If you're reflooring your Denver area home or business enlist the help of a professional concrete leveling and flattening expert right away.
Signs You Need Concrete Leveling and Flattening
When you're ready to revamp your flooring, one of the things that you need to be concerned about how level the current surface is. After all, it's the base upon which your new flooring will sit, and you want the best possible results. If you notice any of the following signs, however, it's time to get help:
- A floor that sags towards the center of the room.
- Sloped floors, uneven floor surfaces.
- Interior doors that are hard to operate.
- Cracks in the floor, along the baseboards, or up the walls.
Why Is it Important to Level and Flatten Concrete Floors?
Flooring installations require a flat surface, but that's not always the way things are in Denver. In fact, it's difficult to find a flat concrete floor, whether it's in a home or in a commercial building. If you lay new flooring over an uneven concrete floor, several problems can occur including:
- Humps and Bumps May Appear in the New Floor
- Tiles Can Pop, Crack, and Break When Walked On
- Laminate Flooring will Come Apart

What Causes an Uneven Foundation Slab?
It would seem that a concrete slab as big as the one your home or business is on would be pretty solid, right? The truth is, concrete can fail under certain conditions. Here are just a couple of reasons your concrete slab or basement floor isn't quite as level as it once was.
Over time, it's normal for your structure to settle. This process can take a toll on your foundation, especially if it consists of multiple concrete slabs. Because the slabs are independent, settling may be more apparent in some areas than others.
Another reason you may experience issues with an uneven concrete slab is the initial installation. Most warehouse floors are nice and flat due to the equipment used to pour and level them. In homes and other structures, this may not be the case.
Benefits of Professional Concrete Leveling and Flattening
You know that uneven flooring isn't going to benefit your home or building. In fact, you realize that a flat floor is essential. You may not know that there are some distinct benefits to having your concrete slab professionally leveled:
- Save Money - Concrete leveling is substantially less expensive than replacing a concrete slab.
