Concrete Levelling - Pool Decks

Make your pool deck safe again.

Is your pool deck cracked and uneven? Are there areas that have settled and sunk into the ground? If you've got a problem with a sunken and settled pool deck, you're not alone. It's a very common problem many homeowners have with their pool decks. But don't worry—we have the best solution!

Pool decks usually sink and settle because the soil underneath isn't dense enough to support them. When the land is excavated so a new pool can be placed, the soil around the pool is very loose; if the concrete contractor doesn't take extra care to compact the soil around the new pool before installing it and then pouring the pool deck, settlement is likely to occur. This settlement doesn't just detract from the look of your pool; it can cause tripping hazards to people using the pool deck. Luckily for homeowners already experiencing sinking and settling pool decks, we have an easy fix! Polyurethane concrete levelling!

Why is my pool deck sinking and settling?

Is your pool deck cracked and uneven? Are there areas that have settled and sunk into the ground? If you've got a problem with a sunken and settled pool deck, you're not alone. It's a very common problem many homeowners have with their pool decks. But don't worry—we have the best solution!

If there was poor compaction during the construction of your pool deck, then the soil underneath the concrete may not have been able to support its weight. This can result in the settling, sinking and cracking of your pool deck. This will create an uneven surface and tripping hazards, which are dangerous to anyone using your pool deck.

Water pooling is another common reason pool decks sink and settle. When water pools on or around your pool deck, it can get underneath the slab and wash away the subgrade, making it difficult for the pool deck surface to stay level. If you have a hot tub or other pool equipment that is leaking and water is collecting around your pool deck, this water may be collecting in small pockets underneath your pool deck slab, causing it to settle over time.

The natural freeze/thaw cycle is another culprit that causes pool decks to sink and settle. Freezing temperatures and thawing each year cause the expansion and contraction of concrete slabs. If there are small cracks in or voids under your pool deck where water can collect during freezing temperatures, the water will expand during freezing which will cause your pool deck to crack and sink further into the ground. If your pool deck is cracked, sinking or settling, the team at Maritime Concrete Lifting can make them level and make your pool deck safe for use again!
