    Pool deck settling and cracks, help from the experts

    Hello all TFP'ers.

    My pool deck has settled about 2" on one side.

    I had a concrete repair guy come out and take a look, and here's what I was told.

    Add a special type of concrete to build up the decking back to level- $1,800

    Remove the wood in the control joints and replace with a urethane rubber system and fill in any cracks- $875

    3 layer color seal- $4,250

    My concern was adding on weight to the top of the sagging concrete with more concrete. I was told not to worry about that, because once all of this is done there is no way water can penetrate and erode anything, so no more sagging. Then I would have a maintenance free deck with no worries, but at a price-tag of almost $7k.

    I couldn't find anyone that does any type of slabjacking in my area.

    Thoughts/suggestions?

    TIA.

    I'm not a concrete guy, put that seems pricey.

    Was gonna mention mud jacking, but I see you say you can't find anyone in your area.

    Google search along with your locality name or state name for the following (the process for repairing settled concrete goes by many different names):

    slab jacking
    mud jacking
    concrete leveling
    pressure grouting
    concrete raising

    I just wanted to thank Concrete Jack for taking the time to answer my PM's about the issues I have and repair options.

    He even Googled the different terms above for my area and found a company locally.

    They came out today and gave me a much better estimate, saving me over $1,500!

    If anyone is in the Williamsburg, VA area and needs any concrete decking repairs, I certainly would give them a call.

    Thanks again Concrete Jack for your time and help!
