Why do concrete sidewalks sink and crack?
Concrete walkways and sidewalks are exposed to a lot of wear and tear. When the soil supporting the concrete becomes weak, the concrete can crack, sink and become uneven.
There are many things that can create a void beneath the concrete slab, such as erosion from rainwater or gutter runoff, or a tree root that rots over time. Dirt fill underneath the slab that is not well compacted can also create voids beneath the concrete sidewalks.
Needing sidewalk repair is normal and common. Regardless of what caused your sidewalk to sink, we can fix it - quickly!
Who’s responsible for sidewalk repair in Florida?
Some municipalities in Florida 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 city’s sidewalk regulations.

Advantages of PolyLevel® for sidewalk repair
Concrete lifting with PolyLevel® is a practical, affordable solution for concrete sidewalk repair.
Fast results buy you time
PolyLevel® means minimal disruption and fast results. Sidewalks can be ready to use within 15 minutes, there’s nearly 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.
Affordable and long-lasting
PolyLevel® for sidewalk repair is much less costly than mudjacking or replacing the concrete, and it’s a long-lasting solution. It’s waterproof, environmentally-friendly and will last longer than the actual concrete sidewalk it’s supporting.
Less disruptive to the landscaping… and life
If the concrete is replaced - ripped out and repoured - the grass surrounding it can be damaged from the heavy equipment and the removal of the old concrete slab. PolyLevel® doesn’t do any damage to surrounding landscapes. Plus, because it cures quickly, it won’t disrupt your life.
Before and after sidewalk repair
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 with PolyLevel®, we turned the sunken sidewalk into a safe, level surface.
