Kansas City’s January temperatures always fluctuate from below freezing to a mild and sunny 65 degrees. This is a great exercise of capturing all seasons within the 31 days in January, however this can wreck havoc on your sunken concrete areas. Many homeowners in Kansas City, Leawood, Overland Park, Lee’s Summit, Northland, St. Joe, and Grandview areas are trying to understand the reasons why soil sinks, and consequently how to repair sunken concrete.
To begin, the factors that impact sinking concrete can include soil shrinkage, compaction and settling. These are mainly caused by water and climate, including the freeze and thaw cycles. If the soil below the concrete slab isn’t compact and stable, concrete can easily sink as the soil beneath it solidifies and hardens. If the soil is too wet or too dry, this can also cause concrete to sink.
