Most homeowners don’t give basement concrete slabs much thought until there is a problem. Regardless of whether your metro Denver home is 100 years old or newly built, your basement probably has a concrete floor. Unfinished basements usually have uncovered concrete while finished basements have some type of flooring material or carpet on top.
If your concrete basement floor is in need of repair, several solutions are available. Depending on the type of damage, Stone & Concrete may recommend repairing, resurfacing, or replacing the concrete in your basement.
- Has the concrete settled in some places?
- Are there large cracks in the concrete?
- Is the concrete breaking apart or disintegrating?
- Is the damage on the surface, like pockmarking or flaking?
Shifting soils, water drainage issues, and freeze-thaw cycles from our Denver winters can cause damage to basement floors. Problems like cracks and settling can happen if the concrete slab was installed without a proper sub base. Poor quality materials and shoddy workmanship can also lead to damage, as can large furniture and other heavy materials, especially if placed unevenly on concrete slabs that lack proper support.
Most basement repairs can be done with limited disruption to your home. If the damage isn’t too extensive, concrete repair or resurfacing may be options. If we need to remove and replace your basement floor, our crews have the experience and tools needed to do the job done right even if there is limited access to the basement.
