Sunken concrete occurs when the sub base was not prepared properly. Loose dirt may have been used for the sub grade and not compacted properly which is common practice of profit driven new home builders. When this dirt settles due to uncompacted soils the concrete is unsupported and will be more susceptible to sinking. This is often the case when underground utilities and sewers are located beneath the concrete. Depending on the severity of the damage, repair may be possible. If you wait too long, the remainder of concrete may also be damaged. It’s cheaper to repair sections versus a full replacement. A good concrete contractor will able to solve your problem with the best solution.
