Ever wonder how arid weather conditions impact your home? While you might look out your window and see wilting landscaping and browning grass, there could be something even scarier lurking under your driveway.
Your driveway is poured directly on soil. During periods of dry weather, this soil can shrink and take up less space than before. This can lead to pockets of empty space where your driveway is no longer supported, which can cause the heavy concrete slabs above to sink.
If you’re seeing cracks that weren’t there last year, or maybe you’ve noticed that part of your driveway is sinking, it could be that shrinking soil is to blame.
The good news is, concrete can be raised back into place, so it’s level with the other concrete around it. It’s a relatively quick process that will allow you to use your concrete normally as soon as the next day.
