Repair or Replace?
If the concrete surrounding your home or business is cracking, crumbling, sinking or buckling it can lower the curb appeal, value of your property and create dangerous tripping hazards. Concrete is an enormous investment for property owners and it can be particularly frustrating when concrete fails long before it should.

Concrete lifting a cost effective alternative that creates lasting results at a fraction of the cost of a total concrete replacement with little impact on surrounding landscaping.
While some concrete is beyond repair, most concrete can be saved. An Interwest expert will be able to determine whether your concrete is a good candidate for repair vs replacement based on the condition of the concrete.

We want to ensure that you are directed to the best possible solution that promotes longevity of your concrete.
