There is a significant amount of open area under this concrete slab foundation. Addressing the issue before it becomes worst will likely prevent the concrete slab from cracking due to stress.
Soil erosion, soil shrinkage, soil compaction, soil settling & pests can all contribute to creating voids beneath a concrete slab.
One of the worst areas of voids beneath this concrete slab was near the front door.
As the soil compacts underneath a concrete slab, the unsupported slab will sink as well, usually cracking in one or more spots. We were able to repair this before further cracking could occur.
You can see the once open void now has PolyLevel® to provide support.

The owners of this central Arizona home reached out to us after discovering a void beneath the concrete slab of their home. Voids under concrete are created when the concrete is only partially supported by soils beneath the slab. Other areas of soil may settle or can be carried away by another means (water, pests, etc).
We use PolyLevel® to lift concrete slabs to a level position with less weight and disruption than traditional mud jacking or slab jacking process. It is also less expensive than mud jacking or slab jacking the concrete slab would be.
This concrete leveling and void repair is one of the many concrete repair solutions we provide. Recommended foundation repair plans also come with a transferable warranty, should the home ever be sold.
