WHAT SIZE ARE THE LIFT HOLES?
The holes that are drilled are 1 1/2" and patched with a mortar.
ARE THE PATCHED HOLES NOTICEABLE?
The holes that are drilled to lift your concrete will be noticeable because we are putting a fresh patch on aged concrete. Over time, the patch holes will blend in with the existing concrete making them less noticeable.
WHAT ABOUT THE EXISTING CRACKS IN MY CONCRETE?
The cracks that are present in your concrete will still exist after the lifting process. Atlas Concrete does not provide crack repair, that would be up to the homeowner. Concrete caulk is the best product for filling cracks and can be purchased at your local home improvement stores.
HOW LONG BEFORE WE CAN USE THE AREA THAT WAS LIFTED?
Most of the areas can be used immediately, caution should be used not to disturb the small patch holes until they dry (approx. 24 hours). Garage floors and driveways should be left unused for 24 hours.
