on it. Also, install all downspouts that are close to any slab such as a walkway should be installed below the concrete and extended into the yard.
