Knowing the factors that will affect your final cost when ordering a service from a third party for your property is essential. The same is true for concrete repair services like concrete lifting and leveling, which can show major improvements in property value, safety, and several other aspects.
At Cloud Concrete, we offer Concrete services in Seattle for a variety of areas on your property, including driveways, garage floors, step leveling, patios, and more. What are some of the key elements we'll inform you about when it comes to the likely cost of concrete lifting or leveling on your property? Below are a few things to consider.
Cracks or damage severity
Cracks or damage already present in concrete play a significant role in the cost of concrete repair. There is no doubt that more extensive repairs require more time and effort, resulting in a higher cost.
Concrete cracks are the most common form of damage, which can be caused by a variety of factors, including extreme weather conditions or excessive weight. In any case, Cloud Concrete can provide an accurate estimate for repair before any work begins, regardless of the cause of the damage.
Size of Area in Question
Costs are also heavily influenced by the size of the damaged area. The cost of repairing a small crack in your driveway will be much lower than repairing a large section that has sunk or been lifted.
A team member from our company carefully considers this when providing an estimate. We'll accurately measure the area in question so 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 done. There are some types of concrete repair that require more effort, time, and materials than others.
In order to lift concrete back into place, mudjacking involves injecting a special mud-like substance beneath the concrete. It is possible for slabs to be lifted due to poor soil conditions or erosion.
The cost of mudjacking is generally lower than other types of concrete repair, but it's still important to consider the type of work needed.
For any concrete repair job you need completed on your Seattle property, Cloud Concrete is happy to provide an accurate and honest estimate. Our top priority is completing the job right the first time, and we always let you know what you're paying for.
Concrete that has lifted or sunken is often caused by issues with soil. A concrete repair job is often estimated based on soil conditions.
Over time, the concrete is more likely to settle or sink if the soil beneath it is particularly soft or loose. The overall cost of concrete leveling can be affected by the soil's condition, which can usually be remedied with mudjacking.
An experienced team of professionals at Cloud Concrete can assess the condition of your soil and provide an accurate repair estimate.
Access to the property can also affect the cost of concrete repair. Our team may need to use specialized equipment in some cases to reach the area that needs to be repaired.
Consider the cost of this equipment rental when considering your concrete repair budget if this is the case.
Concrete repair jobs are not all the same. In order to complete some tasks efficiently and on time, it may be necessary to assemble a larger team.
When considering your budget, it's important to factor in the cost of additional manpower if your repair job is particularly large or complex.
Warranty or insurance coverage
The cost of concrete repair may be covered by your insurance policy in some cases. Often, this is the case when your property has been damaged by something like a tree falling.
In order to determine whether concrete repair is covered by your insurance policy, contact your provider in advance. Although they may not cover the entire expense, they may offer some coverage that can help offset the cost.
We offer a warranty on all concrete repair services at Cloud Concrete. In other words, if you're not satisfied with our work, we'll come back and make things right at no additional cost.
The urgency of the project
Last but not least, when considering your budget, you should consider the cost of immediate concrete repairs if they are an emergency. Many concrete lifting companies have busy schedules, so they will charge a bit more for repairs that need to be completed quickly.
Our team at Cloud Concrete understands that concrete repair can be an unexpected expense. With our customers, we create a payment plan that meets their needs and budget. Financing is also available to those who qualify.
