Concrete Apron

justducky22December 23, 2010

We have a concrete apron along the left side of our house that has sunk down into the ground a bit. It is now pitched directly toward the foundation instead of away. When it rains the water pools (of course) along the foundation. There is a small bit of water seepage on part of that wall in the basement. Not a only happens when it downpours for more than a day at a time. For example, the last time it happened it had been raining for over a week straight and after a while ended up with a small puddle of water on the floor. My question is, what can we do to repair this? Can we dig up the apron and re-position? Should we call a professional? I would like to keep the apron for drainage as gutters are not an option. How would you approach this problem? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

You might be able to have the apron 'mud jacked' back into position.

Grout is injected under the low side to lift the concrete back into position.

It takes a lot of care against a basement wall, not as much against a foooter.
