What is Concrete Driveway Repair? 

Addressing the visible imperfections and potential hazards of a damaged concrete driveway is needed.  

Traditional methods such as mudjacking, or completely replacing the concrete, have become outdated; they are costly, less durable, and do not address the underlying issues. 

At Innovative Basement Systems, our exclusive PolyRenewal™ system targets the underlying issues caused by unstable soil and excess water, offering a comprehensive solution that not only repairs your driveway but also enhances the overall appeal of your property.  

A well-maintained driveway adds curb appeal, improves the functionality of your home, and has the potential to increase its market value. 

Signs Your Concrete Driveway Needs Repair 

Recognizing the signs of wear and tear early on can lead to significant cost savings and prevent further damage.  

Here’s what to look for: 

  • Visible Cracks: Noticeable cracks or deep fissures exceeding a quarter inch in width. 
  • Sinking Sections: Areas of the driveway appear to sag. 
  • Pooling Water: Accumulation of water on or near the driveway. 
  • Edges Deteriorating: The sides of the driveway showing signs of crumbling. 
  • Additional Surface Concerns: Pitting, flaking, or changes in the concrete’s color. 

Addressing these issues promptly can stop their progression, averting more severe problems, potential safety hazards, and costly future repairs. Rely on Innovative Basement Systems for your driveway solutions. 

Is Concrete Driveway Repair Necessary?  

Yes. Repairing your concrete driveway is not just necessary—it’s crucial. Over time, all concrete driveways are susceptible to the challenges posed by shifting soil, tree roots, and the freeze-thaw cycles common in our climate. 

Postponing necessary repairs allows moisture to seep underneath the driveway, accelerating erosion and causing further settling. Procrastination only exacerbates the problem, narrowing your repair options and escalating costs. 

Early intervention with concrete lifting ensures comprehensive driveway lifting before conditions worsen.  

Additionally, our team will assess whether your foundation is contributing to your driveway issues, offering a whole-home solution. 

What Are the Benefits of Concrete Driveway Repair? 

Opting for concrete lifting for your driveway comes with numerous benefits: 

  • Damage Mitigation: Addressing cracks and lifting sunken areas prevents further damage, stops water infiltration, and halts soil erosion—protecting your investment and circumventing costlier repairs down the line. 
  • Enhanced Safety: A level driveway eliminates tripping hazards and standing water, ensuring safety for all. 
  • Curb Appeal: A well-maintained driveway enhances the overall appearance of your home, potentially increasing its market value. 
  • Durable Repairs: Our team delivers lasting repairs, addressing both visible issues and underlying problems for a comprehensive solution. 

Choosing Innovative Basement Systems means choosing premium products, unparalleled expertise, and a commitment to environmental stewardship. Our PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting system is designed for longevity, efficacy, and minimal environmental impact, ensuring you receive nothing but the best.

Concrete lifting is generally more affordable and less time-consuming than replacing the entire driveway, making it a preferable option for many homeowners. Concrete replacement also doesn’t address the root cause, the unstable soil, so cracking and sinking is likely to happen again. 

Most driveway lifting projects can be completed within one day, though larger or more complex driveways may take longer. Each repaired slab, however, is ready for normal use within just 15 minutes.

Regular inspections can help ensure no further sinking occurs. Addressing any drainage issues and repairing cracks can also help maintain the driveway’s integrity.
