ID:	11151Having uneven concrete will not only be an “eyesore”, but a potentially dangerous situation. However, it is something you cannot deal with without the right knowledge and advice on concrete leveling or concrete repair from experts.

When you have uneven concrete, you may opt to cover it up or repair it… we suggest repairing it. The problem with covering the uneven concrete is that the solution is just temporary. Repairing the uneven concrete gives the concrete a new and clean look.

There are essentially 2 options, do it yourself or hire a professional

Do it Yourself

There are a few options for a self-leveling compound, (a weighty substance that works with gravity). Gravity enables it to sink into the lower regions of the uneven concrete to make it level. If it’s indoors like a basement or tornado wall you can use the Self-leveling compound, you have to first tape the walls seam with the expansion tape to form a seal. This retains the SLC within the specific room/area with the uneven concrete floor.

You then mix the self-leveling compound properly with water and then apply it to the lower parts of the concrete. When the compound drys up, you will have the concrete floor or wall you desired. One thing you must be aware of is that the self-leveling compound dries very fast, so you must be very fast in applying it. You should also keep off the floor for at least 3 days to let the concrete floor cure.

Problems arise from concrete projects because of the material you are working with. Do It Yourself can be costly and extremely frustrating.

Hire a professional… Recommended!

Hiring a professional concrete repair company is the best solution to repair uneven concrete. The good thing about professional care is that they have the right knowledge and skills to repair the uneven concrete. They will fix your concrete floor or wall with the appropriate methods and work faster. They will save you the time to do the repairs by yourself.

A method like using the self-leveling compound is not that easy, it might be challenging, and if not keen enough, you might not do repair the floor properly. The professionals are trained on such methods, and you can expect the best results for an affordable service cost.

The above are some of the solutions to make your concrete even and beautiful. All in all, hiring a concrete repair professional, is just the best way to deal with uneven concrete flooring.
