RV Pad Concrete Lifting
Concrete is a sensible material to use for your RV pad. Not only is it cost-effective, but it is durable and relatively simple to throw. That said, even well-laid concrete does not last forever. Wear and tear and natural occurrences like annual snowmelt will inevitably cause damage over time. After a while, you may see cracks in the concrete, or perhaps even crumbling. You could also notice your concrete beginning to sink, with some areas lying lower than others, creating an uneven surface.
Is sinking concrete normal?
Sinking concrete is no reason to panic. In Utah, it is normal for concrete to sink over time. Remember, concrete rests on the soil beneath, which is not uniform and will not hold its integrity forever. Over time, different soils will settle differently, with the effect that your concrete could sink in unpredictable ways. Water is another factor that plays its role, as it can wash away the soil upon which your concrete slab rests. But even if this is a natural and expected process, it is still inconvenient. Aside from providing a less than ideal surface for your RV, the unevenness of the concrete poses a tripping hazard for your family. The unevenness of the surface can also make it difficult for wheels to roll smoothly over it. Of course, there are also aesthetic considerations: damaged concrete simply looks unappealing and creates an impression of being rundown.
We fix sinking RV pads
If your concrete RV pad is sinking, this is not something you have to put up with. You could rip out the concrete and pour a new slab for your RV pad. Of course, a new slab would be nice, but you’ll end up paying quite a lot for the work involved, and it can take days to do. The concrete you’ve ripped up has to be disposed of, which poses new challenges if you’re concerned about minimizing your impact on the environment.
There is a cheaper, faster and greener alternative to a total replacement: RV pad concrete lifting. Rather than replacing your RV slab, this process simply raises and levels your existing concrete through a process called mud jacking.
What's the process?
Here’s what to expect. First, small holes will be drilled into your RV slab. Next, a filler grout is injected into the space below the concrete, hydraulically raising the level of the concrete surface from below. From start to finish, the work takes a few hours, after which you can roll your RV back into place. If the work is done well, you shouldn’t even be able to see that the concrete had ever been uneven.
