Concrete Lifting in Omaha
While homeowners in Omaha take great pride in the health and safety of their homes, few pay attention to the concrete slabs outside.
Cracked, uneven, and sinking driveway, sidewalk, patio or pool deck slabs create serious tripping hazards, especially for those most vulnerable, like children and the elderly. In addition to the safety of your loved ones, uneven concrete steals value from your home and will become a big problem if you’re looking to sell. Buyers often walk away or use uneven concrete as a way to negotiate the price down.
When you start to notice problems, tackling them right away will ensure issues won’t escalate and cause additional damage. Groundworks Omaha offers the cutting-edge SettleStop PolyRenewal™ system. We’ll explain, in detail, why PolyRenewal™ is the best choice for long-term solutions.

Why Is My Omaha Concrete Slab Sinking?
Omaha’s silt-loam soil and above-average precipitation mean soil shrinkage and compaction is the main reason for sunken concrete in the Omaha area. When the soil below the concrete slabs gets saturated, it expands, during periods of dry weather, the soil contracts leaving gaps beneath the slab. Without the soil for support, slabs settle into these gaps, sinking, shifting, and moving.
Another possible reason your driveway or patio slabs have sunk is due to soil washout. Heavy rains wash out soil and the remaining soil can no longer bear the weight of the concrete slab on top of it. This will also lead to sinking and cracking.
In addition, Omaha’s hot summers and freezing winter weather create frequent freeze-thaw cycles, one of concrete’s major enemies. When the temperature drops, moisture under the concrete slabs freezes. As water freezes, it expands, pushing the concrete slab up and weakening the concrete. When the moisture melts, the concrete is no longer supported and drops or sags. This movement causes concrete to sink and crack.
While the soil beneath your slabs cannot be replaced, Groundworks Omaha offers revolutionary concrete lifting solutions that restore property values and peace of mind.

Avoid Pricey Replacement with SettleStop PolyRenewal™
PolyRenewal™ is a two-part polymer. This concrete lifting solution, when injected under the slab, through small holes, it slowly and gently expands to raise the sunken slab to a smooth finish. This process is a huge improvement over the older mudjacking repair option because mudjacking required a much more complicated installation, a longer cure time, and is frequently washed out.
SettleStop PolyRenewal™ can be used to lift any concrete slabs. Driveways, sidewalks, pool decks, and patios can all be lifted back to their original positions.
With a cure time of around 15 minutes, exceptional lifting power, non-invasive installation, and waterproof formula that both fixes the symptom and the root cause, SettleStop PolyRenewal™ is the most comprehensive solution for Omaha homeowners.
Installation is simpler than you may expect, with little to no disruption to homeowners’ landscaping.
Concrete slab patios, driveways, pool decks, sidewalks, porches, and slab floors can all be lifted and repaired using SettleStop PolyRenewal™.
