Is your driveway cracked or sinking? Are potholes slowly wrecking the suspension of your car? Does water pool in places it shouldn’t? If any of these problems are happening to your driveway, it’s time to have it repaired or replaced. Whether you need a concrete, asphalt, or gravel driveway repaired, Utah Foundation Repair can help.
A driveway is an important part of your home, and having one that works well and looks nice can really increase your home’s curb appeal. This is especially important if you will someday want to sell your home. The better the outside of your home looks (including your driveway), the more money you’ll get for it. Even if you don’t plan to sell your home anytime soon, it’s important to have a driveway that looks good and doesn’t have potholes and cracks that can damage your cars.
Not only will the value of your home go up when you have your driveway repaired or replaced, but you’ll also be much happier. Nobody wants to look outside and see a driveway with weeds growing through cracks, or potholes filling with water, or areas that are lower than others. It just doesn’t look good. Most homeowners try to make their home and yard look nice, and another way to do that is by making sure your concrete, asphalt, or gravel driveway is in good shape.
If you’re wondering how to repair cracks in your driveway, know that you can fill small cracks or potholes by yourself without much hassle, but bigger, wider cracks and large potholes will need some serious help.

If you’re not sure whether or not your driveway needs to be repaired, give us a call and we can help you decide what will be the best course to take. Here are some common driveway problems to get you thinking about your own driveway:
If your driveway is cracked, it may just be old. Most driveways that are older than 20 years will start to crack sooner or later. This is because the driveway materials start to break down and separate from each other. If your driveway is newer than 20 years and has started to crack, then it may have been installed improperly. While there may be another issue causing the problem, improper installation makes up a large portion of newly cracked driveways.
If your original driveway contractor didn’t correctly install the base or sub-base of your driveway, then the concrete or asphalt will begin to crack long before it should.
Another reason your driveway may be cracking no matter what its age is because you’re using salt to thaw the ice. While salt is very helpful to provide traction on slippery surfaces, it can seriously damage the asphalt or concrete underneath. Once the ice is thawed beneath the salt, that salt then seeps into the asphalt or concrete. This salt can then freeze and put pressure on the above material, eventually causing a crack. To avoid this problem, you can use sand to give you traction on ice. If you really need to melt the ice on your driveway, use a minimum amount of salt-based product.
No matter what the reason is behind your cracked driveway, Utah Foundation Repair can help fix it.
Driveway with potholes:
If potholes have formed in your driveway, it’s time to get them fixed. Driving over potholes is bad for your car and can potentially damage it. Instead of dealing with potholes forever and spending money to fix the suspension of your car, spend some money now to fix the potholes forever. You’ll be glad you did.
Potholes are often formed by water freezing and expanding, which can lead to disintegrating materials and holes in the surface of your driveway. Rather than letting your driveway become a serious eyesore, take the time now to let Utah Foundation Repair fix the potholes in your driveway.
If your driveway is uneven, then it was probably installed improperly. Either that or the wear and tear of years of hard weather has finally gotten the best of it. Once concrete or asphalt is installed, it will soon start to shift and settle into its place. If the base or sub-base wasn’t installed correctly, this shifting and settling will cause parts to go higher than others, resulting in uneven ground. This uneven ground can be a tripping hazard and isn’t pretty to look at.
If you’re sick of looking at an uneven driveway, or tripping over it and looking foolish, give Utah Foundation Repair a call.
Water pools on driveway:
If your driveway doesn’t drain properly, you may be faced with standing water that pools in places you don’t want it to be. Nobody wants a pool of water sitting on their driveway, and if this is what’s happening to you, it’s time to get it fixed.
Whether your driveway isn’t steep enough, is too steep, or has holes that are keeping the water there, Utah Foundation Repair can help.
Driveway is sinking:
Nobody wants their driveway to sink. Not only is this annoying, but it’s also an eye sore. If your driveway is sinking, then it was probably installed incorrectly or the materials beneath your driveway have decomposed or collapsed, taking the concrete or asphalt with it. By taking the time now to have your driveway repaired, you can save yourself a lot of hassle in the future.

Is the sidewalk in front of your home cracked, broken, or sinking? Are pieces of concrete missing or is it uneven? It’s important to take care of all the asphalt and concrete near your home, and your driveway may not be the only thing you need to think about. The sidewalk in front of your home may also be in need of repair. If your concrete sidewalk is cracked, broken, sinking, missing pieces, or uneven, it may be time to have it repaired.
A good-looking sidewalk is crucial to your home’s curb appeal. Even if your driveway and home look nice, an ugly sidewalk can ruin the visual effect. Besides, you aren’t the only one using your sidewalk. If the sidewalk in front of your home isn’t properly maintained, your neighbors, friends, and anyone passing by will have to deal with it as well. Since you’re the one responsible for taking care of your sidewalk, you should take that responsibility seriously.
It’s easy to fix small cracks yourself, but if you’re faced with bigger cracks, missing pieces of concrete, or an uneven surface, you’ll need to call a professional contractor. If you’re looking to have your sidewalk repaired, Utah Foundation Repair can help. No matter what’s wrong with your sidewalk, you can’t go wrong when you trust Utah Foundation Repair. If you live in Northern or Southern Utah and need your sidewalk repaired, give Utah Foundation Repair a call today! We provide a 100% Free Estimate!
Sometimes it can be hard to tell whether it’s time to have your sidewalk repaired. A good rule of thumb is that if there is a noticeable problem, it’s time to have it fixed. Keep in mind, though, that even a hard-to-see crack or uneven surface will eventually get bigger until it’s a real problem. It may be a good idea to have even the little things fixed now before they become big things and need some serious work.
Here are some of the reasons your sidewalk may not look so great and some ideas on how to prevent it from happening again in the future.
The sidewalk is cracked:
There are many reasons why your sidewalk may be cracked. One of the biggest reasons your sidewalk may be cracked is because of ground movement and excessive freeze-thaw cycles in the wintertime. The ground beneath and around your sidewalk may have shifted or settled, and this can cause cracks to appear. If you have trees growing near your sidewalks, the roots may have grown and caused the ground to shift.
If you live in an area where the ground freezes and thaws often throughout the year, this freeze-thaw cycle causes the ground to shift upwards and back many times, which will eventually make cracks appear. This also happens if you live in a place that is often very hot, like St. George, Utah. The heat makes concrete expand, which pushes on the surfaces around it and eventually forms cracks. These problems are also known as heaving, and heaving is usually unavoidable but is definitely annoying.
If your concrete sidewalk is cracked, you’ll need to have the cracks fixed to prevent them from getting bigger and causing other problems. Utah Foundation Repair can expertly and affordably fix your cracked sidewalks.
The Sidewalk is Sinking:
When the soil beneath or around your sidewalk shifts and settles due to water or rotting tree trunks (or a number of other reasons), your concrete will sink. Sinking concrete is usually pretty obvious and should be fixed right away. To fix sinking concrete, the ground around and beneath it will need to be jacked up and reinforced.
No matter what has caused your sidewalk to sink, Utah Foundation Repair will be able to professionally fix your sinking concrete and help you avoid more problems in the future.
The sidewalk is missing pieces:
Sometimes pieces of your sidewalk can chip away. Usually, these chips come off in small pieces that aren’t much of a problem other than that they are cosmetically ugly. But sometimes large chunks of concrete can be broken off, and these missing chunks can leave dangerous holes for someone to trip on or otherwise come to harm.
If your sidewalk is missing pieces and has become a hazard, it’s your responsibility to have it fixed before someone gets hurt. You don’t want to be responsible for somebody’s injury, and you definitely don’t want to deal with potential consequences of that. To avoid this and to keep the area in front of your home safe, make sure to have your sidewalk repaired whenever it is missing pieces of concrete.
Call Utah Foundation Repair to fix your sidewalks and keep you, your family, and everyone else in front of your home safe from injury.
Sidewalk is uneven:
There are many reasons why your sidewalk may be uneven. A primary reason your sidewalk may be uneven is because of water. When water runs beneath or pools around your sidewalk, it can then freeze, thaw, and expand, which will push against the concrete and cause it to become uneven. Another reason your sidewalk may be uneven is because of rotting tree roots beneath the soil that have decayed. When the roots that used to be holding up the concrete are no longer there, the concrete will sink down and become uneven. Another reason for an uneven sidewalk is that it may have been installed improperly in the first place. If the base or sub-base of your sidewalk wasn’t put in correctly, it will soon start to sink and become uneven.
To fix this or any of the other problems mentioned above (or problems not mentioned at all), contact Utah Foundation Repair. If you want a professional contractor that truly cares about you and actually enjoys repairing concrete, Utah Foundation Repair is the contractor for you. You can’t go wrong when you trust Utah Foundation Repair for all your sidewalk and concrete needs.
