Slab Settlement & Crack Repair

Los Angeles Slab Settlement & Crack Repair

A concrete slab is a shallow rebar reinforced concrete structural component built onsite using formwork, a type of boxing mold form into which concrete is formed.

A slab is typically between 3-4-6 inches thick, usually intended for floors and ceilings spanning between support beams, girders or columns, while thinner slabs are more commonly used for exterior paving.

Concrete slab can be damaged by a variety of elements, such as earthquake damage and soil problems throughout the years and can lead to different types of problems, such as injuries, bugs and other critters getting in, and water damage.

If the crack or damage goes unattended long enough, it could lead to other damage in other parts of the concrete, such as structural damage which can become costly to repair.
