Pool Concrete Issues: How Concrete Repair Helps

In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some basics on why it’s important to attend to pool area concrete damage before the warm season hits. While concrete damage in any area of a property is potentially risky, these risks are even higher for areas surrounding pools at this time of year, since these spots get used way more often in the summer than the colder parts of the year.

At Lift-Up Concrete Lifting LLC, we’re happy to offer numerous areas of residential concrete lifting and leveling, from sidewalks and walkways to driveways, patios, decks and many other areas. For a combination of both aesthetic and safety needs, we’ve assisted plenty of clients with concrete repair for their pool areas, ensuring surfaces are smooth and clear for the upcoming season. Here are some of the reasons why concrete lifting and leveling are often so beneficial for damage in these concrete areas on your property.

Cost Factors

When significant concrete damage has occurred on a pool deck, or especially within the pool foundation itself, you generally have two options: Repairing the damage or replacing the entire setup. Simply put, the former is far more cost-effective than the latter in nearly every situation.

Speaking only about a deck, which is actually the less expensive replacement of the two forms of pool-related concrete damage, costs here tend to run about double the cost of lifting and leveling the concrete. In some cases, it might be even greater than double depending on the size and layout of the deck. And for pool foundation issues, which are even more expensive to repair, the gap might be even larger.

Safe, Reliable Outcomes

Another value-add area from concrete repair is the safety and reliability of the final product. Materials used for lifting and leveling are both safe and eco-friendly, so you won’t worry about harmful contaminants seeping through into your soil.

In addition, concrete repair is a strong and reliable option. Our concrete services come with very low repump rates and tend to last for decades without issue.


Aesthetics are important for pool areas, and concrete repair will not make any significant dent here – in fact, it will improve concrete appearance significantly. Our finishes come with very few injection holes or other notable signs, leaving your visual appeal high.

Quick and Easy

And finally, especially when compared to replacing a pool deck or pool foundation, concrete repair is very quick and easy. It takes little time for us to assess the issues and create a plan for addressing them, then to carry this plan out – on the flip side, replacing an entire deck or pool will often take days or weeks.
