Do You Have a Cracked, Sunken, or Uneven Patio?
When homeowners have a cracked, sunken, or uneven patio they worry about the safety of their family and friends, as well as whether or not the unsightly damage will affect the value of their home.
Typically, homeowners are generally curious about how their patios have sunk or cracked. Therefore they want to know what they can do to prevent their patios from sinking or cracking, as well as how to identify when repairs or lifting needs to be conducted.
There will be a gradual sinking of almost all patios over time, with some sinking more than others. There is typically a reason for this since most patios are constructed over areas that are known as over-digs.
The hole excavated for the installation of the foundation should be a few feet wider than the footprint of the home in order to allow for the form installation and removal.
Following the completion of the project, this area is backfilled, but it is not typically compacted.
Consequently, the area and any items above it, such as a patio slab, will settle over time. In fact, a home’s soil can take up to ten years to fully settle.
Along with the ground settlement, downspout and drainage placement are also common causes of patio sinking. Over time, downspouts and sump pumps that discharge water alongside a patio can result in erosion of the soil and sinking of the slab.
When patios crack, it can also be a sign of settling or sinking of the ground. More often than not, this is often exacerbated as the ground dries out when the weather warms up. There is a tendency for settlement to occur unevenly, which can lead to instability of the surface.
Thereafter, cracking may occur as a result of the weight of the concrete itself or from other heavy loads, such as walking across the concrete.
The PolyLift™ Concrete Leveling System
Many homeowners who notice that their patios are sunken or have cracks choose to wait instead of immediately seeking repairs.
Of course, homeowners can treat their unlevel concrete patios by not repairing them at all.
There may be no need to decide on the type of repair right away if the unevenness is not too severe. Homeowners, however, should not delay in repairing their patios for an extended period of time.
Aside from leaving a hazardous environment around the house, doing nothing may also result in further problems if there is water pooling or running off towards the home. Consequently, water damage to the home’s foundation could occur without the homeowner’s knowledge, resulting in a more costly repair job in the future.
However, many homeowners will choose to wait if they believe that the repair and lifting process will take too long or create a mess in their homes and yards. Therefore it is essential to contact our team of patio and foundation experts at Olshan Foundation Repair, as our PolyLift concrete repair method is effective compared to other repair methods.

How The PolyLift Concrete Patio Leveling System Works
Olshan PolyLift is simple, quick, efficient, and leaves no mess behind. Here’s how our process works:
- Before PolyLift – There are many dangers associated with uneven concrete, in addition to being an eye sore. The good news is that the PolyLift installation process is straightforward and easy to complete.
- PolyLift Step 1 – The subgrade is reached by drilling a ⅝” hole through the slab, which is about the size of a dime. Afterward, we pump a Polyurethane mixture deep beneath the slab, filling the void between soil and concrete, which assists in structural stabilization.
- PolyLift Step 2 – The minimally invasive repair process is undertaken with the utmost care in order to maintain a clean and tidy work environment. If the home is structurally deficient and is highly susceptible to stress, this repair is an excellent option, as well as the most cost-effective.
- After PolyLift – Within minutes, the concrete is gently lifted, with little to no mess. Our team then patches and smooths the affected area. There is nothing complicated about the process.

Reviews of Olshan’s Concrete Patio Leveling Services
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐”Contacted Olshan regarding a free estimate for potential foundation repairs. After a short simple call, they scheduled me for an estimate the next day. Shortly after scheduling the estimate, my technician, Don, called me and quickly informed me of the general protocol, what to expect, and what steps would be taken if the foundation was found structurally compromised. The next day, Don gave me a courtesy call approximately an hour in advance to inform me that he was on his way. He arrived promptly and on-time, and was courteous, professional, and extremely knowledgeable throughout the entirety of the estimate. We concluded that I wasn’t in need of Olshan’s services at the time, but we setup a follow-up 6 months out. The entire experience was pleasant and non-intrusive, which I feel is a rarity when dealing with “free estimates.” I highly recommend contacting Olshan if you suspect any issues with you homes foundation.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐”I had an appointment with Olshan for a foundation assessment and received a call ahead from Tracy Gibbs to ask if she could come earlier than our scheduled appointment time. During the appointment, we discussed our past experience with the foundation assessment and she addressed my concerns after taking elevations that our elevations were within tolerance and no foundation repairs were needed at this time. It’s very reassuring to know that there are companies out there that still operate with integrity as a core value and don’t try to sell you something you don’t need. I was very pleased with her communication, professionalism, and honesty.”
