Southern Concrete Raising


Founded in 2009, Southern Concrete Raising is a member of the Greater Houston and Southern Texas Better Business Bureau. Specializing in raising and leveling concrete surfaces such as floors, driveways, pool decks, patios, sidewalks, garages, foundations, parking lots, and city streets, Southern Concrete Raising eliminates eyesores and tripping hazards caused by concrete which has sunk or settled unevenly. It is proud to provide service to residential, commercial, and industrial clients and strives for client satisfaction through quality work. Southern Concrete Raising repairs uneven concrete quickly and effectively by drilling two small holes in the uneven concrete surface. It then pumps a proprietary blend of concrete, Portland clay, and dense-dirt topsoil into the holes using hydraulic pressure. This process slowly and safely raises the lower piece of concrete until it has become even with the higher piece. The holes are then filled to match the pre-existing concrete slab. In most cases, the surface may be returned to normal use right away. In the case of driveways or garages, a twelve hour resting period is recommended to prepare the concrete for the weight of vehicles. To ensure customer satisfaction, Southern Concrete Raising offers a full one-year warranty on all of its work. If repaired concrete sinks 1/2” or more in the first year following repair, Southern Concrete Raising will correct it free of charge. Southern Concrete Raising provides free estimates and does not require deposits. Religious institutions, regardless of faith, are eligible for a 25 percent discount on its services. The company is active within the community, supporting organizations such as Houston Express Soccer, the American Cancer Society, and Futbol de Primera. It also proudly sponsors The Clarkson Fund, which provides scholarships to Clarkson University students and provides additional funding for technological investments and school athletics.
