Recognizing the Telltale Signs of a Sinking Concrete Pool Deck Southwest Marietta, GA
anglin concrete floor leveling 2

A concrete pool deck serves as the ultimate oasis for relaxation and recreation, providing a sturdy and attractive foundation for your outdoor oasis. However, over time, factors such as soil erosion, water infiltration and natural settling can lead to the gradual sinking of your pool deck, compromising its structural integrity and aesthetic appeal. The following are signs of a sinking concrete pool deck and how the effectiveness of polyurethane foam injections can restore stability and level uneven pool decks.

Signs Your Concrete Pool Deck is Sinking

One of the most apparent signs of a sinking pool deck is the presence of cracks or fissures in the concrete surface. These may start as hairline fractures but can progressively widen and deepen as the deck continues to settle unevenly. Other signs of concrete pool deck sinking include:

  • Uneven or Sunken Sections: Take note of any areas of the pool deck that appear uneven or sunken compared to the surrounding surface. These depressions can create tripping hazards and detract from the overall safety and aesthetics of your outdoor space.
  • Pooling Water: If you notice water pooling in certain areas of the pool deck, it could indicate that the surface has become uneven, preventing proper drainage. This standing water not only poses slip and fall risks but also accelerates the deterioration of the concrete over time.
  • Separation from Adjacent Structures: Keep an eye out for signs of separation between the pool deck and adjacent structures, such as the pool coping or surrounding patio. Gaps or misalignments may indicate that the deck has shifted or sunk relative to its original position.

Polyurethane Foam Injections: A Solution for Sinking Pool Decks

Polyurethane foam injections offer a cost-effective and non-invasive solution for leveling sinking pool decks and other concrete surfaces. This innovative technique involves injecting expanding polyurethane foam beneath the sunken areas of the pool deck, where it expands to fill voids, stabilize the soil and raise the concrete back to its original position. Some of the benefit of polyurethane foam injection leveling include:

  • Quick and Efficient: Polyurethane foam injections can be completed quickly, with minimal disruption to your poolside activities. The lightweight equipment and precise injection process allow for targeted repairs without the need for extensive excavation or demolition.
  • Long-lasting Results: Polyurethane foam injections provide a durable and long-lasting solution for leveling sinking pool decks without invasive measures like mudjacking or concrete replacement. The injected foam is resistant to moisture and erosion, ensuring that your pool deck remains stable and level for years to come.
  • Minimal Environmental Impact: Polyurethane foam injections are environmentally friendly, with low VOC emissions and minimal waste generation. The non-toxic nature of the foam makes it safe for use around water sources, ensuring minimal disruption to your pool environment.
  • Cost-effective: Compared to traditional repair methods, polyurethane foam injections offer significant cost savings by eliminating the need for extensive labor, materials, and downtime. This makes them an attractive option for homeowners looking to restore their pool decks without breaking the bank.

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
