Applications

Often, with new or existing construction, the subsoil (subgrade) will compact or erode, resulting in settled concrete. CRC Concrete Raising has received an increased number of calls, inquiries, and referrals due to our ability to raise settled concrete that is otherwise structurally sound.

As a preventive measure in unstable soils, CRC Concrete Raising has provided various grouting techniques, occasionally in conjunction with piering services, to compact and/or solidify loose soils.

As a corrective measure, the process of concrete raising functionally restores settled or sunken concrete back to its original grade. Additionally, CRC Concrete Raising, through on-the-job experience and knowledge, is often able to facilitate excess water removal by way of providing proper pitch to concrete areas (subject to original pour and adjacent land grade).

Please refer to the CRC Concrete Raising pages for residentialcommercialindustrial, and municipal (including State DOT) applications for raising and stabilizing concrete.


Residential

Most any concrete slab-on-grade can be raised. CRC Concrete Raising can raise, level, and/or stabilize:

  • Sidewalks
  • Steps and Stoops
  • Patios
  • Driveways
  • Pool Decks
  • Garage Floors (attached and/or detached)
  • Basement Floors
  • Building Foundations

CRC Concrete Raising has received an increased number of calls and inquiries from home owners and property managers looking to reduce “trip and fall liability” concerns, areas of ponding due to poor slope or pitch, and/or owners seeking to bring existing concrete back to code and/or increasing the aesthetic appeal prior to a potential sale.

As a result of the proprietary CRC process, the raised and/or stabilized concrete can sustain a person’s bodyweight immediately, and (in the case of a residential driveway) the area can be driven on in a matter of hours. Re-landscaping and landfill expenses common with concrete replacement are not incurred via the process of concrete raising.


Commercial/Industrial Applications

Commercial work

Most any concrete slab-on-grade can be raised. CRC Concrete Raising can raise, level, and/or stabilize:

  • Sidewalks & Common Entrances
  • Interior Floors (Factory, Warehouse, Distribution Centers)
  • Parking Lots & Driveways
  • Delivery Ramps & Loading Docks
  • Equipment Pads
  • Pool Decks
  • Airport Areas
  • Building Foundations

CRC Concrete Raising has received an increased number of calls and inquiries from property owners and managers, including facilities and maintenance managers and their respective associations, looking to reduce “trip and fall liability” concerns, areas of ponding water due to poor slope or pitch, and/or owners seeking to bring existing concrete back to code and/or increasing the aesthetic appeal prior to a potential sale.

The benefits of raising concrete as opposed to “tear-out and replace”:

Reduce Liability Vertical offsets in concrete are hazardous to individuals, equipment, and items atop it. Concrete raising will effectively reduce and eliminate vertical offsets in concrete that are often associated with trip-and-fall injury claims, equipment repair, and product loss.

Minimal Disruption & Down Time Raising concrete and void filling by way of CRC’s calibrated cement-grouting process allows CRC to confine work to specific areas and partition off those areas sequentially. Unlike concrete replacement, factories and warehouses do not have to shut down and remove items from the entire facility.

Long-Term Repair CRC’s process and the ability to use metered materials allows for the provision of industry-leading warranties. The process of raising and void filling will compact and densify loose soils, displacing air and water found within the soil, allowing for a stable underlying sub-grade.

Engineered, Environmentally-Safe Solutions CRC utilizes calibrated volumetric mixers to place an environmentally-safe cement grout (slurry) beneath an existing concrete slab. Consistent, homogenized grout, produced by state-of-the-art equipment is what makes CRC Concrete Raising a leader in the concrete raising industry.

Cost Effective Concrete raising is cheaper than the alternative of concrete replacement. Other repair methodologies exist, but do not carry the ability to provide the long-term warranties and void filling capabilities produced by the CRC method.

In addition to the benefits listed above, and as a result of the proprietary CRC process, it should be readily noted that the raised and/or stabilized concrete can sustain a person’s bodyweight immediately, and (in the case of vehicle traffic areas) the area can be driven on in a matter of hours. Re-landscaping and landfill expenses common with concrete replacement are not incurred via the process of concrete raising.


Municipal & State DOT Applications

Repairing curbs

Most any concrete slab-on-grade can be raised. CRC Concrete Raising can raise, level, and/or stabilize the following, while meeting the National Standards for Raising and Leveling Concrete:

  • Sidewalks
  • Concrete Pavement / Concrete Streets
  • Curb and Gutter
  • Concrete Highways
  • Bridge Approaches
  • Public Pool Decks
  • Parking Lots
  • Building Foundations

CRC Concrete Raising has received an increased number of calls and inquiries from Municipal and State Department of Transportation (DOT) officials/engineers, looking to reduce “trip and fall liability” concerns, areas of ponding water due to poor slope or pitch, and/or officials seeking to bring existing concrete back to code and/or increasing the longevity of existing concrete within an acceptable, approved budget for repair.

As a result of the proprietary CRC process, the raised and/or stabilized concrete can sustain a person’s bodyweight immediately, and (in the case of vehicle traffic areas) the area can be driven on in a matter of hours. Re-landscaping and landfill expenses common with concrete replacement are not incurred via the process of concrete raising.


New Construction Applications

Often, with new construction, the subsoil (subgrade) will compact or erode, resulting in settled concrete. With the increases in new construction as compared to historical figures, CRC Concrete Raising has received an increased number of calls, inquiries, and referrals due to our ability to raise settled concrete that is otherwise structurally sound.

As a preventive measure in unstable soils, CRC Concrete Raising has provided various grouting techniques, occasionally in conjunction with piering services, to compact and/or solidify loose soils.
