Garage Slab

garage slab lifting and leveling kansas cityIf you have noticed that your garage slab has become unlevel and is sinking, this is probably due to the soil beneath your garage slab. The soil in the Kansas City and St. Louis, MO area is expansive soil, which means that is expands when wet and shrinks when dry. This shifting of the soil beneath the garage slab will cause the slab to shift and move and sink into any voids beneath the slab. Other causes of settled or sinking garage slabs are:

  • If the soil was not properly compacted, it does not take long for the soil to settle and start forming voids underneath the slab.
  • Summer droughts cause moisture to evaporate from the soil causing the soil to shrink.
  • Improper down spout drainage can cause significant water saturation of an area and soil erosion. This will cause the basement slab to settle.
  • The cracks that form in the concrete due to settlement give water direct access to run beneath the slab causing further erosion.

All of these conditions only get worse as time goes on causing even more damage to your garage slab. When your garage slab falls victim to soil settlement it can put abnormal pressure on the foundation walls cracking them and creating expensive foundation repair.
