Expert Sinkhole Repair Atlanta

Nothing is more unsettling than discovering that your house, fence, driveway, walkway, or sidewalk is susceptible to a trash pit or sinkhole. Sinkholes and trash pits can come in all sizes and can cause many different types of safety risks. For instance, small sinkholes that occur in backyards pose hazards for people to step in them and twist their ankle. Other sinkholes that occur near large trees or fences can cause severe tilt shifts and pose danger to the house or cars. Any type of surface depression in your yard should be addressed soon to prevent further damage in the future.

If you are in need of professional sinkhole repair in Atlanta, look no further than Sudlow Concrete. Our expert Atlanta sinkhole repair team has decades of combined experience in repairing sinkholes of all shapes and sizes.

What are Sinkholes and Trash Pits?

Sinkholes and trash pits are very common in Atlanta and occur in areas where previous construction projects bury debris such as trees, rotting stumps, trash, and other materials underground. What happens over time is these materials decay, causing a collapse of the underground bedrock to form a hole or depression in the ground’s surface. Another reason for Atlanta sinkholes is due to old sewer pipes that are left underground by the city, which is information rarely disclosed to homeowners when purchasing property. Other activities such as drilling, mining, construction, and even heavy traffic can also weaken the surface of the earth and potentially form a sinkhole.

Sinkholes in Atlanta, GA more often occur from man-made causes, but they can also happen as a result of natural erosion or underground water sources that weaken bedrock and erode minerals in the soil, forming a depression in the earth’s surface. Bedrock made of limestone, carbonate rock, and salt deposits are particularly at risk for forming sinkholes.

How to Repair Sinkholes

The most important step of properly repairing Atlanta sinkholes is identifying the root cause. Many homeowners will simply pour dirt or other materials in the sinkhole to fill it up temporarily. This method is improper, dangerous, and will actually speed up the decaying process – it will not fix the issue. If dirt is simply added to the sinking area, it will only add more weight to the weakened surface and actually cause it to sink even faster, especially when it gets wet.

The only way to properly repair a sinkhole is to find its root source, which requires extensive excavation and fully cleaning out the trash pit. The sinkhole will not go away until the underground debris is fully cleaned out and removed. Because the debris can be deep underground, excavation allows for full visibility to the size and depth of the trash or other debris causing the sinkhole’s surface depression. A professional sinkhole repair company is strongly recommended, because you can never tell if the sinkhole is large or small until comprehensive excavation is complete.

Sinkhole Warning Signs

Sinkholes can be dangerous mainly because they are so unpredictable. Because they form so slowly through natural geophysical shifts, it can be difficult to determine if enough change occurs to be able to identify it. If you suspect your yard or land may have an emerging sinkhole, there are certain warning signs you can look for to properly diagnose it. Watch out for the following sinkhole warning signs:

  • Slopes or dips that appear in yards
  • Dead patches of plants or grass
  • Buckling of concrete slabs, driveways, or walkways
  • Cracks in stairs, bricks, or blocks
  • Tilt shifts in retaining walls
  • Cracks around doors or window frames
  • Drained ponds
  • Wells filled with debris
  • Fences, trees or large plants that tilt or fall over

The presence of one or more of these sinkhole warning signs could indicate that a sinkhole or trash pit is emerging. Watch for these warning signs and call a professional sinkhole repair company to help you diagnose if a sinkhole is actually present.

  • Communication is a key!

    Sudlow Concrete repaired a large sink hole in my driveway and another small area of the driveway that had cracked and was becoming an issue as well. The project took two days. The owner, Bill Sudlow, communicated with me through the entire process which was nice. I’ve been dealing with several contractors this month and not everyone understands that communication is a key factor to the home owner. The end results – – it looks great. Very pleased.

  • Quality of work was top notch!

    Bill Sudlow was such a pleasure to work with. He gave us an honest quote and the quality of work was top notch!! His crew was very friendly, hardworking and most importantly they cleaned up after themselves as if they were never there, except the gorgeous new driveway, with the lovely brick inlay they matched to the color of the house very well! Would recommend them to everyone!! Thanks Bill!

  • Bill and his crew were exceptional.

    Timely, professional and pricing was on point. I have worked with many contractors and Sudlow has moved to the top of my list. He will be getting a lot of business from the neighbors

  • The crew arrived on time

    Sudlow Concrete replaced parts of my concrete driveway and patio that were cracked and sinking. The crew arrived on time, worked in a very efficient manner, and did an excellent job. They also did an excellent job in making sure the job site was clean before leaving. I would use them again for any fututre concrete work.

  • Professional & Friendly

    Bill and his team do good work. I had them out a few days ago 7/2. The concrete is still curing but so far it looks great! Pricing was fair. He and his team were out ON TIME. The were professional and friendly. I will use them again in the future!

  • Highly Recommended

    We hired Bill and his crew at Sudlow Concrete for a fairly extensive driveway replacement/expansion job. The whole team was a pleasure to work with. There were several complexities to the job that other companies didn’t want to handle. Sudlow did it all and did an excellent job. I would highly recommend them.

  • Couldn't be happier

    Bill Sudlow and his crew just finished our driveway today, and we couldn’t be happier. We received four quotes and ultimately went with Sudlow Concrete based on all the great reviews and his very competitive price. He takes great care of his crew, and they have worked with him for a long time. I was very impressed with how hard these guys worked and how meticulous they were with smoothing out the concrete and adding vertical and horizontal joints. Bill also helped us with filling in a sinkhole in our backyard. I would highly recommend Bill and his team for any concrete job.

  • Job Well Done!

    Sudlow Concrete is one of the very best companies, bar-none!!……..arrived on time!…very professional!….kept his word on the price for the large parking pad with a ramp. Extremely conscious of the work that is being performed by his crew!……and the customer’s expectations….gave expert advice for working in a close confinement area while avoiding damaging the sprinkle system and heads/pipes all over the backyard. Moreover, Bill wanted to know before he left if we were completely satisfied with the results; the answer from me and my wife was a resounding YES!!……also, the job is not finished, if the clean-up is lacking…..JOB WELL DONE; Sudlow Concrete.
