When it comes to any home project, large or small, one of the primary factors for homeowners is return on investment, or ROI. Any home you buy is an investment in and of itself, as are several areas of improvement or upgrades you make that may impact how much the home is worth if you ever choose to sell.
At Lift-Up Concrete, our ability to provide fantastic ROI within your concrete lifting and leveling needs is one of our top points of pride. Concrete lifting can generally be done for less than half the cost of replacing that same concrete, and usually in just a fraction of the time. Let’s go over a few of the distinct reasons why our concrete services are the way to go if return on investment is a high priority for you.
Prevention of Future Issues
The primary benefit of concrete lifting and leveling, and one that will set the baseline for many of the other benefits discussed here, is the way it prevents future issues with your concrete surfaces. Whether for a walkway, driveway, garage floor, patio or any other area of your home or building, we can address the causes of concrete settling and provide long-term solutions to stop it from happening in the future. We also provide valuable seals to prevent cracks or any kind of unwanted moisture from entering.
If you wait on these kinds of services, on the other hand, your risk of high costs goes up. Smaller concrete issues can lead to larger ones, to the point where you may even be forced to replace the entire slab for a significant cost and hassle.
Lower Future Cost
In many cases, our concrete lifting services will be downright cheap for certain small jobs. Because we don’t have to remove full slabs to work on your issues, we can complete raising projects for even minuscule areas. But as we noted above, if you let these issues simply remain, the chances of them becoming worse and far more expensive in the future is high.
Increasing Property Value
Basements and foundation areas are some of the most important issues for potential homebuyers. If you are considering selling, you want to be able to tell buyers that your basement is waterproofed or that your foundation has recently been leveled and sealed – and to be able to prove this with documentation, which we’re happy to provide.
Some of the areas that are related to concrete settling, such as foundation cracks, uneven floors, wet basements and others can all lead to significant safety concerns in any home or building. Ensuring these are taken care of limits any health or injury expenses.
