Why Concrete Fails Near Plano, Dallas, Allen, Lewisville, Denton
What causes sunken or cracked concrete?Concrete is pretty amazing stuff. It can be poured, shaped and made into just about anything you like. But even though it’s incredibly strong, it’s not indestructible. So, when you see cracked concrete or a driveway or patio that has sunken or broken slabs or is pitted, flaked and stained, there are reasons why these things happen. The good news is with the right materials, equipment, and help from the experienced professionals at Strive Concrete Solutions, concrete damage can be repaired.

What Lies Beneath
Poorly compacted soil: When your home was built, the movement of soil around the building site results in poor compaction. Even when the replaced soil is compacted well, it’s never as stable as the original soil. Over time, this can cause voids to form and slabs to settle.
Dry soil: Another cause of soil failure is drought. During dry conditions or even just during periods of warm weather and low precipitation, the soil under your concrete will dry out and shrink, creating voids. The concrete above eventually cracks and sinks into these empty spaces; especially if any weight is placed on it.
Flooding: When the rains return, the water has an even easier pathway under the slab due to cracks and crevices left over from the dry period. And this wet, soft soil is just too weak to support the concrete above it. In the worst case, the soil erodes and washes away completely, leaving behind large voids that cannot support the weight of the concrete above.
Pitting, Flaking and Staining
Moisture is concrete’s strongest enemy. It seeps into the pores of untreated concrete, and when temperatures drop, especially during freeze-thaw cycles, that trapped moisture expands as it turns to ice. This expansion destroys the pores and weakens the concrete. This results in concrete slabs that can pit and flake. Concrete’s porous nature also makes it susceptible to staining when left untreated.
As a homeowner, you don’t just have to worry about your own concrete slabs; you should be concerned with the slabs that make up the street that goes past your house.
During colder months, your street’s slabs contract, opening up the joints between them. Those joints then become filled with pebbles and other debris. Then, when the warm weather returns, the slabs expand again – only the joints that were designed to absorb this expansion are now filled with material that won’t compress. This leaves the expansion pressure nowhere to go except up your driveway. This “street creep,” as it is known, exerts incredible pressure on your home and can cause all sorts of problems.

Repairing Cracked Concrete Near Allen, Lewisville, Dallas, Denton, Plano
Cracked concrete happens when part of a concrete slab breaks and sinks into underlying soil that has compressed or washed away. These cracks aren’t just unsightly; they offer moisture a way to seep beneath the slab. This can cause the underlying soil to soften or even wash away completely. That in turn can cause the slab to crack further as it sinks into the void left by the washed-away soil.
To prevent moisture from seeping into the soil beneath, those cracks need to be sealed, as do the control joints that were cut between the slabs when they were first poured. While you could seal them with urethane caulk found at your local big-box DIY store, that is a solution that is prone to cracking, bubbling and drying out over time. Which means you’ll likely be sealing them again… and sooner than you thought.
The NexusPro Solution
Thankfully, fixing cracks in concrete has never been easier, thanks to a breakthrough in technology available from Strive Concrete Solutions.
NexusPro is a silicone-based sealant for joints and cracks specially formulated to provide long-lasting flexibility and to stand up to harsh weather conditions. Unlike traditional polyurethane sealants, NexusPro resists UV rays, which means it won’t crack, bubble or dry out. That means a single application can seal the joints and cracks in your concrete driveway, patio, pool deck, or sidewalk for years to come, protecting it from damage caused by soil compaction and washout.
Quick to Install, Quick to Cure
The NexusPro solution is installed by a highly-trained crew that specializes in concrete repair and protection. First, the cracks are drilled, smoothed and prepared with non-absorbent backer rod filler. Then, the NexusPro sealant is inserted in the prepared crack or control joint. Finally, the cracks are detailed with a thin layer of native sand, giving the concrete a uniform, finished appearance. And, of course, sealed concrete cracks mean no unsightly weeds growing through.
NexusPro offers several advantages over traditional concrete crack repairs:

Why Protect Your Concrete?
Moisture is concrete’s strongest enemy. It seeps into the pores of untreated concrete, and when temperatures drop, especially during freeze-thaw cycles, that trapped moisture expands as it turns to ice. This expansion destroys the pores and weakens the concrete.
Without protection, your concrete will inevitably discolor, flake and crack. This not only reduces the curb appeal – and value – of your home, it can also be dangerous for your family and guests. SealantPro concrete protection is a simple, highly-effective solution that ensures that your home’s concrete surfaces look and perform their best for years to come.
Concrete Sidewalk Repair & Leveling Near Allen, Lewisville, Dallas, Denton, Plano
If you have a concrete sidewalk that is cracked or uneven, it not only looks bad, but it can lead to a fall or serious injury.

With concrete lifting, we can make your sidewalk level again in just 15 minutes!
If you have a sunken walkway or sidewalk, contact us today to request a free estimate for concrete leveling in Dallas, Denton, Lewisville, Plano, Allen or nearby.
Why concrete walkways sink and crack
Walkways and sidewalks are exposed to a lot of wear and tear. When the soil supporting the concrete becomes weak, the concrete can crack and sink. There are many things that can create a void beneath the slab, such as erosion from rainwater or gutter runoff, or a tree root that has rotted over time. Dirt fill underneath the slab that has not been well compacted can also create voids beneath the concrete. Regardless of what’s caused your sidewalk to sink, we can fix it!
Before and after: Concrete sidewalk leveling
Look familiar? The sidewalk in front of this home settled a couple inches, creating a trip hazard and an area for water to pool. After raising the slab we were able to turn the sunken sidewalk into a safe, level surface.
Restoring the walkway with concrete leveling
Some areas require home and business owners to maintain the sidewalks adjoining their property. If someone trips and falls on the sidewalk in front of your home, you might be liable. It’s important to check your town or city’s sidewalk regulations.
Concrete lifting is a practical, affordable solution for concrete sidewalk repair. In addition to taking less time and costing you less, concrete leveling is far less disruptive to the landscaping. If the concrete is ripped out and repoured, the grass can be damaged from the heavy equipment and the removal of the old slab. With injection lifting, there’s almost no waiting for the concrete to cure before you can walk on it. With concrete replacement, it usually takes about a day for the concrete to cure.

Concrete Driveway Repair & Leveling Near Plano, Dallas, Allen, Lewisville, Denton
Concrete Driveway Repair
Do you have a concrete driveway that’s cracked, sunken and uneven?

If you have an uneven driveway that you need repaired, contact us today. We offer free estimates for concrete leveling in Dallas, Denton, Lewisville, Plano, Allen and nearby.
What causes concrete driveways to sink?Erosion is a common cause of sunken concrete. Erosion washes away soil from under your driveway, creating a void or space under the concrete slab. Your driveway can begin to sink in areas where the soil has been washed out. Clogged gutters, downspouts that are not installed correctly, and poor yard drainage can make erosion worse. A heavy load, such as an RV that’s kept in your driveway, can cause sections of the driveway to sink and crack over time. If you have a newer home with a sinking driveway, it could be because the ground around the house is settling or the base of the driveway was not compacted properly. A sinking driveway near your garage can lead to foundation cracks and expensive damage over time.
Before and after: Driveway leveling
This concrete driveway had sunk about two inches in front of the garage. Using our foam injection method, we were able to raise the concrete, making the driveway level with the garage entrance. No more ugly sunken driveway!
We can raise your uneven concrete driveway
While surface problems can likely be patched, this won’t fix the underlying settlement problem and more cracks can form in your driveway. Although do-it-yourself repairs might be less expensive, they can be messy, require special tools and equipment, and it can be as long as 30 days before you’re able to use your driveway again. No matter what’s causing your driveway to sink, we can fix the problem fast and prevent further sinking with our concrete repair services.
We offer a fast, effective option for repairing your sunken concrete driveway. First, your contractor will drill small holes in the slab. Then they will inject a high-density polyurethane through the holes. The polymer will spread beneath the slab and lift it up. Finally the holes are patched and the cracks are filled. You’ll be able to use your driveway within one day.

MudJacking & Slab Jacking Near Dallas, Denton, Lewisville, Plano, Allen
As patios, walkways, driveways, and concrete steps sink, they can crack and create uneven surfaces. Sinking concrete is unsightly, and it can create a tripping hazard.
Traditionally, this problem is often repaired by a process called mud jacking.
Mud jacking: a repair technique for lifting concrete slabs that have settled over time with a mortar-based mix.
Mud jacking involves pumping a mortar-based mixture of “mud” or “slurry” underneath a settling slab. This injected material is a mixture of water, soil, sand and Portland cement that cures to become a solid, stable fill.
As the mixture is pumped underneath the concrete slab, it fills all empty spaces and creates pressure on the slab that lifts the surface upwards. Once injected, the slurry will then harden into a solid fill that’s more stable than the soil, yet lighter than concrete.
Strive Concrete Solutions offers a fast, effective, and less invasive approach to concrete leveling. Our system involves injecting an expanding polymer foam under the concrete for a durable, long lasting solution. If you’re interested in learning about what Strive Concrete Solutions can do for you, call us for a free estimate for our alternative to mudjacking in Allen, Lewisville, Dallas, Denton, Plano and nearby.
This front stoop has started to sink and separate from the foundation. There is noticeable cracking and sloping.
Expanding foam was used to level the steps and the cracks and sloping have been repaired.
When is mud jacking NOT appropriate?
Mud jacking is effective for heavier concrete structures when used in conjunction with slab piers. It should not be considered as a standalone solution to lifting a footing or floor slab that has settled in your home.
In most cases, mud jacking alone will not be able to lift both a slab and the heavy partition walls that sit on top of it. In cases where mud jacking isn’t effective, we often recommend installing slab piers instead.
If mud jacking does lift the concrete slab, it may be difficult to control where mud jacking lifts the walls, causing them to lift unevenly.
More importantly, this kind of concrete repair solution is temporary. Even with the voids filled, the soil below is likely to continue settling over time. Ultimately, you’d have to call your contractor to your home over and over again to repeat the mud jacking process — or call someone who can use a different solution that can fix it once and for all!
Mud jacking is also not appropriate as a “do-it-yourself” repair. Mud jacking requires special equipment and professional experience. All work should be done through a trained, professional mud jacking contractor who has excellent knowledge of local soil conditions.
