For any kind of service you’re thinking about ordering from a third party for your property, knowing the factors that will impact your final cost is very important. This is true for concrete repair services like concrete lifting and leveling, which are often important processes that can show major improvements to property value, safety and several other areas.
At Lift-Up Concrete Lifting, LLC, we’re happy to offer Utah’s very best concrete repair services for numerous areas of your property, from driveways and garage floors to step leveling, patios many more. What are some of the key elements that we’ll inform you of with regard to the likely cost of any concrete lifting or leveling job we perform on your property? Here are several to consider.
Severity of Cracks or Damage
One of the single largest factors in the cost of concrete repair is the severity of any cracks or damage that are already present. Obviously, more extensive repairs will take more time and effort to complete, which will impact the overall price you’ll be asked to pay.
The most common form of damage is the concrete crack, which can be caused by a variety of reasons, from extreme weather changes to excessive weight being placed on the concrete. No matter what the reason for the damage is, our team at Lift-Up Concrete will always be able to provide an accurate estimate for repair before any work begins.
Size of Area in Question
Another major cost factor is the size of the area that needs to be repaired. A small crack in your driveway will obviously cost much less to repair than a large section that has been lifted or sunken.
This is something our team takes into careful consideration when we arrive to provide an estimate. We’ll make sure to get an accurate measurement of the area in question so that you can be sure you’re getting a fair and honest price.
Type of Work Required
The third cost factor is the type of work that needs to be completed. Some types of concrete repair are more complex than others, and will thus require more time, effort and materials to complete.
For example, mudjacking is a common repair method that involves injecting a special mud-like substance beneath the concrete in order to lift it back into place. This is often used for slab lifting, which can be caused by things like poor soil conditions or erosion.
Mudjacking is generally less expensive than other types of concrete repair, but it’s still important to factor in the type of work required when considering your budget.
At Lift-Up Concrete Lifting, we’re always happy to provide an accurate and honest estimate for any type of concrete repair job you need completed on your Utah property. We understand the importance of getting the job done right the first time, and we’ll always work hard to ensure that you know what you’re paying for ahead of time.
In many cases, issues with soil are some of the primary causes of lifted or sunken concrete. This is why soil conditions are often taken into consideration when estimating the cost of a concrete repair job.
If the soil beneath your concrete is particularly soft or loose, it’s more likely that the concrete will settle or sink over time. This can often be remedied with mudjacking or another type of concrete leveling, but it’s important to note that the condition of the soil will impact the overall cost.
At Lift-Up Concrete, we have a team of experienced professionals who can assess the condition of your soil and provide an accurate estimate for repair.
Another factor that can impact the cost of concrete repair is property access. In some cases, our team may need to use specialized equipment in order to reach the area that needs to be repaired.
If this is the case, it’s important to factor in the cost of this equipment rental when considering your budget for concrete repair.
Not all concrete repair jobs are created equal. Some may require a larger team in order to be completed in a timely and efficient manner.
If your repair job is particularly large or complex, it’s important to factor in the cost of additional manpower when considering your budget.
Insurance or Warranty Coverage
In some cases, your insurance policy may cover the cost of concrete repair. This is often the case if the damage was caused by something like a tree falling on your property.
It’s important to check with your insurance provider ahead of time to see if they offer coverage for concrete repair. In many cases, even if they don’t cover the entire cost, they may offer some coverage that can help offset the expense.
At Lift-Up Concrete Lifting, we offer a warranty on all of our concrete repair services. This means that if you’re not completely satisfied with the results of our work, we’ll come back and make things right at no additional cost to you.
Immediacy of the Project
Finally, if your concrete repairs are of the emergency variety that require immediate attention, it’s important to factor in the cost of this immediacy when considering your budget. Because many concrete lifting companies have busy schedules, they will charge a bit more for repairs that need to be completed on an expedited timeline.
At Lift-Up Concrete Lifting, we understand that concrete repair is often an unexpected expense. That’s why we work with our customers to create a payment plan that works for their budget and needs. We also offer financing options for those who qualify.
