Why Is My Concrete Chipping?
What causes crumbling and chipping concrete? There are several factors to consider, but the most common include:
- Moisture penetration through foundation walls
- Low-quality concrete
- Poor concrete installation
- Freeze and thaw cycle
- Hot and dry weather conditions
- Underground plumbing leaks or broken pipes
- Maturing tree roots and vegetation beneath concrete surfaces
- Inadequately compacted soil
Crumbling Concrete Can Indicate Structural Damage
Not only are crumbling and chipping concrete foundations a cosmetic issue, but they cause serious structural damage. If left untreated, you may face costly repairs. If you see crumbling and chipping concrete, inspect the entire foundation and your building's interior for signs of foundation failure including:
- Bowing or leaning walls
- Doors that won't close
- Sloping and uneven floors
- Wall cracks
- Foundation cracks
- Water seepage in basement

Solutions for Chipping Concrete in Arkansas
At Airlift Concrete Experts, we offer a concrete repair service called polyjacking to level, stabilize, and support weak concrete surfaces. This concrete repair method can be used on sidewalks, driveways, basement floors, pool slabs, and more. The installation process of polyjacking is quick, yet effective. The process involves drilling a small hole into the damaged concrete and injecting it with a polyurethane foam. As the foam expands underneath the concrete, it raises the surface back to normal and fills all voids and chipped concrete.
Polyjacking is a preferred method of repairing crumbling concrete because it offers numerous benefits, such as:
- Quick cure time
- Never loses density
- Seals cracks, joints, voids
- Prevents future settlement
- Immediate use of concrete surface
- Adheres to underside of surface
