It could take a few weeks, months, or years for a driveway to get to where it needs to be replaced. A sinking driveway can cause underlying issues for your basement or foundation. Of course, we advise you to call Concrete Raising Systems at the first sign of any of the issues below. Please know that waiting may make your driveway repair more costly.
Call us for a quote if the answer is “yes” to any of the questions below.
- Are the driveway slabs uneven by your garage or in the first 10 feet from the street?
- Is the driveway so uneven at the garage that you have to give your car more gas to get in your garage?

Getting driveway repair by lifting your concrete into place with foam jacking could save you thousands of dollars in costly foundation repairs in the future. A sinking or uneven driveway by your garage door leads to cracks in the concrete, leading to foundation leaks and a wet basement over time. Water follows the path of least resistance. Sunken concrete and the cracks around it may be channelling water run-off from rain or snow to the foundation below your home through the gap created between the sunken driveway and your garage.

The driveway is part of a system.
Your driveway is part of a system. When it was originally installed, the driveway was poured over the soil, and if the driveway is at a lower elevation than the rest of your home, water run-off from rain and melted snow may find its way into settled pockets of the earth, creating a vacuum effect. This vacuum effect pulls dirt away from the concrete creating a bridge under your driveway. This causes the cement slab to start to sink and settle.

My house was built in the last five years; why does the driveway need lifting?
The weather in Kansas City fluctuates and, in the past, has been very dry. As a result, dirt and soil are hard. The contractor who built your house brought in the dirt for your driveway and packed it before laying down the concrete driveway. The dry soil was prone to not settling as well as it had in years past. As a result, your fairly new driveway may need lifting.
In the last few years, there were two driveways that we could not repair, and those customers were not charged. One job took three trips to get the driveway raised. If we can’t raise it, there is no charge!
