Concrete Installation & Repair Services in Dallas, TX

Although most people associate the early use of concrete with the Roman Empire, concrete and its precursors were in use more than 8,000 years ago. The formula for modern concrete dates to the early 1800s, however. Today, concrete is widely used in the greater Dallas area for a variety of projects, including sidewalks, patios, curbs, parking lots, ramps, dumpster pads, and pool surrounds. Whether you need a concrete repair or a concrete installation, HI-TEK Paving Services can assist you. 

What Is a Concrete Repair?

In general, a Dallas concrete repair professional considers a repair as any procedure that is needed to restore a concrete pavement to a safe, functional structure. To accomplish this, contractors may employ multiple techniques, including a Dallas concrete installation to replace one or more slabs. The technique chosen by a concrete repair company will depend on the type and severity of the damage. 


  1. Mudjacking: If a slab has subsided so that it is sunken lower than the adjacent slabs, mudjacking may be an effective concrete repair in Dallas. Mudjacking involves drilling several small holes in the slab, then pumping a cement slurry through them to raise the slab.
  2. Concrete Crack Repair: If the pavement is not a load-bearing vertical component, a concrete repair company might inject epoxy or another material into the crack.
  3. Shot Blasting: A concrete pavement with a pitted or stained surface may be addressed with a method known as shot blasting. The process is similar to sand blasting, but it uses metal beads instead of sand and is much more powerful.
  4. Concrete Grinding: Grinding is used by concrete repair contractors to address problems of a similar nature to those addressed by shot blasting. However, if either process can be used, shot blasting is usually faster and less expensive.
  5. Concrete Overlays: A concrete overlay can be the solution to a pavement that has shallow or cosmetic damage. Concrete overlays share certain similarities with a concrete repair and installation. The contractor installs a thin layer of concrete over a properly prepared existing pavement.
  6. Dallas Concrete Installation: Some types of damage require the demolition and replacement of an existing slab. For example, uplifted slabs and slabs that have been forced out of their horizontal alignment often need a concrete repair installation.

Before selecting a concrete repair or installation, we perform an inspection to identify the source of the damage so that it can be corrected. Unless the source is addressed, it is very likely that the pavement will continue to suffer the same damage repeatedly.

What Are Some Possible Sources of Damage to a Concrete Pavement?

Concrete Installation & Repair Services In Dallas, TexasThere are various things that can necessitate a concrete repair in Dallas. Factors that can contribute to concrete damage include the pavement’s construction, the underlying soil, and the surrounding terrain. 


  1. If a contractor does not perform a Dallas concrete installation correctly, the pavement could develop cracks. The contractor must ensure that the pavement rests on a stable foundation and that the concrete is thick enough to support the weights that will be placed on it.
  2. There are many different types of soil in the metroplex, and some of them are less stable than others. For example, a soil with a high amount of clay can be prone to expanding during wet seasons and contracting during dry ones. This can lead to sunken, misaligned, or uplifted slabs.
  3. If water penetrates under the surface around the pavement’s edges, it can lead to cracks as well as slab movement. If the pavement does not have the proper drainage, delamination can occur.
  4. Tree roots are extremely common problems for concrete pavements. Some of the most popular trees in the metroplex have extensive networks of lateral roots that spread far and wide. Over time, roots can grow underneath a concrete slab and lift it or crack it. Roots can also exert pressure against a concrete slab, cracking it or forcing it out of position.

Why Are Concrete Repairs Important?

There are four excellent reasons to call for a Dallas concrete repair as soon as you notice damage to your pavement. 


  1. Damaged concrete is not attractive, so it could reduce the curb appeal of your property. Curb appeal plays a role in how others perceive the value of whatever service or goods you offer.
  2. If you do not call for a prompt concrete repair in Dallas, it is extremely likely that water penetration will cause additional damage. This increases your repair costs.
  3. If the damage to your pavement leaves you in violation of certain laws or ordinances, you could be fined or sued. For example, the Americans with Disabilities Act has strict requirements for the condition of all pavements used by people with mobility issues.
  4. By neglecting to call a local concrete repair professional, you are placing everyone who uses your pavement at risk. For example, a sunken or uplifted slab could trip pedestrians, cause motorcyclists or bicyclists to crash, or cause drivers to lose control of their cars.

What Does a Dallas Concrete Installation Involve?

Regardless of the type of pavement, the basic steps involved in a Dallas concrete installation are more or less the same. The primary differences involve whether it is a concrete repair installation or a new construction project on undeveloped land. 

  1. If we are performing a concrete repair installation or a complete reconstruction, we start by demolishing the existing concrete pavement and hauling it away.
  2. If the project requires any excavations, we remove the proper depth of soil and haul it away.
  3. If the design calls for it, we install an aggregate base.
  4. We grade the site so that it will drain properly.
  5. We level and compact the area.
  6. We construct and install forms to hold the concrete slurry.
  7. If the engineering specifications require the use of rebar or mesh, we place the reinforcing materials.
  8. The next step is to pour the concrete slurry into the forms, then we texture or smooth the surface.
  9. We can normally remove the forms within two or three days. However, you will need to keep the pavement closed to traffic for the time we recommend, which is usually between five days and two weeks.
